Some places have rules about tripods, but would they allow monopods? I've been to several places that have standing orders to shoot on sight if they see a photag with a tripod and in most cases I can understand. Do any of you have an issue bringing a mono pod to a public place like a museum without getting crap? If so........how about the nice mono pods with the fold down feet at the bottom? Today I tried to shoot an indoor butterfly garden and the lighting was horrible! If I shot at 2.8 with a high ISO it was okay....not great but when I opened it up I got operator error----motion in my images. I've had this a few times in the past and was wondering if the no tripod places are cool with mono pods.
