Strong & Light Weight

TG47, B&H Photo
3 December 2014
  • Excerpt: The Gitzo replaces an old aluminum monopod. I wanted a monopod that I can carry all day long at the Daytona and Sebring speedways. I found it in the Gitzo. It is lightweight and super strong. Perfect for shooting with my D7100 and a long zoom lens.

Gitzo carbon fiber monopod

Mad Mike, Adorama
1 July 2014
  • Excerpt: This monopod is lightweight but can be used with a 400 2.8 lens for stability. It is great for taller people (I'm 6' 2" tall) and is simply a workhorse. I've used many monopods and this one is simply the best on the market. Very pleased with my purchase.

Nice and light, but too much pan play.

  • Excerpt: I'm using this on a doc feature. Since I have a very heavy camera (a RED One MX) in a configuration that's 26 lbs...and we're running and gunning, a monopod lets me get in there quickly without having to be handheld... ...which is great. But has this terrible side to side play.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Unstable

Strong and light

Vill, B&H Photo
15 February 2014
  • Excerpt: My first Gitzo product. Was amazed at how light it was, and barely noticed the weight of the mono during shoots. Although my camera/lense combo only weighed approx 22 lbs, I had the confidence that it could handle much more.

Gitzo Fiber Monopod

LindaK, B&H Photo
14 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I'm planning a trip to Italy and wanted a light weight stabilization system for my equipment. I will also take a full blown tripod but thought there would be several occasions when this would fit the bill. I've never used a monopod before and took it out in the backyard this morning to give it a go.

  • Excerpt: I use this monopod with a Really Right Stuff monopod head to go hiking with my Canon 500mm Mk II & Canon 1D Mk IV. It's a great light weight setup for birding.

Lifesaver for hiking with large glass

Endoman, B&H Photo
17 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I cannot recommend this Monopod highly enough! Strong yet light and able to comfortably support my 300 2.8 and 500 f/4. For tougher and/or longer hikes, consider leaving your tripod at home - this guy does the job!

So i decided to try it with my 800mm and 1DX for birding and mammals photography.I was extremely surprised with the ease to install myself, walk and i was able to shoot sharp pictures at speed as low as 1/30...
