28. STRING MONOPOD
THIS IS ONE of the lightest-weight camera support systems you’ll ever use. The concept is to use a string or a cord as the support. But, rather than the camera resting on top of a monopod, you pull “up” on the string to provide stability. This design uses a cord tensioner to adjust the length of the cord near the camera, rather than requiring you to bend down to adjust the length near your foot.
