Excerpt: The Induro CM24 monopod is all I had hoped for: lightweight, solid, easy to use and easily holds my camera and 400mm lens. Paired with a BHL1 ballhead, it's perfect for hiking and wildlife photography.
Excerpt: My wife wanted a monopod for her new Nikon 7100 camera set up. I originally purchased a hiking pole with a camera mount, but upon receiving it realized it would never support the weight of a DSLR. Back it went, and we started looking at monopods that one could also hike with.
Excerpt: Bought this monopod to use with a DSLR and it has exceeded my expectations. It's stable, strong and the leg locks are fairly quick and secure. I've added a Manfrotto 234RC tilt head with RC2 quick release that maintains standardization among my quick release plates.
Excerpt: I use monopods mostly for sports shooting. The Manfrotto I had used for years was just too heavy so I went for the Induro. And I am very happy with it. It opens easily and collapses just as easily.
Excerpt: This monopod is great! It's super light weight and easy to open and close. It folds down to a great size for traveling & has a nice belt loop holder for it when you are not using it. When opened to the max height it's very stable. Leg locks are very strong and easy to turn.
Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this primarily to support an off-camera flash with lightbox held by an assistant. It is sturdy, smooth-operating, and feels more like a Gitzo than anything else. When collapsed it fits perfectly inside of a Pelican 1510 case with my other lighting equipment. I love this thing!
Excerpt: Since this is my first monopod, I don't have a a comparison for this review. This pod is very solid, yet does not weigh much at all. My tripod head is actually heavier than the monopod!
Because of how solid it is, it has a very sturdy feel.
