My daughter is just getting into photography and she has had difficulty eliminating camera "shake" when snapping the picture with her point and shoot camera. This lightweight monopod eliminates the problem entirely. It is a very inexpensive solution. I have used it with my Canon G-12 and my Leica d-lux3, and it works very well. Naturally, this monopod was not designed to work with my heavy DSLR system, but it is an excellent buy for use with point and shoots.
