Monopods In this short video Karl demonstrates the usefulness of camera monopods and tripods. What do you think about monopods – do you use them and how do you think they compare to the traditional tripod? Comments November 17, 2017 Log in to Reply Bob Naegele I started using a monopod while I was shooting baseball. A really helpful piece of equipment which made those long doubleheader days a lot more comfortable. Now, as an older shooter, I find the monopod is helpful even shooting landscape. Image stabilization is fine, but I prefer leaving it “off” (I’m shooting with an older Oly with the I.S. in the body). The monopod lets me shoot a little slower when I want a higher F setting. Thanks, again, for this great program. Comments You must be logged in to leave a comment.
