I am looking at getting a monopod for my travels with my D800. I have been looking at the Gitzo GM3551 carbon fiber monopod. I am 6' 5" and this one extends to a taller length than the others I have looked at (192 cm). I already have a Gitzo GT2542T tripod that I really like. Two questions:

a) any experience with this monopod? or another that I should be looking at?

b) On my D800, I have a Nikonian sling which is attached to the camera body and the other end to the tripod plate attached to the camera. What do I need to put on the monopod to be able to attach the camera without having to remove the sling and plate? I am not sure it makes much sense to buy a ball head for the monopod. Thoughts?



Appreciate the help
