Great for fast action

  • Excerpt: I bought this to be able to quickly set up a monopod to support photographing birds in flight with a long lens. I'm impressed how much faster this monopod allows me to set up and take down than any monopod I've used before. A joy!

Super Monopod

  • Excerpt: I bought this as a Christmas present for my husband. It is very easy to use as you can work it and adjust it with one hand and still keep your camera secure. We are going on a big trip next summer to the Mediterranean and will be taking lots of pictures.

Monopod Extraordinaire

  • Excerpt: I've used this monopod and its predecessor with a 3oo and a 400 2.8 for more than 7 years. It works. If you stand and kneel and stand and kneel as you shoot, the one-handed height adjustment is great. Like all good tools, if you use this one regularly, it needs regular maintenance.

It's a win

mtngirl, B&H Photo
24 February 2014
  • Excerpt: This was my first monopod, but I can't imagine not being able to alter the height one handed and on the go after using this monopod. It's a little longer than some, but it isn't heavy and think the trade off of the one handed mechanism is worth it.

Best thing since sliced bread

Arlin, B&H Photo
31 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I use this monopod with a Canon 5D Mark II with a 70-200 f/2.8 IS lens. I shoot sports and theater, and I've had this monopod for several years. This lens, which weighs 3.5 pounds, has a tripod mount that will swivel, so I don't need a head on the monopod.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Height Adjustments

30 December 2013
  • Excerpt: As a Real Estate Photographer, my Manfrotto monopod is in my hand nearly every day. This is my second in three years - I wore the first one out. Biggest challenge is replacing the "foot" if you lose it (which can happen easily when tramping shooting landscape around up-scale homes or on large...

Quick deploy

Friend of St. Joseph, B&H Photo
22 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Compared to my other Manfrotto monopod: + deploys quickly: much easier and faster than opening and closing three latches - feels slightly less substantial - the fully closed length is noticably longer Gotcha: arrives new with a thin film of grease/oil on the legs, which is annoying to get on your...
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use
  • Cons: Bulky
