"RE: Mono pod"

Think of a mono pod as an aid to hand held shooting rather than as a poor substitute for a tripod. It allows me to use lower shutter speeds just as VR would. I have several legacy lenses but none with VR. Also a sufficiently robust mono pod doubles as a waking staff.
I used one on a whale watching boat by shortening it and placing the end in a fanny pack worn in front like a flag bearer thus dampening the engine vibrations with my body. I was able to use a 300mm f/4 AFS with 1.7 TC with good success.
