This seems a good Monopod

Have you seen this Monopod http://www.dvcreators.net/products/steadystick.html

Seems to be a good one.

I actually just got back from Henry's camera where I tried out the Tiffen Steady Stick. I was overall dissapointed. It took me and the employee a few minutes to properly mount the camera on the plate. I'm sure with practice (and knowledge) this would be fixed.

When it was mounted, I found it worked quite well at taking the weight off. It is most useful as a shoulder mount. I think my arms are probably too short for the device, as I had a difficult time with the crane like drops etc. I was probably expecting easier manouverability, but it's good at what it does if your arms are long enough.
