Using Monopod as Steadicam

Maintaining a steady camera can be difficult for many. This video demonstrates an inexpensive alternative to somewhat bulky, and often expensive steadicams. I've been using a monopod for several years now and find that the counter weight and fulcrum effect of the monopod works well to steady the camera. Propping the pod into your waist also works well, or extending the sections as intended. The video shows a larger camera in the beginning with a short example in the end with a tiny still camera for video.
