  • Holding Steady

    Hi all,

    I am 69 (shaky) & new to aviation photography & have a problem holding steady enough to lock focus when panning & need some sort of support (have trouble keeping the aircraft in the viewfinder let alone focusing on it).

    What are your thoughts on either tripod or monopod?

    While the tripod would be more stable the monopod would be far less obtrusive standing in or around other photographers.

    TIA

    Ross.

    I have tried both as I have a fine hand tremor these days. However, I didn’t get on terribly well with either. What I did get on with however is a shoulder brace.

    It’s designed for use with a monopod but it works well on its own.
    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !
