Best monopod/walking stick w/ ball-head?
Jul 23, 2011

I right now have a Targus monopod with the walking stick point I got for $10, but I am finding for my uses I need more flexability. So, I been doing a search for a monopod with a ball head, but I am not sure what to get as I am getting lot of mix info.

I'd rather not go over $30, but all I want is a monopod with a ball-head that I could use during hikes(I guess it needs the rubber foot to spin to reveal the point) that isn't overly heavy. Would a ball head on the feet area work in a similar way, or no? I noticed on Amazon that Canon may have a model that might fit my needs, but I am not sure of the durability/quality(I have had good luck with canon products in the past; so, this shouldn't be that much of a difference?) or weight of it. Any other suggestions? Thanks.
