Using a tripod will make you a better photographer, especially with landscapes.

My Tamrac Cyberpack 8 has straps for carrying tripod/monopods. Look into that one.

Iím pretty sold on the idea of a Slingshot Backpack Ė but I havnít come across a suitable solution for carrying a tripod yet.
Ideally Iíd like something that Ďstrappedí snugly to my back, leaving my hands free, with a quick-release buckle. Over the shoulder type bags exert a life of their own, I donít want to have to keep juggling with it to keep it on my shoulder.

Of course I never actually use a tripod. In accordance with Sodís Law I only need to use a tripod when I havnít brought one with me. If I decide to bring one with me thereís never a call to use it. However, in order for me to continue never having to need to use one, I need to find a method to conveniently carry one.

Anyone have any suggestions?


Have you thought about downsizing? I got a tripod for Christmas that expands to about 4' and collapses to about 12" I think The Husband got it at Wal-Mart... it fits right into my camera bag (and I have a tiny camera bag) It was around 25 bucks or so...

Hope this helps! :D
