High monopod, but needs a video head
When my equipment gets too heavy, this works really great!! I use this for the still not for the movie, so I purchased ball head and it's just perfect. The great thing about this is, you can take photos with this and when you wanna take it off, just take if off with the quick release plate and the monopod just keep standing there.
Don't bother with any other monopod for video use. This is the best out there, having used others. Three stable feet for rock solid shots, but of course, a tripod is always best. Only downside is that Manfrotto used a *different* mounting plate and the other plates from my 502 don't fit! Whatever were they thinking? Now I have to change baseplates for changing tripods! That is why I only gave it 4 stars. Manfrotto, fix that issue! But other than that, I always travel with it. Essential item in my kit. I use it with both a Canon XF305 and Canon 7D. Works great with both.
Ever since I began my career as an anchor/reporter, director/producer, host and video journalist I've dreamed of a day when the gear would be compact, nimble and light.Read More
