VELBRON UP-400DX

BOBM, Crutchfield
6 April 2015
  • Summary: AFTER DISCUSSION WITH CRUCTHFIELD CAMERA DEPARTMENT EXPLAINING THAT I WAS LOOKING FOR A MODESTLY PRICED MONOPOD I DECIDED TO PURCHASE THE VELBRON UP-400DX. I USE THIS WITH SEVERAL CAMERA LENSES THAT WEIGHT UP TO 4 POUNDS. IT IS VERY VERSATILE, LIGHT WEIGHT AND EASY TO USE.
  • Pros: WELL CONSTRUCTED, VERSATILE, EASY TO USE AND HELPS WITH PICTURE STABILIZATION ESPECIALLY WITH HEAVY ZOOMS LENSES.
  • Cons: NONE

Lots of bang for a smaller buck

Side Kick, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Used the monopod first time at a wedding. Very handy if you can't afford a steadicamset up. Made long shoot periods less tiring holding the video camera and still allowed for quick movement to get the perfect shots. I would recommend this product for still or video shots where a tripod is too bulky
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly
  • Cons: Could be more sturdy full

Inexpensive, but good quality

  • Excerpt: Longer extension than expected, not as light as more expensive monopods, but since I use a heavy camera/lens combo, shaving even 10 oz. would be irrelevant. Quick release is adequate. Very inexpensive for the value, looks good too.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Monopie sencillo

Selected, amazon.es

  • Summary: Es muy sencillo y funcional. El cabezal pequeño y con función tilt justa. Lo que no es soportable es la correa añadida. Hace un ruido insoportable, y no es fácil de quitar.

Monod avec tete Fluid

Caputo Raphael, Amazon
22 March 2012
  • Summary: Utilisation pour photo/video de voyage. La tête est fluide et souple. Le réglage de hauteur vraiment rapide et fixe. Le diamètre du tube donne un vrai rigidité. Seul reproche il aurait pu être plus petit une fois replié . résultat visible sur [...
