i take mostly street/candid shots, and a bit of landscapes once in a while. i already have a tripod, but it's of very low quality. some flimsy crap. i'm thinking a mono would be more portable and faster to set up for street/candid shots. but ofcourse it can't beat the sturdyness of the tripod. pls do advise on what make and model to get. just need a mid-level model. my gear is a 400D, with kit lens and a 700-300 zoom lens. would appreciate yout input.
