Excerpt: I use it for Behind-the-scene shoot with DSLRs... Very light and easy to use... Only thing to consider is to add a quick release plate, but if you are alway on the go...no worries. With Full extension, it will slightly bend, if you have long heavy len attached.
Excerpt: used this monopod while shooting [*] football games in a row one day and it really saved my back and arms! it supported 6lbs telephoto lens plus my camera just fine. Was concerned at first, for the price would it hold the weight? but it really didn't seem to be an issue.
Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This monopod is fairly well built and is quick and easy to deploy. Extensions can sometimes deploy to easily but it's quick to correct. Super light weight. I use this as an extension "arm" for a soft box.
