Perfect for my Special Project

  • Excerpt: I am using this monopod to photograph wild snakes-both poisonous and non-poisonous. I mounted a small ball head on the monopod and my Panasonic FZ-200 to the ball head. I use a slip on flash diffuser to get the best light. I prefer to place the camera at ground level in front of the snake (or other small thing on the ground.)I set the camera on wide angle and use a remote release to fire the camera.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: Bought this monopod after using a friends monopod. Had to have one, b/c I have a shaky hand. I love it, but it's a bit cumbersome if you're following a subject, as the rubber bottom can get hung up on the floor. Also, if you've got it extended, it's a bit of a stretch to bend down and lower each level. Honestly, a tripod is the best in any situation, but this did its job. Works GREAT for still pics too!!!
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Locks In Tight

Just what I needed.

  • Excerpt: I mainly use this for travel so it can fit in my carry on. Mainly used for remote overheads with a 5d body and 16-35. Wouldn't be comfortable with anymore than that above my head. Extending completely to the smallest shaft makes it a little "bendy" but I just try to be careful. I even use it for short periods with a 300 f2.8, but I wouldn't trust it in a run and gun sports environment. Very light, so I can strap it to a waist pack and barely notice it.
  • Pros: Compact, Compact For Travel Ligh, Easily Adjusted, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement

Does the job for smaller cameras

  • Excerpt: Nice little monopod, folds up smaller than most. Sturdy construction with good clips to hold sections in place. The wrist strap is nice as well. The bottom most section is a bit small, so may wobble in use, if you don't need the extra height, might want to skip extending the last section. Good for small, light SLR's or PnS, not quite sturdy enough for bigger heavier cameras.
  • Pros: Compact, Good Value, Locks In Tight

  • Summary: I'm headed to Africa on safari, and a tripod is just too much of a hassle to lug around. Still, I need some stability for my wildlife shots. This compact monopod is a good trade off. I have a great Manfrotto tripiod, and I expected similar quality in their monopod. I am not disappointed. Best part is the quick release and lock extension levers as opposed to the less reliable screw type leg release design.
