View Full Version : Monopods

Any recomendations for a monopod for sports pics, fairly high, fattish rubber foot so as not to sink in snow and quick release head, needs to be able to swivel from side to side very quickly and pack down to carry round a mountain side.

YEAH ! I have one, it has a large "flower" 1" from the bottom FATFOOT to stop sinking into snow or mud :) with a Giotta tilt head - which is great for the 50-200 and I am just trying it with the 100-500 BIGMA ! Total height us 2m with 2 sections of height adjustment!

The newer Giotto series 2 heads (for example the MH 1312-652 series 2), have a third button which allows horizontal movement only so might fit the bill for you David. Comes with an adaptor to fit both thread sizes as well.
