rental of tripod while in Kauaii in March
I;m not sure if this is the right forum for this, but here goes.
we are traveling to Kauaii, HI, for 10 days in mid-March.
My husband has a Nikon D300s with a brand new Nikkor 18-300mm lens to try out. We would like to rent a a tripod there, rather than bring the one we have. With the luggage weight restrictions, we think it will be too heavy.
Does anyone know of a camere shop on the island that might rent us a tripod?
thanks very much

I've rented from http://www.lighthauscamera.com in the past, and had good experiences. They have locations on big island, Oahu and Maui but nothing on Kauai.
For Kauai try these (call before you leave home, I have no info on exactly what they have)
A/V Kauai 808-822-2804
Toka Media - 808-245-2535
PSAV - 808-826-7728
Or...find a photographer who lives there that is willing to let you use their tripod. I travel to Hawaii 4-5 times a year, I pack mine in my checked luggage.
Worst case, you could pack it up and ship it to where you're staying.
