Great for video

  • Excerpt: Love this thing. Used this to shoot a 4-day conference and worked like a champ. The head is very smooth with the tilting motion. It's like any other manfrotto fluid head and comes with a nice long baseplate. The bottom attachment has a good fluid panning movement as well.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: Okay, let's addresst he popping concern. I really don't think it's obnoxious enough to chance buying a product from a brand you've never used before. What I mean, is benro is thrown around a lot. I'm sure it's great, but I trust the Manfrotto name, and I got quality.

  • Excerpt: Love the monopod for its functionality and ease of use, durability and weight capacity... but I was pretty bummed to learn they removed the panning function from the 500 series head it comes with.

Fantastic Monopod!

  • Excerpt: This monopod is fantastic! Let me start out by saying this thing is sturdy! Its nice and thick around so there isnt any issue with you fearing of it bending. The pan is really nice, and I've yet to experience any pan issues with the base that others have noticed.

Valuable asset for filming

  • Excerpt: Prior to using this monpod, things such as hiking or outdoors filming was harder lugging around a heavy tripod. But this monpod is light enough to travel with and gives fluid results for video purposes. It opens up possibilities to be more flexible while filming.

  • Excerpt: I really love this monopod. It is convenient and lightweight. It comes in handy when filming things on the fly and I dont want to use my shoulder rig all day. Problem is that the joint at the bottom sticks and pops.
