Ok guys, this is kind of an embarrassing question to ask since I've lived here for 30 years :embrass:. Is it OK to set up a tripod along orchard road to take pics? I'll be out with the family and don't feel like getting chatted up by the men in blue.

TIA!

It's quite common to see photography enthusiasts setting up tripods along orchard road these days. So, just set your mind at ease and go ahead. ;)

Personally, for my casual shots along orchard road, I'll just use ISO1600 (or 3200) on the 20D. Too lazy to bring along a bulky and heavy tripod.

I don't think any MIB will approach you, many of us do that and there's nothing wrong. :think: Unless you're too bored and play "Police & Thief" then, start to run away. ;p

I just went to shoot Xmas lightings yesterday evening with my Manfrotto 055Pro and camera. In fact, i walked the whole Orchard road with my tripod+cam fully extended.

No worries abt being stopped by MIB.
