Monopod Head ?
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?
