    agreed! brought me tripod on ALL my overseas trips (shopping and sightseeing ones). that includes half of australia, west-coastal cities of the US, Japan, Hong Kong, BangKok, into the rainforests of Malaysia, up waterfalls, down rivers and into canyons and caves. it's indispensable cause you really don't know when you'll need it and you'll pat yourself on your back when you do use it.

    case in point: was too lazy to bring out my tripod on one of my day trips to the Bridge on River Kwai. BIG MISTAKE. missed out on some equisite cave shots along the way. ended up taking shots with my digital camera with the aid of a flash. Could get none of the effects i wanted.

    all boils down to what kinda shots you wanna take.

    i saw this guy on my last holiday trip he is holding a 35-80mm lens and A TRIPOD. then after the third day i never see he use a tripod already
    Nope, I carry my tripod even if I'm on a guided tour. Takes less than 20 sec to setup. And usually, I had it setup liao, so only need to extend the legs. Plus, I'm carry a 70-200mm f2.8 lens. What is a 35-80mm?

    Also, if you want good pictures, a tripod is a MUST.
    Please note, tripod is not a mere 'accessory'. It is as important as the camera itself, if not more. It is not merely complementary. It is a very impt part of every photographers equipment.

    Shadus, you are using Gitzo CF, so weight is not a problem

    I am using Gitzo also but not CF.

    Anyway, I will try to bring a tripod if going oversea.

    Finally, can gitzo crash a Canon SLR camrea?

    Hey guys. I think at the end of the day you should ask yourself what works for you and what doesn't. Why not shoot more and decide? The technology is there. Whether you get good pictures or not to a certain extent does depend on whether you have IS, USM, 1/8000 shutter, etc or not. But the final crunch comes from the skills of the photographer. (I've seen flash photography by photographers with Nikon system that sucks full-time, and others who use IS lenses still with blurred subjects. These people prob love debating what they have but they don't fully understand the technology behind it. In other words, they know how to talk more than they shoot.)

    No offence intended, but I feel arguing and debating in forums which camera system is better is just camera collectors' favorite past-time.

When I was still using my 28-135, the slowest I can go with IS was about 1/30 or 1/20 at the most. To lead you to think that you can handheld at 1 sec, Canon's marketing is doing a damn great job me think.
    well maybe
