    Monopod for DSLR any recommendations

    Have been looking at a monopod for use on a Canon 600d with reasonably big lens 400mm.
    Do you use one.
    Best mount quick release,can you fit it in a day bag etc.

    You can get walking poles with a thread on top to use as a monopod, might be worth a shot?

    I have a tripod with a leg that screws off to use as a monopod, it does help steadying up with a long lens (best if the lens has its own mount) - though if the light isn't good enough for fast shutter speeds you're still relying on your subject staying still as well.

    Ended up buying a BENRO IT15 folds up small,quick release mount and can use one leg as a monopod.
    I think it will do the job.
    I had to spend the day in Hamilton getting bike serviced and wandered into camera shop.
    Got talking and told him what I was after.
    Does help going to specialist shops where the staff know what you want and what they are talking about.
