  • Excerpt: I have used the giottos monopod for several years. It is a great to have when using a long lens, especially in tight places. I took it to my granddaughters, dance recital. I was able to seat in my seat and take great pictures in low light. The height is great, I was also able to stand in the back and take pictures without worrying about people trapping over a leg.

Stable and Sturdy

  • Excerpt: I bought the Giottos monopod to replace a Slik monopod that gave to my daughter. Using a 500mm lens on the Slik just didn't quite stay as stable as I wanted. No sooner had I given her the monopod that I had occasion to need a monopod for a nature photography seminar. I quickly went to B&H to find a replacement. The Giottos monopod is a joy to use. It is much more stable than what I had previously used.

The Perfect Choice

  • Excerpt: First Time Purchase for this type equipment. Completed fair amount of product comparisons. Primary use is wild life and landscape photograph. First time use was at Daytona Speedway. Easily transported-compact & light. Great stability with my Canon 7D and 400MM. Single-twist section locks are best; No creep during use. Carbon fiber is stronger but under "average" use this unit is the best value. [...]Highly recommend.

Excellent Choice

  • Excerpt: I'm a videographer currently working on a lot of quick and dirty hand-held video interviews. This monopod is brilliant. It packs down to carry-on luggage size, extends to eye level height (for someone 6'), and is lightweight for the sturdy build. Twisting releases are what you want and these are solid and easy to use. This monopod works brilliantly with the Manfroto swivel/tilt monopod tripod head. Great combination for quick release and lock down.

Great Tool

  • Excerpt: So far we have used the monopod at our grand daughters soccer games and the Christmas programs at our church. We have been very pleased. It really helps stabilize the camera while we're walking around. The only drawback is that the camera can't be tilted. But it isn't enough of a problem to stop using it. I will probably buy the attachment for easily attaching the camera.

Great Monopod

  • Excerpt: Great for sports photography. Good height. Sturdy. Fanastic foot at the bottom that remains flat on the ground yet allows the monopod to "swivel" around while panning and tilting. Great product.

Great monopod

  • Excerpt: This is a very well built monopod. It is very thick and sturdy. Sections lock very nicely and quick. I use it with my Nikon D90 and 18-200 lens and it can hold so much more. Good for travel.

  • Excerpt: This pod is well-build, and well-designed. I use it in a wide range of situations with my 5Dmk2. I put a ballhead on it, and the bag that comes with it has room for both the pod and the ballhead. I carry it in the included bag strapped to the side of my Tenba Sling bag. It provides great stability, though of course not as much as a tripod.

Good sturdy unit .........

  • Excerpt: Looks and feels like a quality unit. Has high load rating - yet quite light. Much better than a poorer quality carbon fibre monopod I have and little weight penalty for the increased quality and function of the leg section clamps.
