HC-9,Manfrotto 560B and Sony SPK-HCC

Hello all, I have been enjoying a few new toys lately and wanted to give a mini review.I made the mistake of forgetting my camera bag on a recent trip and lost my HC-7.
Got the HC-9 last week and also decided it was time for a monopod. I bought the manfrotto 560B for the HC-9 and I have to say I love it. Great pans., tilting is smooth but a little more difficult because the 560 does not have a handle.
I think anyone who uses a small camcorder should get this monopod. Its very light and the swivel ball and feet work so smooth. I like it so much Im going to get the %^!B for my V1U.
We went out on the boat to do some surfing. I used the monopod on all the shots except for the sea lions, that was hand held (you can tell).
All of the water shots were taken using the sony SPK-HCC water housing. While sony says its for mostly the waters surface it is rates for 17 feet. Cant take it diving, but it-is perfect for surf vide. Light and well balanced. I highly recommend it for any near surface water activity

So, here is a short clip using these 3 tools. Hope you enjoy
