It's only expensive if you don't use it. Looks to be very versatile. I may look into this myself.

Thanks for sharing,

Tom

Your welcome vIZ

Thank you suze, nice review.

Thanx for sharing bobby, some nice accessories there. The ergo rest appears to be alot more versatile to me though.

I'm a big fan of Ultrapods. They wouldn't be of much use for a car mounting, but they are quite versatile. I carry a small one for my pocket camera and an Ultrapod II for my FZ10. They are extremely light and relatively inexpensive. I often grab a stick and use it as a monopod. I can usually find something to sit it on or attach it to. http://www.pedcopods.com/instru02.htm

Looks interesting. It is a bit pricy, but if you get what you need .......Bobby's stuff does look look somewhat primative in comparison.

Thanks for theequipment tip on the Ergorest. I ordered one and it's a pretty sturdy piece of equipment.

Here is a tip for you or anyone else that would like to order one and save some cost.
