Hi, i am buying my first monopod for video taking purpose for school hall stage performance.
My Setup will be a FF body with a 24-70 or 70-200 lens.

I have been looking around and find this monopod quite interesting.

Do you think this is over-kill for my applications?
I am not likely to use it often as well.
Any "good enough" suggestion?

Thanks.

If the 561BHDV-1 is too expensive for you, then just get a regular monopod.

The 561BHDV-1 is the de-facto standard for basic DSLR video stabilisation.
