Default I don't really like it but it Works

A Monopod for low light nature photography
E-520 With 70-300 lense

Here is a Robin between 2 buildings near near sunset
300mm ISO 800 F 8.0 Shutter 1/25

No way could I do that at 300 mm and shutter 1/25 before

You did good. But while you're doing the arithmetic you have to figure the lens at 600mm. So you proved the worth of a monopod quite nicely..

While a monopod won't replace a tripod, it sure can help. As you've shown here. And really, a monopod isn't a big deal, it's small, may not need any set-up and it's light. Quick to grab and use.
