    Default Whats a good Monopod?

    Looking for a good monopod to go with my CP5700.
    I am about 1.72m tall. What are some things you need to look out for in a monopod?

    Thanks!

    Off-topic question: My CP5700 has a 3:2 picture size. Is this the same as the 4R size? If so, does it mean that i can just send the photos straight from camera to developer without resizing?

    Thanks! Again!

    3:2 is the same ratio as 4R. It means that you don't need to crop yourpics when you send them for printing. There's no fixed size for 4R. Just like negatives, digital photos can be printed big (e.g. 8R) or small (e.g. 3R).

    Manfrotto 679 should be good enough. It's less than $70.....
