monopods?

I have a tripod for my camera but am looking to get a monopod. Following people around with a tripod is a little ridiculous and i have a photoshoot this weekend for a couple at a fair. I know i'm going to want some long exposures to catch the fair lights so i want to get a monopod this week. Does anyone have one that they like? I'm not looking to spend a whole lot but i want something good. TIA!

I got this one for DH for his camcorder:

turns out he likes my tripod better, but I use this one sometimes at soccer games. It's light and has a shoulder strap and is pretty darn easy to lug around. small enough to fit in the bag with my tripod as well.

HTH!

I would envy anyone who can steady a monopod during a long-exposure shot!

I'll correct....long exposure as in like 1/20-1 second max. I don't plan on doing 30 second exposures with it or anything Smile
