Hi friends, Many of you may have read my post last week about night football (now my least favorite photographic situation). As I said, I shoot with bracket in all manual with a 70-200/2.8 VR lens. I'm shooting at my max sync which is 1/250. Here's my question: I see almost all the other photographers using a monopod (some with flash, some without, though it was so dark I don't know how they can shoot without). Would using a monopod give me better pictures? I think NO because I'm shooting at 1/250 which is faster than 1/focal length plus it's a VR lens with VR on. But am I missing something that all these other photographers aren't? Here's a sample photo.
