Excellent tool


from Ketchum, Idaho

I use mine with a Manfrotto quick release. Heavy enough to act like a stabilizer when moving about. Great for getting overhead shots.


Solid and easily adjusted


from Gainesville, GA

This monopod is very useful when shooting wildlife or sports events, where a quick setup, adjustment, and fast relocation is necessary. It works great with heavy telephoto lenses, like a Nikon 28-300mm. It maybe a little heavy, but it is built well and the leg clamps are strong. I like to use it in conjunction with Manfrotto tripods withs a different head with quick releases.


Manfrotto 679B Monopod


from Germantown, MD  -  Pro Photographer

Got this monopod to replace earlier version which unfortunately got damaged after almost 15 years of great service. While I am pretty good when shooting at slower speeds, having a support such as this monopod is a definite plus, even with vibration-reduction lenses. When working with longer focal lengths, it is a MUST. I'm happy to say that the new version of this monopod is as well built as the original and has some great additions (especially the rubber grip, extra large mounting base and improved locking clamps.) Will be using this with my D300 and D600, especially when using my Tamron 200-500mm tele and my Nikkor 70-300mm VR zoom lenses. What I love about it is that while it is extremely strong, it is light weight and compact. This a great piece of equipment to have when you need some extra support and don't have the time to set up a tripod. I have quick releases for the cameras and lenses so I can be ready to go very quickly. It also doubles as a neat walking stick when hiking. All in all, a "must have" for any serious photographer.


Excellent Product


from San Juan, PR.  -  Photo Enthusiast

Excellent product. Well constructed. Great value for the price. Holds Sigma 150-500mm lens.


Love the monopod.


from Las Vegas  -  Photo Enthusiast

I find it ideal in situations where a tripod is too conspicuous or bulky--videotaping child's piano recital or school production. Great on the sidelines with a telephoto.


nice monopod


from Deltona, Fla  -  Photo Enthusiast

Being my first real monopod. This one seems to be put together well. Finish is nice and it wont break the bank.

Bogen-Manfrotto Three Section Monopod


from Toledo  -  Photo Enthusiast

The mono pod is great. It is easy to use and locks fast and securely - much better than the twist type locks.


Heavy Duty!


from Woodbury, MN  -  Photo Enthusiast

Perfect for sports photography

Questions about this item:

Wendy B  Can I use this head with a Swarovski 80mm spotting scope?
DAN D  this head comes with the standard camera thread mount and a larger thread for attaching other heads. while i do not know the exact specs of the spotting scope you mention, i have got to think it would.
Shopper  Will this work with my Sony a65x?
MARCELLA A P  It was a Christmas gift for my son and he uses it often for his children's sports activities. I don't even know what equipment he has. He told me what he wanted and where to purchase it and that is what I did.
