I have a Velbon Sherpa 250R tripod but I find it quite heavy to carry around with all my camera gear as well. We have planned a cruise and time in Singapore in January, so I am looking for something that is lighter in weight and more versatile.
Has anyone used a monopod or does anyone have a suggestion as what to buy.
I have a Canon 500D with a 70-200mm ef 1.4 L zoom lens and have found I just can't keep it steady enough to stop that camera shake. I am looking at buying a new macro lens this year so something that would help with both lenses would be great.
Any help much appreciated.
