560B lighter monopod for DSLR video

By

from New Jersey shore  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Lighter than DV monopod and does not have pan head, but that makes it easier to carry and use both for stationary shots with the feet, quick moving shots as a monopod or as a handy quick steady cam substitute for casual video.

I love the product.

By

from Harlingen, Texas  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use the monopod with a small video camera. It's very lightweight and opens quickly. I don't like the tripod legs too much as they snap when you move from one location to another, but I like it's versatility.

Awesome Monopod

By

from Jacksonville, FL  -  Professional

I bought this monopod to use on a trip to Beijing. It was amazing. The base allows for smooth pans and the feet are very strong. I used it with a Panasonic HDC-SD1 camera. The only downside is it's length when it is folded up but this was never a problem for me.

Questions about this item:

Joe F  Hi,will this monopod hold a 150mmto600mm tamron lens? So you don't have to carry a full tripod around. Thank's Joe
ATRAIU G  It will hold it fine, and should work fine for photography. Ever see those guys with the huge canon lenses at NFL games? They seem to me to be the ones without the three legs at the bottom, and they do great. But would be too shaky IMO at those distances for any video work.
Joe F  Thanks Atraiu
