Re: Who here uses a monopod?

I'm using monopods (an old Gitzo Safari and Gitzo GM5561T Mountaineer) a lot for macro photography. Tripods are useful early in the morning when insects are very slow and perching low on plants. During daytime insects frequently move and then a monopod is more useful - it allows me to change positions quickly. However, monopods have some limitations. Depending on the lens in use and your physical predispositions, you cannot use times longer than 1/10 to 1/50 sec.
