    How effective is a monopod vs a tripod vs handheld?

    i bought that one, tehn took it mack 2 hours later. I have the same design on my tripod (neotec 458b) and it just can't hold a significant amount of weight. If you ever plan to use a heavy lens, it just won't work. I tried a 400 2.8 on it and it started to bend.


    i got some gitzo instead, better student discount, so it was like 10 bucks more.
