So, here I am in Switzerland - the most picturesque, photogenic place that I have ever been. Iím armed with my 40d, neutral density filter, infrared filter, etc, etc, etc and MY TRIPOD IS BROKEN!!!!!!!I could have died when it happened. Weíre considering going to the Aletsch Glacier tomorrow but Iím gutted that I wonít be able to photograph it properly.

So Iíve come up with plan B: buy a new one. A little challenging, however, when one is in a foreign country. Which turns me to my fellow DPC-ers.

Is anyone familiar with a photography store in Switzerland from which I could buy a decent tripod? I donít want to spend a huge amount of money, and Iím a little concerned about trapsing around with a hugely heavy tripod. Just looking for a solid tripod that will serve me well for the next 6weeks. Does anyone know a store that I could go to? We're currently staying in Visp, which is near Sion, Brig, Zermatt

By the way, could you post replies this thread rather than my email address via PM as that will send emails to my work - and, happily, Iím not there :) :) :) :)

Hi Matt,

I feel for you in such a situation and while I know *nothing* about Switzerland, I did do a google search for camera stores near Visp, Switzerland and a few promising hits were returned. Try it out if you can't get a local to give you the low down!
