Excellent monopod. Great stability and well worth it
“…I’m pairing this Gitzo GM5561T with a Really Right Stuff High Capacity Monopod Head (which I’ve just ordered – along with RRS plates for camera and lens). This setup (with the RRS monopod head) is overkill for my current lens but I’m currently planning on upgrading to a Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM or Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS USM Product Review: Gitzo GM5561T 6X Carbon Fiber Monopod once I save up enough money…which may be a while..photography is expensive!! When I get up to the bigger lenses, I may need to move up to a tripod, but I’ve heard good things about photographers using monopods with these big lenses…so I’m going to try it. I love this monopod…if you need a new monopod and can spare $350, I’d say jump at the opportunity to buy this Gitzo.” – By Eric D. Brown “Technology Consultant”
“Relatively light in weight but stable in use. It balances very well and is easier and more comfortable to use than my previous monopod. The multiple sections make for ease of use in opening and allow low height positioning for those lower perspective shots. The price is high for a monopod in my opinion, but it does work well. I am glad I decided to purchase it, since I now use this monopod far more often than my older one, and that alone makes it worth every penny.” – By wafer “Bill”
