What should I get next for my camera? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
suit yourself. a monopod is just extra junk to carry if you are shooting for that long. even when working 15 hours days carrying 40-50 Lbs of camera gear for TV productions i am barely tired at the end of the day and i promise im overweight and not in great shape. so your DSLR and 70-200 f4 is like taking a vacation for me haha tongue.gif

Monopod is useful if you have short arms or if you record a lot of video.
Or if you mount a flash onto the monopod so you can easily hold the flash to where you want.

a cheap shoulder rig helps miles more than a monopod for video. trust me. monopod and video might work at first but its not as effective. its great if you are lazy and dont like tripods

Flash brackets are much more portable than a monopod, and for serious strobing you'll be mounting them on stands/tripods anyway.

Well, I think i found out what i'm gonna get, Worked out a dead on Craigslist about picking up a Tamron 75mm-300mm lens as well as a Canon 50mm 1.8 for $100 for both, the Tamron is a cheap lens, but 2 lens's for the price of one can't be beat.

And here is a picture of my DIY softbox, basically some card board, duck tape, and old lamp, and a trash bag.



and how it looks ( little halo guy I found randomly on my porch the other day )
