Shooting my first college football game this weekend, and wondering if I should use a monopod. I have already shot some high school football, and so far I've lasted up until about halftime, then tossing the monopod. Even with a 1D4 and 300 2.8 I found it easier to hold it than keep it on a monopod, I can move side-to-side quicker.
And, yea, I know, it's better to have a 400 2.8 for football, but it's all I've got, next to a 70-200 for closer action.
So any tips, opinions would be appreciated.
