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: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight
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 [...
