Looking at a monopod, any suggestions?
I just got the Giottos P-Pod today. Thing is huge and very sturdy. The 3 screw in legs are shit though, I'll probably never use them. The tilt swivel head that comes with it isn't half bad either.
I'd give you a link if I wasn't lazy.
Most people buy the bogen $50 monopod and put on the 2021 (I think that's the number I can't remember) tilt swivel head on it.
get the bogen with the tilt swivel head... I have the gitzo with the tilt swivel head but that's just for the compactness on my motorcycle and i actually like the compression locks.
my combo is like $150 but the $80-90 bogen is just as good
I use a Gitzo G1568 carbon fiber monopod with a Bogen 3232 head.
all the riceboys at the shows envy me
I didn't like the gitzo cf monopod, didn't seem sturdy enough to beat around... the aluminum gitzo is just great though and has a screw off end for a spike which the mini cf doesn't have.
