Kinda of new here but have been lurking for a while. We're heading out to Barbados for vacation this week. Just wondering a about a few things. First off I have a d5000 with 18-200mm VR nikon. Should I bring a tripod? I'm more then likely never going back there and would like some really nice captures but I don't really want to lug to much stuff around. Can it go in carry on or checked baggage? I'm Bringing a hoya UV and circular polarizer. But was kinda of worried about the brightness of the island would a ND filter be a good addition also? Any tips tricks would be appreciated.
