Wow I will be the first one in this post. Yes, Because of my old age, My hands and my legs are not strong as the young man 40 years ago, I must use some support equipmen, when/ where that I can not use Tripods or monopod.
Wouldn't you think this thing is harder to use than a monopod? Wouldn't it take up too much room in your bag?
Dear my friend, sunnyVan.
No, On the air trip, I put all equipment, Heavy weight but Cheap in to my checked Baggage, I love this one, Because both the camera and the supporter on my neck and my hand all the times---Ready in a second to shoot candid Photos far away, Yes, Monopod is Lighter, But , will take 1 minutes to set up, from the storage , to total expansion, Plus Some place like in the museum, both USA and Greece, Plus on the Side walk of the public street in the big city---- No Tripods or Monopod allow( for Public Sefety).
Nice to talk to you, Good night.
