    Default Carrying your tripod

    How do you guys carry yours?

    Dedicated tripod bag? Tripod sling? Or attach to bag pack? Some funky method I've thought of?

    I'm currently carrying mine in a tripod bag but it ain't all that ideal really.

    I put it behind my ear and then pull it out and enlarge and extend just like the monkey king.

    Really depends on what you are carrying on your trip right? Your question like asking how you eat your noodles? With chopstick or fork?

    If you are that concerned, ask your GF to carry for you also good idea.

    I use a lanyard and hook it round the "neck", as shown in the pictures. it slings around my shoulder pretty well.

    I got it to attach onto the exterior of my slingshot which i bring around for holidays.
    But on planes, I will be obedient and put it in a nice tripod bag to make it look less dangerous

    How come too short ? I thought usually the tripod casings fit nicely to their tripods.

    Just use a tripod sling will do, easy setup. whereas using the bag will easily misplace it.

    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    Thats an interesting website! The swashbuckler is particularly interesting, though must try it out to see how it is like. For convinience, I think I'll splash out for a tripod strap.
