Even Greater with a Ball Plate!

I also bought a ball hinged plate (same Manufacturer) to put on top of the monopod, which gives my shots a lot of different interesting angles. I like the fact that the monopod is automatic, because I have severe arthritis and it is very hard to put together too many things and takes more time for me, which might cost me a lost shot.

Manfrotto 334B Automatic Monopod - Black

I own two of these. One quit working and I bought another. I have been extremely carefull to keep water out of the bottom. I have sealed and taped it. I have never owned any other monopod but I wish there were one out there which would work consistantly. I am still using the second one I bought. Either I am just not proficient at operating it or it works inconsistantly. I am a nature photographer and use it to support my camera as I stand in the pond.

This was the first monopole that I ever used (bought first one 20+ years ago. When I lost mine in Hurricane Sandy, I did not hesitate to buy it again.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
MARK M  Great value
DJ Q  What is the major difference between this model 334B and the pro version 685B?
WILLIAM P  My wife has the 685B. She likes it, especially the foot extension to keep the base in place. I bought the 334B, which I love! Compared to my wife's model, it is lighter and easier to use. I particularly like the up-and-down control in the grip. In the 334B, pressure makes the head move. In the 685B, you have to press an extra lever to move the head. I've mounted a Nikon 80-400mm lens on my monopod with excellent control shooting wildlife. The head has never moved accidently. The rubber base always keeps the 'pod in place. Even use the 334B as a walking stick!
Shopper  What does it mean, 'automatic'?
VALENTIN D  Automatic means that you don't have to tighten or loosen any adjustment screws, you just squeeze the handle and it goes up or down, this thing works on air pressure like a hand pump, I had it for 2 years it worked fine but now it is stuck, maybe because it got wet, since I shot a football game in the rain, so I don't know if I will take it appart myself or send it in to get it repaired, I hope this helps
