    Smile Tripod for Canon EOS 7D

    So due to illness and medication I will often get the shakes in my arms and hands that I have no control over and would normally make taking photos impossible but im hoping with the help of a tripod and some smarts I can still do it.

    Any suggestions?

    I really want to try make this work

    Can't help you with tripods, but in this case you'd best be looking for a lens with OS, IS, or VR,
    as discussed in your thread on lenses.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    I moved some posts from here to the lens thread: http://www.ausphotography.net.au/for...64#post1345964

    We'll keep this for tripods - which I know little of

    TL88, you may not be able to capture the rabbit hopping into the bush but there are many aspects of photography that you can continue to explore. If a tripod is a minimum so be it. You may be able to get away with a monopod & cable release. I have a Benro B1, it is a lightweight carbon tripod that has a detachable monopod leg. Very easy to use... Good luck with it all.

    ^ yes, I was going to suggest a monopod in addition to a tripod. They would both be useful for different types of photos.
    What sort of tripod? I have a really heavy steady one. But I like taking photos of birds. Tripod is useless for that 'cause after carrying it for 5 minutes I fall over with exhausted.
    It's really good for still life, portraits, lightning, whatever can be taken from a static position though. So it all depends on what you plan to use the tripod for.
    All the best.

    Definitely a cable release too. Good on you for not giving up and exploring a work around
