Pro ’s Killer kit #03 Gitzo mono­pod, Arca Swiss ball head

NPhoto - - Apprentice -

A mono­pod is worth its weight in gold when shoot­ing motorsport, not so much for shoot­ing as for tak­ing the weight of heavy lenses when you’re not shoot­ing. When I’m ac­tu­ally track­ing a sub­ject, I some­times find my­self just lift­ing the whole rig off the ground to get the shot I want, as monopods can be a bit re­stric­tive, es­pe­cially if some­thing un­ex­pected hap­pens. For this rea­son, a good ball-head is a must, as it of­fers much more free­dom of move­ment when you’re fram­ing your shots than a fixed base­plate.
