I'm looking for a Monopod. We already have a tripod but it's to clumsy for some of the stuff I want to do.
At this stage all I want it for is to fit my Canon SX720HS to, though I'll probably use it for my SLR at some stage.
My requirements are something to be as compact as possible when folded up and extend to about 60 inches when extended. One with tripod style feet would be a nice to have but not have to have unless the base can be removed and used as a small desk or table style tripod.
How important is it to have a fluid head? Initially I figured I could get what I wanted out of the monopod by fitting the camera directly to the monopod. Having watched a few videos I've started to wonder that a fluid head might be a good idea.
I don't think I need anything too flash (expensive) but want something that's not a cheap poorly made item and if a fluid head is pat of the package one that is smooth to operate.
Suggestions/opinions appreciated. Thanks
