    I've never even tried to use a tripod in DC, nor have I used my RB67 there, but I had no trouble with a Fuji medium-format rangefinder on several trips in the past. I think I could probably pull out the RB if I was using it handheld with the waist-level finder.

    Tripods in public places are generally no big deal, with certain exceptions (the Lincoln Memorial, the grounds of the US Capitol Building, Union Station). I've had pretty good luck shooting on and around the Mall on a tripod. This will also in part depend on the security thug/professional you run into at the time.

    Many years ago (pre-Bush), our family was in DC for a short vacation. I had photographed a spiral staircase on an earlier visit and wanted to make another negative. I thought I knew which building it was in, and when I asked guard, not only did he let me in with my camera equipment, and stopped the pedestrian traffic in the building for the time required to get the image.

    Ya never know what the reaction will be - - -
