[quote=Dakewl;243566]I wonder what use it has, I mean: I usually shoot at 1/125 or even 1/250 when using strobes, umbrellas and so on. I only use when shooting with available light. So why should I use a tripod? Am I missing something?
Keep in mind the when shooting in a studio with studio strobes that the subject will be frozen by the speed of the strobes (usually in excess of 1/1000th of second). So whether you shoot at 1/125 or 1/250 is irrelevant. The only time shutter speed will make any difference in this kind of shooting is if you "drag" the shutter to include the effect of incident light in the scene.
But I use a tripod often just to maintain a constant camera position (for example), or to hold the camera and a large lens (like a 70-200 f2.8 that weights more than the camera). It is also nice when doing fixed framing type of shots. You exactly frame a scene and the model moves around inside the scene but other wise you want the overall scene constant.
