Thread: Gears in the field

  1. #1

    Default Gears in the field

    I am just wondering...is it just me. Or does anyone else bring both their monopod and tripod when they are out for shooting? How do you keep everything in place?

    Depending on timing. For night shooting, tripod is essential.

    There are some tripods that can be converted into a monopod. You can search for them. That will save you the trouble of bringing two out

    depends on situation... at night, mostly it's the tripod which will be a better choice.

    early morning, low light, indoors low light, evening, night, light trails...

    there are many times when you need a tripod.. so just bring lor.. getting photos that turn out nice, will be better then saving some weight while traveling

    best is no need to bring...

    but if night shoot... die also must bring tripod...

    for long lens usage in daytime (e.g. airshow/portrait) ... a monopod will suffice...

    Select monopod or tripod depends on expected shoots of the day or moment. Others have already given their opinion.

    Tripod need not always be the one referred to by various members. Smaller tripods from Manfrotto or Vanguards. More unusual tripod would be from Castwind with similar model seen at K13 too.

    A tripod convertible to monopod, as other members have advocated, is an option. A back pack or sling bag or shoulder bag with built-in tripod or monopod strapping option, instead of an additional separate bag for tripod, helps to keep everything in place.

    Bring my gear along to work ... sling my tripod across the chest everywhere I go.

    Tripod, when needed, I strap to my chair.
