Great for Organic Filmmaking

  • Excerpt: I am really excited to use this Monopod. I am in the process of changing my shooting style to a more human look and the Monopod seems perfect for that. It also allows you to stand on narrow benches and get angles that were not possible with a tripod.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Weak Clamps

Great for videographers

  • Excerpt: I mainly use this excellent tool for weddings and small free lance videography gigs. I only recently bought it but have used it several times already and once you get used to panning at the base of the monopod it is a very useful addition to your equipment list. Also a plus for me is the detachable fluid head that I can now use for my slider and other mounted equipment. Decent price and easy to get good at.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Great BUT head is Soooo Heavy

VegasTechGeek, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: For photos. This tripod allows adjustment of the folding feet-when tightened, I was able to shoot night shots on the Las Vegas strip with blur ONLY where intended while my focus was dead on. No problems with shake, shudder or wobble. But for photos, you will need to work out to heft this monopod around unless you change out the head. For video it is absolutely the best monopod Onhave ever used.

Probably the best monopod available.

  • Excerpt: I have two of these. The old one and the newer one with the red housing on the bottom pan-drag unit. They are sturdy. The head is decent for DSLRs and EX1R. The only complaint that lost it a star is that you will eventually get the "stuttering pan" effect during slow pans. That is easily fixed with a shot of silicone spray, but obviously that is not how it should be. Still, I haven't found anything that compares, so I can't complain too much.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Jittery Pans

SOLID

  • Excerpt: The best! make sure to use a little wd40 on the ball joint and you're good to go. Also, i'm pretty sure my cine rig exceeds the weight limit so don't take it too seriously. Awesome, solid monopod.

Great addition to a video kit

Monopodder, B&H Photo
24 January 2015
  • Excerpt: This feet on this monopod are a helpful addition for any videographer on the go. Though the monopod will stand on its own, it's not strong enough to hold much weight. Those feet will, however, relieve some pressure for the videographer who may be standing in place for a while. It's well-built, with a smooth tilt in the head, and a smooth pan built into a unique joint near the feet.
