Absolutely, your shooting style should be the driver in whether you need camera support. I'm primarily a landscape shooter, for me aperture is everything and low light is the normal rather than the exception. In those situations, to hand hold, I'd have to comprise my aperture selection to ensure I'm able to keep the camera sufficiently still. The moment I have to choose an aperture based on my ability to hold the camera vs what the scene requires, I've given up artistic control; i.e. I'm less creative. Because of how I shoot, I rarely take a serious shot without my Gitzo.

Cheers
