You might wind up hating the monorail for the extreme bulkiness of the camera when shooting outdoors. Unless you can find a model that folds flat they mostly are all angles and protuberances when toting. I have a carry case for mine that holds it upside down across the dividers but the thing is as big as a large beer cooler. Not much good for hiking. I use my Ebony much more as I like to shoot landscape and nature shots.
