Hi

Any suggestion for a lightweight monopod, good for travel, mainly for use with a D90 plus 17-55 or 18-200 lens attached ?

Thanks in advance

You need monopod with the 17-55 and 18-200?

I thought people use monopods for the fast long telephoto lenses.

Anyway, I suggest going into stores like TK photo, Cathay and OP to try them out.

For long exposures, you really should use a tripod.

Was thinking of using the monopod to steady my hands as I am 63 and hands
getting bit shaky ?

I already have a hand-strap, any other suggestions perhaps ?

I have the same situation bro. I brought it along but never use it. Monopole is not flexible to adjust higher and lower to take photo. By the time finishing the adjustment to Ball header degree, height of the pole the object already gone.

I have the similar problem and have not find out the solution. one thing I did is to stick to M4/3 camera for the light weight and hope the inner camera stabilizer works well.:(

If you got shaky hands, better to get a tripod instead..
coz monopod still need support from you to stabilize
