By the time they made it air tight to hold helium, it would be more expensive than Carbon Fibre?
I did order the Tripod Adapter for my Monopod and Manfrotto makes a Monopod that has the Three Legs that fold up inside the Monopod...I think that will be great for hiking and shooting...

Hot air!!!???

That's why I'm sending my LT55 back - the carbon graphite, anodized
Allyouminiummm, with helium filled nano tubes was too expensive.

They offered a payment plan but I could afford the balloon note!!!

(Yes Clint, I, know, I'm full of hot air sometimes)

Will; I use a neoprene strap for my camera & binoculars. They are extremely comfortable, & don't slip if you are just carrying the camera over your shoulder.
