Howdy All,

Do you guys think its necessary to take a tripod on trips? I like taking night pictures, and they sometimes turn out ok without a tripod. but does it look odd taking out a tripod for the tiny P&S? do you guys with P&S take tripods with you?

For the night pictures you're fond of, yes you need to bring a tripod.

bring a small tripod like a gorillapod or a zipshot. those should fit into a small bag easily.

I jsut got a tripod for travel yesterday. It's a sirui t05. Haven't used it yet, but this sucker is small (under 11 inches when folded down), and light.

Bought my wife a gorrilla pod. She loves it.

Honestly, if you have to ask whether or not you need a tripod for night photography... you have some more to learn! There's a world of photography around slow shutter speeds and night time photography. If you're into that, then a tripod is a must.

If you like your current photos now at night, then perhaps you'll be fine without the tripod. Too bad you don't have a hotshoe on the S100, otherwise I'd recommend a flash over a tripod.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.
