Summary: The monpod is well designed. The camera mount is nicely designed in that it it easily goes from horizontal format to vertical fornat. The reason I gave it only a four star rating is that it is too short. I am 5 foot 10 and the pod only extends 58 inches. Too short for me.
Summary: 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.
Summary: 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.
Summary: After searching in various shops I was about to give up my hope for buying a suitable monopod. But thank God I got the right product at last. The vanguard monopod is what I was searching. It’s a light weight and easy to use Monopod.
