Excerpt: It's a monopod and it is pretty sturdy. I have a Canon 6D and a 70-200mm 4.0 lens and it has no problem holding it up. I got this one because of the tilt feature, which comes in handy for portrait style shots. This is my second one... I lost the first one.
Summary: I'm really impressed with the quality of the product, especially the smooth operation of the clamps on the slide out sections. And the tilting camera mount on the head of the monopod is excellent as well. What I am a little dissapointed about is how flexible the lowest section of the monopod is since am planning on using it as a walking stick with my camera attached.
Summary: Was just what I needed to take telephoto pics of birds & wildlife. It has a regular mount not fixed. Durable. Only thing I wished it had was a strap to put over my shoulder. It has a belt clip, but a little to heavy.
Excerpt: This monopod has made my video shots and close ups so much better, allowing for a steady shot, but also for following the action. It is easy to use and quite portable; although basic, it is perfect for my purposes.
Excerpt: This is nice to have for quick pick up and mobile use. When I don't want to drag around my heavy tri-pod I just clip this guy to a belt loop and go! Very nice sleek, light weight design. Very smooth and steady support for the camera. Nice range of motion.
Summary: This monopod is the perfect accessory for a mobile/traveling photographer who's looking for a great value. It's well-made and very stable for lenses up to 300mm and, maybe, a little more. It's light, small and perfect for the hiker or backpacker.
Excerpt: My friend loves to travel a lot and adding to that he is addicted to photography. Although he is not using a DSLR camera but his digital camera is good enough for his type of works. I have bought this Vanguard Monopod for him. It helps to take stabilized shots. After using is, he has thanked me for this wonderful gift. This product comes at a reasonable price too.
Excerpt: I use a powerful binocular to study about the birds, since I want to become an Ornithologist in the future. After studying a lot I found that using the binocular with bare hands is not enough to locate birds. Then I started using a monopod. The Vanguard monopod is essential and helps to watch the various locations.A Very useful product for person like me.
