Carrying a tripod oversea is really tiring. For my last trip to Taiwan, I brought a cheapo but light tripod over instead of my Benro. In the end, due to the need to walk around alot, I left my tripod in the hotel. My back is already suffering aches from the weight of my camera(Canon 30D) alone. So for me, no tripod. Maybe a small sandbag to support the cam on uneven grounds.

thanks for your input, Melvin..

i am going Taiwan this april too. but only 2 of us including myself so that means i would need a tripod to take 'self portraits'... :sweatsm:
planning to shoot some night shots as well.. the pasar malam and stuffs..

Get a monopod or get a D300 :p..... shoot at high ISO to overcome the hand shake in low light condition or get a fast lens :)

Like many here, I would bring my tripod for travel, but end up left in the hotel, even though mine is the lighter Carbon Fibre type :(

My Manfrotto and ball head setup is pretty heavy at about 2.3kg, but if I need to take night scene die die I will bring it out and lug around from morning till night as once I leave the hotel I will not return till late night and I spent the whole day on foot. I usually carry a sling bag with the tripod hanging by the side of the bag, poking one of the legs into the shoulder strap,clamping it in place with the other 2 legs. It abit tiring but I sort of get use to it liao :bsmilie:

go for a slik tripod
cheap, light and useful
doesn't attract unwanted attention and quick setup
besides, ur load is abt a kg, no issue.
