Cheap, portable monopods?
Can't take my DSLR gear with me on a trip, so I'm going to get a NEX-3N. Know any cheap (~<$50) but ultra-portable monopods? It would preferably hold the camera at eye-level (at least 5 feet) and collapse to under 18", so I could easily attach it to a small backpack.
Never used a monopod before, but I figure you can't go terribly wrong--especially with a teeny tiny camera like a Sony NEX. I wanted to take a few videos, more to record than for artistic purposes. I just want something to reduce camera shake. Thanks!
