If you’re going to be traveling and hiking, you definitely don’t want to haul a stabilizer around with you. A great solution is to use a monopod. Extend the legs down, one or two sections, keep it OFF the ground, and simply let the weight of the monopod stabilize the shot as you pan. Other times, especially when hiking, you’ll want to just use the monopod normally – with its single foot on the ground. They also make for a good walking stick :)… Most monopods have a shoulder strap, making them easy to carry and easy to access when you need them.
