Monopod vs Tripod

Product Information

People often ask “What’s better, a monopod or a tripod?”

The simple answer is that they both have their uses and so depending on the necessary task you should choose the equipment that’s correct for you.¬† For instance if you are photographing a motorsport event then due to the distance that spectators are placed from the racing you are going to need a telephoto lens.
