Great Monopod

tKomaru, Adorama

  • Excerpt: When my equipment gets too heavy, this works really great!! I use this for the still not for the movie, so I purchased ball head and it's just perfect. The great thing about this is, you can take photos with this and when you wanna take it off, just take if off with the quick release plate and the monopod just keep standing there.
  • Pros: Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: I use the 393 Heavy Duty Gimbal Type Telephoto Lens Support<br />and needed another QR plate for fast change out from my 400mm to the 75-300mm. Love the solid mounting this 357 Pro Quick Release Adapter provides. Locks on very solid and safe. With the safty latch it will not fall off no matter how big a lens you use.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Professional Quality, Stays locked on, Very secure

Not just for photography!

Jeremy, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I originally bought this head for photographing birds. It works very well for this application. Along the way I also found it to be a great spotting scope mount. Just as in photographing birds, I can pan around the large flocks of waterfowl that gather in this area each winter very easily. It stays where I stop and has fluid movement. My only negative comments would be that there is not a flash bracket available to get flash over the lens ( had to build my own).
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Limited Compatibility

Best monopod for video

Alf, Adorama
4 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Don't bother with any other monopod for video use. This is the best out there, having used others. Three stable feet for rock solid shots, but of course, a tripod is always best. Only downside is that Manfrotto used a *different* mounting plate and the other plates from my 502 don't fit! Whatever were they thinking? Now I have to change baseplates for changing tripods! That is why I only gave it 4 stars. Manfrotto, fix that issue!
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Mounting Plate Unique
