I'm looking for a monopod for my Fuji s5200.Can someone click on the link below and tell me ifthats a good brand? I'm new to all this and I need a monopod to help me take pictures at construction sites.

Also, can someone recomend me a mid grade tripod. It will be used with the same type of camera (Fuji s5200). I'm not concerned about the weight of the tripod.

Any advice will be greatly apreciated!

Thank you.

How about both in one?

It's center column works as separate monopod.

Thanks for your reply E.T. That type of tripod/monopod its more of what I need. Now, I couldnt find anywhere about the heigth of the monopod. Would it be the same as the tripod when fully extended? I also looked at the 3430 model. What benefits would I get with having a replaceble head? Sorry about the n00bish question, but if having a replaceble head is something that I might use in the future I rather get the better of the 2 models now.

Once again thank you for your input.

At least in case of 3430 "monopod" actually extends longer than tripod... I guess it should be same with 2800.

Repleaceable head gives possibility for using ball heads which are loved by soem people because they allow adjustment in all directions with just one locking handle.

Here's some more info:

I might as well get the 3430. Its a few dollar$$ more but, like it was mentioned, the head is replaceble.


Thank you once again for your input E.T.

I would like to thank you again E.T. for your suggestions! I ordered the Cullman 3430 on Tuesday and it got delivered today. I'm extremely pleased with it. Its well built, really stable, a snap to go from tripod to monopod, etc. Anyways, I just wanted to thank you!:-D
