You could try and take a small bean bag or one of the "pen" tripods. I know these seem very small and "usless" for an SLR, but they do work. Just find something to lean on and you will have all the stability you need. Hope this helps!
With modern digital SLRs capable of clean (relatively noiseless) results at ISO 1600 and a capable wide angle lens of f/4 or bigger, a tripod nor mono is not really needed. Besides, most night urban scenery scapes are shot at ISO 200- 400 (give or take) because you do not need that high an ISO to handle the extremely intense urban lights.
At worst, and if you really need to anchor a cam, use an X-clamp or other similar clamps.
use cpl in the day is ok, since shutter speed is still high, but shoot at a angle about 60deg from the glass panel for max effect.
but during the night, as the shutter speed is already low, dont use cpl, try to put the lens against the glass panel, best if you use a rubber hood as it is flexible enough for you to angle your camera while preventing stray light from entering through the contact edge between the hood and glass panel.
i must confess, i have not been inside the capsule and dont plan to (unless its a treat, find ticket too ex). all suggestions here are base on experience and logic.
I brought my tripod in before. Not sure if they change the rules now. I went there on March which is before the official opening.
Anyway, I didn't manage to get a lot of nice pics tough, photos are mostly blur due to low light condition and very hard to focus :sweat:
Well I think I'd rather take pictures of the flyer then take pictures inside the flyer. There's not much to see IMO, just construction...construction...and more construction.. wait for the IR and dam to be finished.. =D
I brought my giant bag and tripod too......
They never say anything.. hahaha....
I think it depend whether the capsule is crowded or not.
That day I went. including my wife, baby and myself... there are only 8 of us in the capsule.
So tripod no problem....
