Suggestions needed! I will be visiting Rome and Venice in August, walking, walking. Taking a medium format (Rollei), but I can't carry my enormous tripod. Does anyone have recommendations for a very compact, but useful, monopod or mini-tripod, (not expensive!) or, should I get used to hand-holding the camera? Secondly, I read on the tourism website that one may take 10 rolls of film per still camera (two cameras per person allowed). Is that strictly upheld? Buy film there? And, for walking around the city, going into museums, etc., will I need a smaller camera bag than the Lowepro mini trekker which I currently use? Is a backpack a good or bad idea? Thanks.
