Needed a tripod for the video camera, and morphed an old one into a monopod. I had cabbaged a leg and the post with the attachment bolt several years ago to make a monopod, and this is what was left over. So, one tripod became two monopods. Fascinating, huh?
That epoxy is a mess, gets all over your fingers as you knead it, and then... RING RING... At least my nose didn't start to itch. I bought the tripod for five bucks years ago at a pawn shop, and it was very short and flimsy, so I added an extra leg section to this iteration
Makes the videos a little steadier at the telephoto end of the zoom range. Yes, there will be a test.
