    Thanks gents!
    Ill go have a rummage at the cam shop near work see what they can do on a gorilla pod.
    And will keep an eye on fleabay for a bargain monopod, looks like it will double up as an old boys walking stick too!!

    20151217_111820.jpg I use my monopod for pretty much that. I live on the marshes so it's invaluable for checking that next step and it can give you 3 or 4 stops when the light goes.

    The Gorilla has the extra advantage that you're not limited to the ground. If the camera's light enough you can use it as a clamp too.

    You'd be surprised what you can dump in the bottom of your bag to brace your kit...

    Tripod - SLIK - Sprint Mini II. It is about 10 inches long but extends to full hight in 3 extendible sections. Proper little tripod, light and small, and will take up to a normal DSLR and kit lens, is what I have used it for.

    Panasonic TZ70 travel zoom compact camera. Wanting something better than just the iPhone, but without the hassle of bigger DSLR style camera and lenses - to take on trips.

    Military Road, Isle of Wight.

    A couple from yesterday's local sand racing at Vazon Beach.

    The little Panasonic TZ70 super-zoom compact is struggling a bit with the conditions. Very bright light reflected off the wet sand, and the detail is very poor really when you look at the images closely.

    Still, it managed some pictures at 20x zoom, better than an iPhone, but not in the same league as a Nikon D810 with a 500 mm f4 lens !

    The speedway type bikes had a big oval course marked out for them, and the motocross bikes a more twisty technical type course. These guys were flying along the straights !

    Still a lovely looking bike, despite all the other more modern bikes around.

    I think mine has the best colour scheme. I have put some bits on from a 2010 blade and fantastic gold forks. image.jpeg
