Hardly use a tripod these days unless going for long exposures, which I haven't done for ages.
When I used the 70D for every day shooting I gradually upgraded my glass to faster, and got used to hand holding, after using a heavy Manfrotto for landscapes. I find the IS in the M5 to be such that I can mostly get what I want hand held. However I do still have in mind some LE stuff I want to do. I'd be interested in what tripods people use.
I have a little gorillapod which is very handy too
Yeah I pretty much only need one for long exposures. I also want to be able to carry a tripod everywhere on holidays so I can have nice photos of my gf and I. We've tried asking people around but that's also risky safety wise and not to mention I've seen some truly horrible composition from them haha

I have an old Gitzo G0012 mk2
that I use occasionally.
Bought it originally to handle a 20D, I have used it at a push with the 1d3 when on holiday etc. so it copes with the M5 pretty well.
shown with legs at shortest (is around 510mm high with legs & center column extended:
Aren't Gitzo ones usually really high priced?
I'm getting either a manfrotto BeFree Carbon or Sirui T-024X for travel since they are around 700g to 1kg where as my current Manfrotto is 3.5kgs with the head! They also fit in a backpack where as the manfrotto is HUGE!
