Monopod Head ?
Mar 4, 2013

I am about to buy my first monopod.  I am leaning toward the carbon fiber Sirui, although I am still open to suggestions.

Do I need a monopod head?

Some have suggested attaching the monopod directly to the lens collar.  I have also heard conflicting advice on ball-heads for monopods.  I do have the Manfrotto 496 head on my tripod, so I guess it makes sense to stick with the same brand quick-release plate.  But, I don't know.  Is there a benefit to attaching a monopod head if shooting sports?
