Bro, just came back form there 2 weeks back, the wind is damn strong at night..
You noe i shot on tripod for 80% of my pics and i still end up getting blurred shots..:bsmilie:
Though only minority of it... Pls bring a tripod (which i did) and or u will regret it..
You can see in my flickr for ur reference.. (had only just started to process it..:sweat
Without much of a doubt for long exposure and for ease of use with blackcard and cable release, tripod is crucial for night photography.. HTH
Hw rigt u r bro. Thats goes abt implying hw critical it is to bring tripod on long vacations.
None of my wife's d5000 las vegas shots is usable..She shot handheld of cos. Even though on Monopod, the steadiest hands one might have will not give u that "perfect" shot still...
