Are monopods effective?

Monopods can also help if you’re filming video, allowing for smoother panning and steadier fixed shots. Another use for monopods is often seen on the sports field, where photographers simply use their monopods as a support, to hold up the weight of their camera and telephoto lens.

How do you stabilize a monopod?

Lean the stabilizer against a stationary object like a wall or tree. This takes the stability of the monopod a big step closer to the stability you get when using a tripod. You still cannot let go of your camera with this stabilizer-bar method like you can with a three-legged tripod.
