  • Excerpt: I bought it to use as a prop, to take the place of a kickstand for a new carbon frame bicycle. Performs well. Plan also to hook it on my belt to take along when using telephoto lenses on my Panasonic GH1.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight

Nice concept, fair quality

  • Excerpt: Nice lightweight, decent height monopod. Unfortunately after using it for a week one of the plastic bits that sit in the end of each tube managed to loosen up. This allowed the end tube to come free from the monopod itself. A better grade plastic material would have likely prevented this as the clip appears quite soft. IF you're extremely gentle this may work out, but I found while twisting it open/free it worked loose quickly.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor quality, Unstable Joints

A fantastic monopod for Micro 4/3

  • Summary: The M50 has already proved to be a great support for my Lumix G5 when out walking. It's light and easily fits into a small backpack. When combined with a lightweight head, it can be left attached to the camera if needed and locked off parallel with the lens. In this configuration, with the Lumix G Vario 100-300mm on the G5, the M50 projects just 20cm beyond the lens and the whole thing weighs 1.3Kg, not bad for a 600mm (35mm equivalent) supported zoom outfit!
  • Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Quickly Deployed

  • Summary: Good build quality and works well as a camera stand. Light weight a boon when trekking. Bit fiddly to extend fully and the cap on the top is a bit of a waste of time.
