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.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight

  • 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.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Jerky, Unstable Joints

  • Excerpt: So far, I've used this to video record sports events in tight places where a tripod wouldn't fit. For that purpose it performs well...I can place it in position for stationary shots and it's stable enough stand on it's own (although I wouldn't want to walk away from it, just in case).
  • Pros: Opens Quickly, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: I am a professional wedding filmmaker. The fluid head works flawlessly and Manfrotto made some minor improvements but more importantly I had hoped they would have figured out how to make the base movement more fluid but unfortunately they have not.

This is a fun / useful device but ...

  • Excerpt: OK this is a great addition to any kit - however I do have some cons. Let's do the good first though ... It's solid, it locks the setions well, I like the stabilizing feet, the whole thing is very well built overall.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Head Unscrews On Pan, No Way To Lock The Base, Pan Is Way Too Tight

This changes everything

  • Excerpt: I hate using tripods, I only use them for a video interview shoot or something similar. I always prefer handheld filming, but with longer focal lengths, I get shaky footage. This monopod has been an absolute game changer for me. Highly recommended!
