handy mono-tri pod
“I really like the fact that this product can be used as a mono or tri pod. Sturdy stand. Tripod legs are metal and small in diameter so if on rough ground can be “stuck” into ground to make sturdy. Only complaint is that the tripod legs rattle inside the pole when hiking.” – By E. Post
A must have for pro’s
“I got this monopod because not every place allows tripods. Many museums and other places you may want to go to take photos don’t want you bringing in a huge tripod and setting up in front of a piece of artwork (that is if they even allow photos). I have found that many places will allow monopods. I shoot a Canon 40D with the battery pack. I am able to use the 28-135mm f/3.5 USM with no problem in stability. I have not tried it with the 70-200mm f/2.8L USM but that is a lot of weight so I might not get that brave…” – By Homeward Bound
“Used this on our Tennesse vacation. We got some pics not otherwise able to get without a tripod or monopod. I do wish they had designed it so the legs dont rattle around when not out and also a faster deployment would be nice. But I am happy with it and will give it its use. “ – By A. Beckstedt
“I have an older, silver version of this monopod (from about 2000) and I love it. It is easier to carry around than a tripod, and when you need the extra stability you can always unscrew the base and let out the “feet”. Just make sure you never let the monopod free stand or you may find yourself looking to purchase a new camera\lens. And for those of us who have found ourselves in some less than ideal environments with expensive camera equipment, the monopod makes an excellent “deterrent” or club.” – By J. Harris
Best Monopod I have ever owned
“This Pod is well built and will last a lifetime. A bit heavy but so is my gear and the weight helps me in steadying my Nikon D700 with a Nikon 200mm or longer telephoto lens and that includes a battery pack ta-boot. Truly a great Pod for better shots on the go! The fold out legs rattle a bit when stored inside the Pod but I fixed that with a very thin velcro strip wrapped around them. If you want the best, just get it!! “ – By Kent M. Whitney
Choices Choices Choices, almost too many
“This monopod, capped with the tilt head is a formidable camera device. The tilt allows very fast switching between horizontal and vertical framing – amazing how fast and simple that movement is. Adjustment up and down is silky smooth, the latches are firm and positive. The grip is massive; I have a large hand and appreciate a large grip. The hand loop is a bit odd, I’m sure I’ll get used to using that. The triangle legs are a nice addition. When it starts raining and I need to pull the monsoon cover over my camera, those three little legs will be a lifesaver. They are also excellent rest for this heavy monopod…” – By Daniel G. Lebryk
