Hi Folks, I am off to the Asheboro Zoo with my kids tomorrow and I have rented a 300mm f/2.8 (non-VR)for the occasion. I have a monopod with no ballhead that will be screwed on to the foot of the lens. I have been playing around with this rig some today and I'm getting a lot of sway back and forth. Any tips or tricks that can miraculously help me become better equipped to wield this monster overnight???:biggrin: Gracias in advance!
