    Lawsyd, I Use a Carbon Fibre Feisol one, there are a wide range of makes to choose from, as said items like Manfrotto etc are very very good, topped off with a decent head and they are invaluable, but buy a decent one and it will last you for life. The Manfrotto that Nat has originally could have a warranty as long as 10 years, says it all really.
    You can also get belt holsters to put them in, if anything I find that the biggest problem with them at shows etc, it is where to put it when not in use... Though camera bags often have holders in them......
    My 500mm is ok as that stays clamped to it and rests over a shoulder with the monopod in my hand balancing it..... If that makes sense.

    Sorry about the name gaff, damn auto spell corrector strikes again..

    Forgot to add when buying, think about what you are going use it for both now and possibly in the future, and work out the weight capacity you need when choosing.

    Weight will be an important factor. In May, the monopod has to take it's chances along with clothes for 2 weeks in Africa (so it needs to be lightweight for airline baggage allowance purposes); then it still has to be lightweight on my return for walking the hills & fells of Northern England.

    PS - Don't worry about the name - I've been called an awful lot worse, in the last few days, on another photographic forum.

    I have posted some low light pics on the people's thread,where the monopod was invaluable. Don't know how I managed all these years,without one.
    It is actually a "must have accessory".
