I have a monopod and use it, but never considered how versatile a tool it really is until I read this excellent piece…
How to Hold a Monopod | Photography Mad.
Joe: Thanks for this piece on monopods. I wonder how good they might also serve as walking sticks.
Hi Tom – they are pretty good – I have a Gitzo monopod which cost €50, extends to 6 foot and has a good wide rubber pad on the base. Some monopods also have the option of a spiked foot – great for outdoors but watch out on wooden floors :). Things to make sure of – get one with a rubber or neoprene grip, and I like the wrist strap on mine for walking.
