More on the monopod
I had a chance to roam around Golden Gate Park with my camera setup. That would be the Digital Rebel Xt, 100-400m IS zoom, and a 1.4 x teleconverter. This was all mounted on the monopod. I found an egret and started taking photos. I have had a hard time taking hand-held photos with the 540 mm lens (35mm equivalent of 896 mm )
However, with the monopod, it was much easier, even with the higher speed. I think part of it was being able to focus better (have to manually focus at this length) There was no cropping for this image...
EXIF data is 1/2500 sec at f.9, ISO 1600. IS off.
