Manfrotto 790B Modo Mono review by MikeP_UK

MikeP_UK, slrgear.com
8 September 2009
  • Summary: I needed assistance with steadying shots with my long lens. I reckon this gives me the equivelent of an additional 2 stops on shutter speed. This monopod is rated to 1 kg (2.2 pound) but I happily use it with Nikon D90 + Nikkor 70-300 VR - about 1.6 kg.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, light, packs very small, well made.
  • Cons: Needs addition of ball head (in my opinion),

I like it... but...

Michael S., Newegg

  • Summary: I misplaced this tripod... so I'm replacing it with another monopod from Newegg.
  • Pros: Good quality build. Positive locking sections. Short length when folded.
  • Cons: The handgrip is NOT round... more of an oval shape. Depending on how many turns it takes to screw it to your camcorder... the handgrip might be off. Very annoying. Not a pleasure to hold.

Decent Monopod

Matt W., Newegg

  • Summary: Great for casual users. If you plan on using this alot, you might want to pay a little more for something better.
  • Pros: Lightweight and compact. Looks good too.
  • Cons: Hand strap keeps coming undone. A little wobbly when fully extended, only due to the small size of the last extension.

Good for ultralight or casual use.

Anonymous, Newegg
4 January 2007
  • Summary: I'm 5' 9", and in some situations this is too short for me. That's why I dock it a star: Nevertheless, I marvel at its high quality; it has uses in ultralight trekking and for casual use.
  • Pros: Small, light, unobtrusive. Very steady for its size and width. Easily stored permanently in car or just about anywhere else.
  • Cons: Short. 1/4" consumer mounting screw only.

Manfrotto 790B: si piega (pochissimo) ma di sicuro non si spezza!
