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

  • 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

Nice concept and quality

  • Excerpt: I use a monopod very often for filming, and I am very happy with my purchase of the Manfrotto monopod with fluid elements. It pretty much does what it is meant for. With some practicing almost tripod like pans are possible.

Great versatility

  • Excerpt: I needed something for a quinceanera I shot over last weekend that was light enough to move around but stable and this solved the problem. Worked great and the client was happy. Next on my list is a Glidecam!

Great piece of gear

  • Excerpt: This is a great monopod and fluid head combo. However, as it has been said in previous comments, the head is only a tilt head. The panning comes from the base of the monopod. Not a deal breaker for me, but it is a little bit of an adjustment.

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.

  • Excerpt: Everything about this is makes it a solid investment. The only downfall is that the plate is not always easy to slide back on the head.
