I was wondering is monopod good enough to use for night shots, like taking long exp or night landscape shots? Thanks in advance
No ... dun think it can support for long exposure
try a light weight tripod like SLIK SPRINT PRO
Can always buy a very light tripot and sometimes used it as a monopod if you want speed and mobility. I find monopod uses limited.

Isn't there a tripod, where the centre column could be removed and used as a monopod?
or just use a monopod, lean it into a triangulated corner, tada! steady one...
dont know you understand what i'm talking about or not... lemme try to explain....Originally Posted by ammox77
like the corner of a railing? lean into the monopod (not that hard to break it) into the corner. tada.
but the monopod may still "roll" because of its round shaft...
Solution: Bring a roll of duct-tape or gaffer tape!Originally Posted by sehsuan
Use a bean bag instead. Just find soemthing to support it onto.
I guess Slik sprint pro should be not problem to support ur 10D w/o grip and 28-105mm if you use a better ballhead.Originally Posted by ammox77
Tot i saw a tripod in which the centre column and one of the legs can be joined to form a monopod whwn required.
Think it's made by Kaiser
Not for heavy stuff though
