I’m using the video above as a way to get feedback on available tripod types.
Cost: $100 to $500
Cheapest option I could find includes these parts
- ESDDI tripod base for $55 without tax, free shipping
- Koolehaoda monopod for $43
- tripod adapter screw set $14 (22 pc)
You must add weight to the bottom of the monopod or it will be unstable. Without the weights, it may tip over and crack the lens of your Z1.
- Bushman monopod v2 is $150 with 0.9 lb counterweight
The weight attaches between the monopod and the feet.
Cost: $22 for Amazon Basics to $40
This works surprisingly well, but it is a bit bulky and heavy.
Optional idea to weight a monopod. These are ankle weights.
You need to weight the monopod as low as possible to offset the weight of the Z1.
Place the weight at the bottom of the monopod.
I’m using a separate tripod for the base plus a monopod. My setup is more cumbersome, but I wanted it for more stability outside for virtual tours testing.
