Great product for a great price

  • Excerpt: I use the monopod for out and indoors video with my 2ti dslr. I really enjoy it, especially the lightness and compactness of it. It does take a few times to get a handle so it doesn't shake too much. Next purchase will be to by the base/legs extension.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight

Needs finer details perfected...

  • Excerpt: The construction, I think, is really great -- solid and well-built. However, the strap just simply comes off -- it's not that it doesn't stay on - it just falls off completely so I will need to purchase an additional strap. And, when you tilt the camera to take a portrait photo, there is nothing to stop the camera from crashing down onto, unfortunately, my finger...my finger was sore for days and actually was an open wound.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction

Quality product

  • Excerpt: I recently purchased a 200-500 mm zoom and needed a monopod to hold it steady. This does a good job, sturdy, well constructed however I wish I would have bought the model where you can get the tri-pod feet for more stability.
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Locks In Tight, Rugged, Smooth Movement
  • Cons: Jerky Movement, Unstable

Built tough

  • Excerpt: This is my first monopod. I purchased one as I was told itwould help my hand-held photos; it does indeed.I purchased the Bogen/Manfrotto 3229 swivel head with this,and I must say it takes some time to get used toarticulating the monopod between shots. Especially,changing tilt angles are not easy. Of course, this could beentirely due to the user-error; may be someday I will reallylearn to use a monopod right!Otherwise, it's a very solid built gear.

bien mais encombrant

8 April 2014
  • Conclusion: Pour la chasse photo en haute montagne où le poids du matériel compte, c'est un bon outil qui semble fiable mais qui est lourd et encombrant.
  • Pros: solidité réglage du pied
  • Cons: épaisseur poids longueur et encombrement replié absence de housse absence d'un système de sangle permettant de le fixer à un sac à dos
