i have a 40d (plan to grip soon) with a 100-400L. i would like to get a mono pod with a ball/swivel to be able to set up the camera to take vertical pictures if needed. what do you guys use/recommend? i don't want to give a budget, since i really don't have one...i don't like setting a budget because sometimes for 15-20 dollars more, you can get a much better product. not that i blame anyone, but sometimes people dont want to spend the extra money. with that being said, i also dont want to see $300.00 monodpods and heads. thanks.
