Amazing tool

  • Excerpt: I love this Monopod! I have been using it for video production for a few months now and will always carry one of these guys with me. This monopod is very handy for quickly grabbing steady shots, including pan/tilt shots, while on the run. It makes setting up and tearing down a breeze!I don't really have anything negative to say about this monopod as I have yet to have a bad experience with it or wish that it could do more.

Great versatile monopod for video

Digital Lens, B&H Photo
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: Far and away the best piece of stabilization equipment in my arsenal. Great for DSLR run-n-gun b-roll shooting. This monopod is lightweight, easy-to-use and incredibly versatile. The feet make this unit very sturdy for fixed shots. While the head tilts, the monopod leg itself swivels on a ball-joint for panning type camera motion, and the tension on the joint is easily adjustable with a hex wrench.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly

Solves camera shake

WP, B&H Photo
26 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I've used this once so far for a wedding and I loved it. I used to be all handheld, but got tired of the difficulty and occasional shaky video. It has a nice fluid head. I put an additional quick release on top to match that of my tripod. My only gripe is, if you want the monopod to stand on it's own with a fairly heavy camera, you need to tighten the ball joint at the bottom quite a bit, which makes the movement stick a little.

Amazing!!

  • Excerpt: This is by far one of the best things I have bought for my video editing company. Super smooth movements with the fluid head. The handle is adjustable and can fit to either side. I have been nothing but impressed with the video I have taken with it. If you are making videos I would recommend picking up one of these before you ever start!

Clicky/Jerky Bottom Ball Joint Solution

Tony, B&H Photo
19 November 2014
  • Excerpt: First of all, for those who have a problem with the bottom ball joint being jerky, some WD-40 solved the problem once and for all for me. Sorry if jerky is too vague a word to describe the problem, but if you have the problem, you'll know what I'm talking about. More specifically, if you experience jerking during panning, tighten the adjustment screw, so that all the panning will be coming from the fluid joint at the bottom instead of the ball joint.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction
