Bogen-Manfrotto Self-Standing Pro Silver Monopod
Bogen-Manfrotto Self-Standing Pro Silver Monopod, Model 682 <- the final word in cost-effective monopods.
Why argue with success. This baby is not a tripod, but it is getting close. I just wound up having to shoot "bare handed" at the Museum of Science and Industry, because they "banned" tripod shooting. I was not a happy camper... to say the least, after paying parking, admission and then being told... no tripods :mad:
The shots had to be under ambient lighting conditions and this was as awkward as you might imagine.
Had I had this little beauty, the problems would have been solved.
Anyway, at around $90.00, it has the stand feet on it for those "emergency" issues where quiver and shake are present (slow shutter) and you do not want to even think about touching your tool.
Give it a look... here's the link:
