Best Monopod

Steve M., B&H Photo
12 November 2013
  • Excerpt: This is my second Bogen monopod ( I broke my first one). It is an intergral part of my video arsenal. It works great in crowds when you have to get over everyones heads and get that great shot. I even set up a zoom lever on the bottom to facilitate movement when I have it over my head. Also works as a steadicam for lighter cameras. The auto function is a no brainer must for on the go. I love this little monopod...can't shoot without it in my bag.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction

Not sure what to do!!

  • Excerpt: I bought this product many years ago and have loved it until last year when it got stuck in the lower part. I've forgotten how I got it unstuck but I got it working again although trying to unlock and lock it is very hard. Now a year later it is stuck again. My husband can't even unstick it. My dilemma is do I buy the exact one again or something else? Because when its working I really love it! Is anybody else having this problem?
  • Pros: Good Footing, Lightweight, Loved It For Years, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Hard To Lock And Unlock, Sticking, Unstable Joints

Excellent Auto MP

  • Excerpt: This works just as advertised. Easy to drop the lower section with a twist. Then the auto raise/lower feature works beautifully with the included grip. Btw, the auto raise/lower works with the lower section up or down. It is a bit long retracted, but that was expected. It's hard to find a shorter retractable MP except for a very simple one. I have a velbon UP-43 that is simple and short, BUT it doesn't raise and lower with the ease of the 334B.

Easy to use Monopod

  • Excerpt: Love the grip release on this monopod for quick and easy camera adjustment. I shot a lot of wildlife and need to have quick and easy camera placement. This is my second time buying this specific monopod, one for each camera : ) Simple to use, light weight, sturdy and reasonably priced.

I would buy this product again and again

  • Excerpt: I use this whenever I need to use my heavy 70mm-200mm lens. I like that it just twists to lock, it can support a good deal of weight and it has a clean finish unlike others that have snap locks for every height change. Keep in mind that I've used this product before and lost the first one and I bought the same product again because of my experience with it.

Did not work! Very difficult to adjust!

  • Excerpt: After reading other positive reviews maybe I just got a bad one? I was exited to get it because it seemed like such a great idea. However when I tried to used the monopod it was very sticky and difficult to adjust. No way I could just use one hand, I had to hold between my feet and force it up or down. It was terrible compared to my rusty, sand filled 12 year old Manfrotto monopod that I was replacing! I returned the item.

So Far, so good.

  • Excerpt: I use this monopod with the Canon 7d, mainly for motion picture. I'm a one man band and have the need for mobility and simplicity. This monopod is great for these situations; I can mic someone up, set up a bounce board without having to even set the camera down. It's more dangerous this way, so I end up setting camera down for sfaety, but I don't have to!
