18 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I have a very heavy Miller tripod that I usually keep wheels on which gives it a wide footprint. At times I don't want to bring it to a short interview or b-roll location. The Manfrotto has already become a great asset as I can run and gun with it and get the stabilization I need without bring in...

Great purchase

Green Shooter, B&H Photo
21 October 2014
  • Excerpt: The 3 small legs at the bottom makes this monopod unique and amazing. The only knock, and it's minor, is that the ball pivot at the bottom cannot be fully locked.If I have a light camera on the head, then it'll stay on its own, but if you have heavier camera/lens you'll have too hold it at all...

OK-but it's over-priced for what it is.

  • Excerpt: My wife has used this for both video and still photography using a D7100. Pan is smooth, legs are a little skinny. It works ok. I personally don't see any real advantage with this monopod over a regular one - and you can get a very nice standard monopod for a lot less money. P.S.

Handy walkaround

  • Excerpt: Quite well made; unlike some other reviewers I find the leg locks to be more than adequate. The head is not so hot but can be improved somewhat by disassembling it, lightly sanding the graphite disk that's inside with 320 grit or finer sandpaper on a flat surface, then adding more graphite powder or...

Works For What It's Intended To Do

10 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this monopod and put a 701HDV head on it. The fluid pan at the base is superb and works well. NOTE: Some reviewers complain that the tilt is jerky at the base, and it is because it wasn't intended to tilt at the base. It was made to pan smoothly, which it does very well.
