Monopod or Tripod?
I've been looking into getting a new tripod for a while now and am a little confused. I've always thought that if you wanted to stabilize your camera, or do smooth pan/tilts then you needed a good tripod. But what about a monopod. When I say monopod I don't mean the commercial kind. I mean what if you mounted a decent tripod head on something like this, with a little help from a hardware store. Couldn't you get the exact same effect as having a tripod for a fraction of the price?
