Summary: This is a very good travel monopod or when weight is an important concern. I travelled around the world with it, strapped to the outside of my backpack, and at 400g, it was barely noticeable on my shoulders. As for the type of head to use, it would be up to what you already have or prefer to use. Pros: - Foam grip is welcome on cold days. Trust me, holding your had to a cold piece of aluminum on a frosty morning is not pleasing.
Pros: Lightest + sturdiest in its class, short collapsed length
Cons: ratchets require too much tension for the diameter of the pole, foot peg is fixed
Summary: I own a tripod and borrowed this monopod to a friend when I wanted to shoot events with more mobility. It has a high quality for the price, and a monopod really helped me. With a weight of 400g, it is light enough. A good quality low-price monopod!
Summary: I've used this monopod to shoot weddings and social gatherings, both for the 1-2 extra stops of stability, and to give my arms at least a brief respite from the weight of camera + flash + lens during all-day shoots. It's relatively quick to extend and collapse, and light enough to not make the whole kit too difficult to lug around. Construction quality also seems quite good, especially considering the price.
Summary: This monopod gets the job done. Both grab shots with a digicam, or panned action shots with a (too-heavy-to-hold-long) AFS 80-200mm f2.8 zoom on a D200. In this part of the country, tripods on the sidelines at sporting events are considered a danger to the athletes , and are increasingly prohibited.
Cons: This monopod gets the job done. Both grab shots with a digicam, or panned action shots with a (too-heavy-to-hold-long) AFS 80-200mm f2.8 zoom on a D200.
Summary: I used this monopod a lot in SLR days for surf / windsurf shooting. It's very lightweight and makes it really easy to move when changing your point of view, when you would be more stuck to your place with a big heavy tripod. It is now completely eaten by salt and sand, and I can't extend it anymore... but I really wouldn't blame it for that...
Pros: Lighweight, cheap, well built
Cons: I used this monopod a lot in SLR days for surf / windsurf shooting.
Summary: Nice monopod, and easy to carry. I use it with 234 RC2 head, witch has the same quick release mechanism, as 488RC2. So i don't have to change plate every time i want to use any of monopod/tripod. Recommended, for small to medium comb lens/camera.
Pros: LightWeight, Nice price for manfrotto, easy to use.
Summary: Come sapete il mio ragazzo ha la passione della fotografia e quindi compra sempre un sacco di roba come obiettivi, lenti, cavalletti, ecc. Tutte cose molte costose purtroppo che in genere si fa spedire sa qualche paese sperduto per pagarli di meno..Tra le cose meno costose e più accessibili ci sono in genere i cavalletti che si distinguono in treppiedi e monopiedi.
Pros: resistente, pratico e leggero, chiusure affidabili
Summary: Non lo volevo comprare, non li volevo spendere quei soldi. Poi, mi sono ricreduta... Ed ho fatto bene! Parlo del Monopiede Manfrotto 676B Digi. E' un supporto per macchine fotografiche, digitali e no, e qualunqe altro dispositivo come videocamere, o simili. L'atrezzo è statao acquistato in un negozio della catena "Il Fotoamatore", pagandolo poco meno di 40 euro. Era proprio il prezzo infatti a trattenermi.
Pros: Aiuta molto negli scatti in situazioni critiche
