Wonder is any of these from Gander Mountain could be adapted for camera work?

Just thinking about these - the bipod might be morestable than a monopod if you have a heavy lens on your camera, but it still wouldn't be as good as a tripod. Not sure it would offer that much extra in terms of f-stops when compared to a monopod, but it might be easier to handle something heavy.

I am faced with the same question Roy, I am vacillating between making a wooden box that might never get finished and going to the plumber/drainage supplies to buy a length of sewer pipe with screw caps.
