This instructable is for those of you who have heavy cameras and want to take fairly steady pictures while not carrying a tripod or monopod.
For those who are unaware, a monopod is a device designed for keeping a camera steady while still allowing for mobility as is good if you are taking long exposure pictures, or don't want the extra weight of a tripod. The question that this instructable answers is what to do if you don't want to carry a monopod either.
For this instructable you will need:
lightweight cane or walking stick (1x)
sturdy, flat topped hat (1x)
heavy camera (1x)
Step 1: Carrying Materials
I was at WonderCon last weekend and had no real way to carry a tripod or monopod. Not only that, but either one of which would have conflicted with the costume I was wearing. This monopod is something that I came up with while trying to take low light photos of the masquerade on saturday night.
I'm the guy on the left. As you can see from the picture I already have all of the pieces to create this monopod.
