Sigh. I bought a really nice, lightweight travel tripod (Gitzo). I'm heading to Europe with my Mom for 16 nights and I'm finding I'm really running out of room with TWO suitcases (one 18 inch carryon, one 22 inch...). Even though I bought this specifically for traveling, I'm debating if I should take it on this trip. I'll be with my Mom, I definitely won't be carrying it during the daytime/sightseeing and if anything I'd just take it out on the occasional evening. We will be in the Alps - so Munich will be the largest city on the entire trip. It would be nice to have great sunset shots though... I've yet to take a tripod on a trip (other than my little tabletop one...). Will I regret it, do you think?
