I am not sure that this is the correct section but there doesn't seem to one specifically for general equipment discussion so here goes
I have a love hate relationship with tripods. I almost have a complex about them feeling that I SHOULD use one all the time but also feeling SO restricted when doing so.
I always remember a quote from , I think, one of the early 35mm Leica users that the raison d'etre of 35mm ius its flexibility and the fact it alows mobility and therefore a deep exploration of a subject.
Since I equate my dslr to a 35 mm camera I feel the above philosophy applies equally to digital.
Just wondered what others feel about tripod use, especially when SSS is so good and useful for hand-held use.
