Erm, because it doesn't? The monopod helps you in those two situations, maybe in one or two obscure ways I can't think of at the moment. Okay in all seriousness the monopod makes a better weapon to defend yourself with. But it just doesn't do anything beyond that.hmm why do u say that it will not replace a tripod apart from the 2 situations that u mentioned?
Not sure if you have a fundamental misconception of what a monopod is or not but...hmm why do u say that it will not replace a tripod apart from the 2 situations that u mentioned?
pls correct me if i'm wrong , i saw a monopod with "legs" extendedNot sure if you have a fundamental misconception of what a monopod is or not but...
A monopod is NOT a tripod with 1 leg. A monopod cannot stand on its own and requires a photographer to hold it steady. The only thing it stops is up-down movement and if the photographer is not steady enough, it will still sway from side to side resulting in VERY blur photos especially when you are shooting with long shutter times.
Since u are in a dilemma on which to get why not get this M1004 from Sirui which is a tripod with a option to remove one of the legs and double up as a monopod..currently looking at the option of getting either a monopod or tripod
and it seems to me that a monopod is slightly lighter than most tripod.
just wondering whether is there any pro and cons using a monopod or tripod
