Does anyone know if we're allowed to use tripods or monopods, anything like that at disney?
Has anyone tried?
I just worry about carting it around, setting it up, people tripping over
Hey Disfan, I have used my mini backpacking tripod at Disney. They are pretty stable, in my case I can velcro it around a post, railing or the like, and it fits in the camera bag or in my case fanny pack. They are usually under $20 USD. Gorillapod has bendable legs that can wrap around the same things and you can get them online.
I've used my mini-tripod at WDW a couple of times. But I really dislike carrying it around the parks. My camera bag is tiny--just holds my camera and a spare memory card and spare batteries. And my purse already is pared down as much as possible, so I don't want the additional weight in there.
Just remember, if you take it, you carry it!
Really there is not much to drag around....this folds up to the size of a pair of reading glasses and weighs just about as much. You could do time exposures with it...fairly steady.Originally Posted by Skywatcher, post: 52392
This is the exact one I have:
Ooooh! Much nicer than mine! Mine is old and kind of heavy--probably at least one pound. Works well around here, but wouldn't want to carry it in the parks!
