Hi all, new here. I enjoy shooting landscapes and was just thinking.  Most of my landscape photography shots are done during daylight and very rarely require longer exposures. So what happens 90% of the time is I go out, carrying my tripod and don't use it. I mean this is great, I get my exercise and save on a gym membership.

Just curious, do you always bring out your tripod or just when you know you'll be doing some longer exposed shots?

I always bring a tripod, even if it's just a travel tripod. Even on long hikes.

I always bring my tripod, and use it 99.9% of the time when taking a photograph.

95% of what I shoot is landscapes and 99% of my landscapes are shot on a tripod. I use a Gitzo 5 series, which is way too heavy but it is very stable. If you ever choose to enlarge your images to any decent size at all, a tripod is a necessity. I've enlarged full frame 36 MP images to 4'x6' and still had them be tack sharp.
