Help me select a monopod, please.
Jun 2, 2009

I keep coming to all of you for help and you haven't disappointed me, yet.

I have purchased an A700 (which is terrific) and a SAL 70-300G lens (about 4 lbs total). I will probably need a monopod to help with stabilization. I do have a Sony tripod, and a short Velbon tripod. I will be going to Alaska in a couple of months and will be doing some "excursions" and I think a tripod would be too complicated to set up to try to get a quick shot of a whale tail (fluke) or a bear.

I'm thinking a monopod would be more in order here. I would like one that collapses to about 15 - 20" (do they go that small?). I am planning to spend around $100 - $200. What type would you recommend?
