Steady as she goes

Phil the Clicker, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use the spiked foot to stabilize my monopod. The best thing about is the ability to change between the spike and the rubber foot depending on the surface and the angle of cantilever I apply to the monopod. It could be a little tighter on the securing ring and the monopod shaft.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Tighter Fit On Shaft

Strong & Sturdy

  • Excerpt: For me the most important feature a mono pod must possess is strength and support. The Manfrotto 694 CX carbon fiber mono pod has both features. This mono pod easily supports my Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 zoom lens with no flexing when extended.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction, Sturdy

Works great

Phottoguy, B&H Photo
14 November 2014
  • Excerpt: This was an additional purchase to supplement an older Manfrotto monopod which I still use. I wanted it for hiking and situations where weight is a factor I purchased a light weight head and everything works well.

flip locks kill this monopod

uncle T, B&H Photo
8 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I used this monopod for about 4 years. Weight, size, speed of set up were fine. I always preferred flip locks for the legs vs twist locks. However, the flip locks on this monopod were very hard to maintain due to dirt that got into mechanism. Cleaning very hard, need hex wrenches.
  • Pros: Compact, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Weak Clamps

Solid Monopod

24 July 2014
  • Excerpt: It's often hard to travel with a tripod since many public places will not let you use one...hence the opportunity for a monopod. Just like everything else that Manfrotto makes (I own two Manfrotto Tripods) this is well built.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Tricky Screw Mount, Very Large Head Mounting
