i have not tried monopod but during an event shooting, i notice alot of pros using monopod.
However, tripod will be more versatile since it can be used for creative long shutter shooting also just bit more cumbersome.
Anyway, im using a < rm300 benro tripod which is quite sturdy and easy to bring around.
