| p.1 #5 · Need cheap sturdy tripod for still photography |
You might want to keep in mind that TSA agents act differently at different airports. While some may let you carry on a tripod strapped to a camera bag, others may refuse to let you board the plane with it. If you check the TSA website, it specifically states tripods are not banned but again, it depends on the agents working at that time.
I do one of two things, for a smaller tripod, if it fits inside my carryon bag, I place it inside the bag out of site. Never had a problem with this before. For my larger gitzo, I lock it inside of my checked luggage.
While I've never had a problem at TSA, I've seen on several occasions where they wouldn't allow a tripod to be carried on a plane and turned it away. I always keep a printed copy of their website page with me when I bring it as a carryon just in case.
