Hello,

Everyone has an opinion on this. Nine days in Italy, tripod no tripod? Venice, Florence, Rome.

I am already aware of the museums and restrictions, but we have a bike in Chianti wine country and a trip to Murano. These are places for landscapes. Is it worth taking the tripod or stick with my monopod. I am concerned with longer exposures in morning, evening and night.

I would take a small light one if i were you, you will get some great night city shots in Italy! Enjoy - in fact i am off on a trip soon and definitely taking my tri-pod.

PS: mostly inside buildings they have more of a problem with you using a flash than small tri-pod

Mine is fairly light and fits immovable on the side of my Lowepro 15L Sport. i believe I will take it for the night shots. The crowds should be a lot smaller at night anyway. I am still open to other recommendatios. Thanks very much for you help Johann.

Cheer!

You should be fine just ask them if its fine for you to use a tripod talk to them nicely about it and they might let you do it. Like on one of Karl's DVD's when he shoots in a church with his camera on a tripod.

I'd bring a tripod with me if i was going somewhere wonderful :)

Regards,
Simon

Tripod was worth its weight in gold. I do not regret lugging it all over Italy. Thanks! I will upload some photos when I finish post processing them.

Cheers,
Chris
