Cheap Tricks #20: Trekking Pole as a Monopod

Some trekking poles now come with a screw for your camera. Instead of mounting your camera directly on the pole, attach a small ball head. Please note that trekking poles are designed to take your entire body weight on the down hills while your monopod is only designed to take the weight of your camera. It's probably not advisable to use your monopod as a walking stick.
