A good tripod is a really wise investment and will last you years.
Here are some scenarios where a tripod is really useful.
Nighttime, sunsets and early mornings:
In a low light scenario where you need to drop the shutter speed, a tripod becomes essential. You risk having blurred shots when the shutter speed drops below the focal length of your lens. Also, when you have decided that you have created the perfect composition, the tripod will keep the camera in one place.
Macro: When you are getting in really close to something small, any small movements will be magnified, so the tripod becomes essential.
Architecture: Almost essential for composing shots for architecture, especially interiors. It will slow down your shots and make them better.
Compositing: You need a tripod for this, and most likely a Pan and Tilt head.
A remote trigger
