Monopods are a great idea for using with photo equipment that needs to be kept steady. They are more compact than a tripod and althought they will not realistically stand alone, the added advantage of being able to hold a large zoom lens steady for a long time, is worth it's weight in gold. Having only one leg, it folds down much smaller than a standard tripod and can attach to the side, or even inside of a bag, ready to be used at a moments notice. They are available with or without heads, so the choice is yours and can extend to a suitable height depending on what requirements you have.

A monopod is in effect, a single legged tripod. Designed not to be left, it is a compact way of making sure your photographs are crisp and sharp. Some styles of monopods have feet, so that they can stand alone on a hard surface and some tripods have a monopod section incorporated in the design of the tripod, so it can be removed and used separately to the tripod. If wanting to take photographs while travelling, monopods take up less room, are lighter and more manageable. Some monopods will extend to nearly 2 meters in height and fold down to an amazing 41cm, so monopods are very versatile
