I am a relatively new Nikonian and DSLR user - got a D7000 last April and learning how to use it - it's a lot to learn!
I did buy a Manfrotto 055XB tripod with a Markins Q20 head with the help of this forum.
I do mostly travel pics(on cruises)and am thinking a monopod may be more practical camera support than the tripod.
I am confused on what monopod head to buy that will accomodate my D7000 with Kirk L bracket and my largest lens is a Nikon 55-300mm - so total weight is about 3 lbs. I want to go "budget" on the monopod and head so not considering a Markins.
Any suggesting on a monopod head would be most appreciated.
Thanks,
Chuck
