    I will spend two weeks in driving through parts of Italy, Austria and Germany and this will be the last time I visit due to funds. I would like to take some quality landscape and city photos (not just snapshots) with my Nikon D80. My intent is to manipulate them later in PS or Gimp (I still need to choose a program and learn it). Can I get some feedback from you regarding my plan to:

    1) use my Nikon 35-70mm 1: 2.8 lens and neutral density filter
    2) use mini tripod
    3) shoot on Raw + Jpeg mode, manual focus

    Thanks

    Andre

    It sounds as if you don't want to carry a lot of equipment, which is a good thing if your traveling for fun.

    your plan sounds fine , except, i would worry about a mini tripod, just what kind of mini tripod. that is a heavy lens and with the camera body you need something stable for a tripod.

    tripods, airplanes and travel are always a challenge. can you borrow a carbon fiber tripod from someone, this will decrease the weight and may help with the stability.
