I only use mine for long exposures, and a monopod for sports, but that's mainly to spare my arm muscles. ;)

If I need a higher shutter speed I just raise my ISO. Maybe if I shot wildlife, I'd heavily rely ona tripod....Same goes for studio work. Right now all the portrait work I do is on location, so I don't need/use a tripod.

I don't agree with Mister Rockwell a lot, but....digital kind of killed the tripod ;)

I use one if I need to use one. Mostly this is indoors at home when I don't want to use flash.
