yep, I use a tripod for 95% of my night shots. But until this month I've been using a decent fujifilm 10x optical zoom point and shoot. It is better than most point and shoots, but definitely no DSLR. I finally got a Nikon D40 with 18-55mm and 55-200mm Nikkor zoom lenses. It's so much better... and it's quite light compared to my dad's D70. So I just deleted my widescreen Kerry Park pic because its resolution was pretty poor. I lost the original. Oh well. I keep all my pictures now.
Right on. I am using a D70s and the weight is what I was after. I never shot hand hald if I don't have to, day or night. I guess the best thing to do as always is shoot and shoot and then shoot some more.
