    You know, if you were to let go of this, the Go-Pro would be in the downward position with the bobber pointing upward.

    Now how would a monopod, floating or not, do what you want to do? What is your intention?

    If you just want something to prevent your camera from going to the bottom, just attach enough flotation to the case. So if you drop it, it would float to the surface.

    Is that it?

    No, I don't mean a monopod, but a stick. I want to be able to hold it while filming. (And also to prevent it from sinking)

    I want to see if there is something similar for normal cameras?

    FYI: I did see that in the link you provided. That will work. Just use that.

    If you let go, and your camera goes to the bottom, after ignoring what I wrote, don't come crying to me.
