I've been to places where you can't use a flash. Never got told I mustn't bring a tripod lol
Museums, concerts, etc... Lots of places forbid tripods - it's a liability thing, the legs stick out, and another patron could trip and sue the venue.
true, although thought it was a sad sign of our sue happy nation. I mean they even ban monopods. Is that really gonna trip you anymore than someone would end up tripping over someone else's legs? Monopods I suspect might be banned more since they seem more club-like and they prob don't want that at sporting venues/clubs/concerts/etc.
