When I first started out on my photographic career I purchased a Gitzo monopod. It has served me well. It was only in the past couple of years that I decided to get a head for it.
It was a big mistake getting the “correct” head from Gitzo for my monopod. The head I chose is pretty big for a piece of kit that is supposed to be easy to lug around. There are also just too many different knobs and fiddly things on it for me to be comfortable with it.
As 3 Legged Thing have a sale on and the AirHed is going for a bit cheaper than normal I decided to replace it with their far superior bit of kit. Boy I don’t regret it. The Gitzo is going back into the box.
