Re: How many Monopod users?

For five years now I use the Flowpod in both monopod and steady shot modes. Nothing has topped it yet.

Another vote for the Flowpod also, been using it for the past few months and love it. Also feels very well made.

Re: How many Monopod users?

I used a strait monopod for a while then became a true believer in the tripod with fluid head. I loved the run and gun nature of the tripod and actually ordered a 561BHDV-1 and when it cmae I wasn't impressed with the size (w/ 5dMk2 and battery grip it was a little overwhelmed). I returned it.
So now I use tripod and Blackbird for the most part.

Tried a Glidecam, didn't work for me.
Tried a shoulder mount, didn't work for me.

Got a Manfrotto 561B for my DSlR and Nx5u, and love it!

+1 for the monopod. It adds a lot of possibility to camera angle & movements while keeping it steady.
