Good monopod but terrible ball

  • Excerpt: Everything is good except its ball. It always clicked. No way to achieve smooth pan. It's the problem of friction. Manfrotto needs to redesign the bottom fluid ball.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Opens Quickly
  • Cons: Click, Unstable Joints

As Good as a Monopod Can Get for Video at that Price

  • Excerpt: I really like this monopod! I used it on a video shoot the other day and I was impressed by its versatility. Okay, so it does have some quirks but I've been able to work around them so far.

Convenient & well made

  • Excerpt: I use this product with a GH2 and similar dslr style cameras. I prefer it over a tripod because it enables me to move much faster - particularly while shooting b-roll at various locations.
  • Pros: Compact, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavier Than I Thought

Pretty Awesome

  • Excerpt: Very nice monopod. No complaints. The legs on the bottom add much more versatility and the monopod can even balance on them without assistance. The release plate is pretty cool too. You can take the camera right off instead of having to slide it through the head.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction

Better than the Benro Monopod

Blowup, B&H Photo
29 June 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought the Benro monopod that has a tilting base too and on the first day of usage the tilting base plate got stuck and I sent it back and got the Manfrotto Monopod . The monopod can stand autonomously without falling sideways which is a great plus if you are shooting with a B camera.

  • Excerpt: Okay so, it's probably WAY too early to actually write a review for a product as I've only had it for about a week and haven't even really used it yet but here it goes. I like it. I mean, it's sturdy, it gets really tall, and it feels smooth.
  • Pros: Compact, Fits 501 Plate Kinda, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Expensive
