Excerpt: My first Monopod..Just GREAT,Its lightweight just a shade over a Lb.Sets up easy only 2 leg locks and clips to my belt loop w/supplied clip or wrist strap for safety/downpull.On my beltloop i hardly know its there only for the occassional leg bump. Love it and it will travel many miles/shoots with me.Price is good too.
Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I needed a monopod to help me steady my long lens shots when the use of a tripod was not permitted. This one works for me. It is lightweight and opens quickly. I like having 2 quick flip leg locks instead of the 3 or more twist locks. I have added a Kirk quick release clamp to the Tilt Head to use the quick release plates mounted to the tripod feet of my 70-200 and 80-400 lenses. My max load is a D700 w/ battery pack and 80-400 lens.
Excerpt: I have this device personally kept in the last two years. When I found this monopod I was really surprised and also very happy. This device is best for photographer and I can easily set up this at any place. It is best for capturing beautiful attractive images and shooting. It is best suitable for me and my hobby of photography.
Excerpt: Few days back I got Vanguard Espod Monopod and I love it. It is very beneficial for me and my career. This monopod is very strong and powerful. The rotation option makes it very relaxed to regulate to different heights rapidly. It is very easy to encompass and pull back and other adjustments very well as I want or as I required.
Excerpt: I found Vanguard Espod AM-233 Monopod with its extensive use and feel very well and happy. Due to its monopod it is very easy and quickly adjustable and installable in every place where I need to capture image. It is enough hard to capture image and also get the camera image according to my choice. I can make most of the adjustments as I want with the rest of the easily and quickly adjustable.
Summary: I was thinking of a monopod for some time. This is a very handy tool to own for those who do a lot of low light/indoor photography. It is stable,sturdy and solidly built.I can easily mount my SLR with a long lens or with the Off-camera-flash.It does handle well. Its tailor-made for shooting horizontally and vertically. Recently I used this monopod to shoot a panorama.I found it very convenient. Would have loved more flexibility at the head of the monopod.
Summary: Bravo Flipkart for delivering the product within 24 Hrs of order placement. The packing as usual was Top-notch. The build quality of the AM-233 is excellent and is quite easy to use. It certainly helps in avoiding the IS / VR feature and adds atleast 2 stops shutter speed. It is no match to the ones with a Ballhead but serves the purpose. Although it fits well on my slingbag, a bag for this Monopod might have been handy. Well worth the money.
Excerpt: I just got this today and I already love it!! It's built very solid. Feels great in your hands. The twist option makes it very easy to adjust to different heights quickly. Easy to extend and retract and the adjustments hold the monopod extended very well. I quickly found that to use the monopod quickly and easily I needed a ball head as there was no way to adjust the camera without adjusting the monopod also.
