Choosing the right tripod or monopod is essential both for the quality or your project and the safety of the kit and the people around you. The weight and size of the camera including any attached accessories need to be considered. If you are not sure then please ask.
The right tripod like the classic Sachtler 18p or the Manfrotto 504 can up the quality of your shoot by adding stability to the static shots or a smooth fluid movement to your pans and tilts.
Monopods are great especially if you want something lightweight because you are moving around all day and they are very quick to set up.
