Hmmm... so your walking along, holding the camera by the monopod?...on a monopod
You must be grasping it right near the camera... you do this for landscape shots, where there is foliage ect... with such a 'brick'.. I dunna know...
Are you carrying it upside down??
I've used a monopods on other camera's, including my speed graphic, but once the shot, or shots, were taken, disconnected before discovering 'next' location.
