Affordable and reliable

Alex, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I've used this Espod AM-263 monopod with C-12 Quick Release Clamp, primary for my ES 500 4.0L/MK5d II combo (that's about 5+ kilo plus flash weight). The main bonus of this monopod is its sturdy metal-made ball head that only tilts back and forth but not sideways (and that's a plus). I did remove a rubber pad from the head foot to allow the screw go deeper into the clamp, so it sits about 2/3 deep in the opening.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly

Amazing features of Vanguard Espod AM-263 Monopod

Guest, homeshop18

  • Excerpt: The Vanguard Espod AM-263 Monopod is very strongly built while being very light at the same time. It has a very good design and provides very good and steady holding position for the camera. It is very easy to carry around and is reliable enough to be used for expensive cameras, as I have been using it myself for my expensive camera as well.

  • Excerpt: One important factor while buying a tripod or monopod is how easy it is to carry around while at the same time providing reliability because it’s usually used for expensive cameras. When it comes to my requirements the Vanguard Espod AM-263 Monopod has ticked all the boxes. I bought it last month and I’m very happy with the ease I can carry it around.

Learning photography with the help of Vanguard Espod AM-263 Monopod

Guest, homeshop18
16 September 2013
  • Excerpt: I’m an amateur photographer and learning photography as of right now. Taking good quality, sharp pictures is a very difficult task at slow shutter speeds so I bought the Vanguard Espod AM-263 Monopod. It has helped me a lot as I have been able to take sharp pictures by holding my camera steadily while using longer focal length lenses. It is very light and easy to carry around.

Light and portable

  • Summary: This is a very light and portable monopod. It can also be used as a walking stick during treks. It has a carabiner clip to attach to your backpack and you will not even realise you are carrying a monopod. Ideal for medium end DSLRs and can be used with medium sized telephoto lenses (like the Canon 70-200L) as well. Fully recommended.
