Monopods

I took the bottom part of an adjustable walking cane,the ones with 4 small legs, which I bought at a yard sale for almost nothing. I used the top half of my monopod and the bottom part of the walking cane. The best I remember it's diameter was a little smaller than my monopod, so I made two plastic shems from a plastic bottle. It works great. I can also adjust the height. I find it also helps stability a lot. Also I find the weight of the feet helps as a Hand held stableizer. Another plus, I can use it as hiking staff, without camera attached, of course. As tempting as it may be I would never use it as a stand alone pod.

I thought this might be something yuo might want to try.

Harold and Bob,

These are great ideas. That is why I keep coming back to this forum. There are many folks with lots of great ideas. I will try your suggestions and see what works best.

Harold - by "one of those right angle metal corner units" you mean the units that you can use to hang shelf on? Like a right angle bracket? or is it something that you can buy from places like B&H.

Regards,
Frank

Hi Frank,

Yes, the right angle bracket type. Can be as big or small as you want. The bigger one gives more weight and more to set your foot on.
