Monopod’s are used by most professional photographers. With it they can get stable shots without blurring. By avoiding the bulk of a tripod, photographers can move freely. Monopods are available for a large range of prices, even within the budget of amateur photogs.
Use - Cameras are attached to a universal plate at the top of the monopod. The basic principal is that the two legs of the photographer are used in conjunction with the one-legged monopod, essentially creating a human tripod. The photographer stands with his legs about a foot apart. He places the monopod about a foot away from his feet, creating a triangle shape on the ground. Now he's ready to shoot.
