    Haha..orr okay...but I never had problems with that. Had more than enuff time to take pictures when I was in Istanbul....guided tour also.

    Permanantly deploy your tripod and carry it along lah. Will be a bit bulky but in my opinion, defintiely worth the trouble. Esp when you are in the blue mosque.

    Use ISO400 film can take inside the mosque handheld too.
    If mount on tripod, use monopod beter and can listen to the guide explain cos alot of these historical stories are very interesting. So won't feel like working taking picture mah.

    Must take picture, sightseeing, listen to stories and yet nice and relax mah.

    When I was there, saw 2 accidents... one tomatoe truck dive down a hill and saw a coach crash on a lorry and the lorry driver face crash inbetween... flatned and bloody :-0

    just a sidenote, from my trip a couple of yrs back, tripods are not allowed in many places. Beware of thieves. I nearly got pickpocketted while i was shooting. Hands in my camera bag.
