Long time lurker, first time poster. Maybe I've not been using the search feature effectively, but I can't find any threads that recommend specific monopods. I'm a rank amateur, reading a lot trying to get better. One thing I've concluded is that I need better support when I am out and about. I have a low-level tripod that gets the job done when I have time to use it, but considering that I am usually trying to squeeze in photos without annoying my family too much, I think I need to get a monopod. But I don't have a ton to spend. So with that background, any recommendations? On a related note, I've seen a lot of discussion of quick mounts for mono- and tri-pods, but when I Google the recommended products, they tend to be quite pricey. Any recommendations for quick release on a budget?
