Are there any super lightweight monopods you might recommend for concert photography? It’s typically difficult light to be working with at most venues and I imagine using a monopod could produce some great images
Hi Spencer, off the top of my head no but have a look at the Gitzo or Manfrotto carbon fibre range.
I started using a monopod while I was shooting baseball. A really helpful piece of equipment which made those long doubleheader days a lot more comfortable.
Now, as an older shooter, I find the monopod is helpful even shooting landscape. Image stabilization is fine, but I prefer leaving it “off” (I’m shooting with an older Oly with the I.S. in the body).
The monopod lets me shoot a little slower when I want a higher F setting.
Thanks, again, for this great program.
