Hi all,

I was wondering is monopod good enough to use for night shots, like taking long exp or night landscape shots? Thanks in advance :D

Cheers,
Henry

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.

Get the carbon fibre tripods....they are lighter. Monopods have limited use esp for long exposures.

Isn't there a tripod, where the centre column could be removed and used as a monopod? :dunno:

hmm....idea ah!! hehehe
dont know you understand what i'm talking about or not... lemme try to explain....

like the corner of a railing? lean into the monopod (not that hard to break it) into the corner. tada. :D

but the monopod may still "roll" because of its round shaft... :p

Solution: Bring a roll of duct-tape or gaffer tape! :D

Tot i saw a tripod in which the centre column and one of the legs can be joined to form a monopod whwn required.

agree that tripod can always convert to monopod after soem DIY work. so just buy a tripod will do
