Summary: I use this as a backup, and also as a mount for my litepanel. (I have an assistant carry it behind me and it makes for a very convenient, sturdy piece of multipurpose equipment. ) The locks are a little hard to open, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, and the telescoping leg needs a bit of effort to work at times. The mounting plate is decent and locks well. Good for a smaller SLR or video camera. Also comes with a particularly nice padded case.
Summary: The weight for this monopod is listed at 7 lbs. This must be a typo.It is very light,well made and designed.Quick release plate is very secure.My b-roll shooter loves using it.When collapsed it adds a counter-weight for steadier hand held shots while moving.
Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
