I am looking to buy my first monopod. I’m fairly tall (6’3”, and am just looking for a basic monopod. I am going to help a friend shoot some high school sports. If I like it, I will invest more in a CF one. For now, I have been looking at these 4 models. Can you offer any guidance on them or another one I should consider? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/463064-REG/Giottos_MM9780_MM_9780_5_Section_Monopod.html http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/5535-REG/Manfrotto_by_Bogen_Imaging_680B_680B_4_Section_Compact_Monopod.html http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...y_Bogen_Imaging_681B_681B_Monopod_Black_.html I am leaning toward the Giottos as it's going to be taller and sounds like a sturdy setup. I have never used that brand though. However, I am also fond of Manfrotto.
