Monopod Shoulder Brace

Stumbled across this

tripods, heads, monopods, light stands, camera supports, lighting supports, professional tripod 361 - SHOULDER BRACE FOR MONOPOD

Which looks like a really useful accessory. I've still got a Kaiser rifle grip that was great for bracing with a long telephoto and this looks like a modern equivalent, although the Kaiser did not fit onto a monopod. The snag is that it is difficult to switch to portrait orientation, but if you are going to be taking a lot of landscape orientation shots with a long lens and a monopod, this could be really useful. It apparently works with any monopod.

I found it in the Keene Electronics catalogue

Keene Electronics

and for less than 21 it looks like a good buy.

Re: Monopod Shoulder Brace

Interesting gadget. I threw out my rifle grip long time ago. Was a must have once upon a time but nowadays? But there again I love gadgets.

Thanks for the tip, Dabs.

I've been looking for something like this for a while, now.
