Good and easy to use


from PR  -  Pro Photographer

High monopod, but needs a video head


Great Monopod


from New York, NY  -  Semi-pro Photographer

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.

Best monopod for video


from Pacific NW  -  Pro Photographer

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.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  How much weight can it hold?
JIM C  I can't say a specific number of pounds, but can say that the monopole is very substantial ... and the weight is vertical so it would not be putting much stress on the monopole ... I'd say if you can lift it with one hand this monopole would not object...
Federico P  Can I unscrew the Camera Plate Adapter and put a Manfrotto ball head?
L D M  Here is an email directly to me from a Manfrotto Help Desk in regards to replacing the plate and head hdjira 4:01 PM (4 hours ago) Hello, The quick release adapter on the 562B-1 does come off. So you are then free to put whatever head you want on the monopod. Best regards, Help Desk Vitec Group Imaging Division Helpdesk
Anastasia D  In it replaceable head?
NATHAN P  I would buy a 501 quick plate adaptor so it's easy to swap from tripod to monopod
