Good Value for the Money

This is a solid well-built monopod and a decent swivel tilt head. Is it the best available monopod and swivel head? Probably not, but it isn't a piece of junk either. Is it a good value? Yes, For [$] , it is a pretty good deal.

Sturdy Construction

By

I brought this with me on a trip to the Outer Banks and found it to be a perfect addition to my gear. Perfect for when you just need that extra bit of stability for shots from a moving vessel. Not intrusive like a tripod in a group function such as Dolphin Watching. This tripod is well built,very sturdy, and easily used. The locks functioned perfectly and never slipped out of position. The only drawback is it's weight, just a little heavy, but not overbearing. I paired this with a Manfrotto tilt head and the two perform wonderful.

Good Choice For This Price Point

By

I have a Manfrotto tripod so when this monopod/head combo went on sale for $79, I snapped it up. The monopod is sturdy and well built. The strap is cloth and strong too. The monopod is heavier than I'd prefer but the weight is not unacceptable. If you want a well made, no frills, inexpensive monopod, then this one is a good choice.

Good solid monopod.

By

Great monopod but the Bogen tilt head which came with it leaves much to be desired. A 234RC tilt head may be a better fit.

Strong but heavy

By

This a solid piece. It's a good monopod. If you plan on walking around a lot with a camera/lens on it I would much more highly recommend forking up more cash for a carbon fiber unit. It makes a difference, trust me.

Hardy, but heavy

By

When I was in a hurry to get a shot set up, it was awkward. It is very sturdy and smoothly clicked out. For my wrist, it was rather heavy. But if you are reasonably strong, I think you won't be disappointed. And for me, I will get the shorter version because I've been caught paying less for flimsy gear - and this is good quality actually.

Compact & sturdy

By

Nice monopod, sturdy and compact, a little on the heavy side for hiking but would double as a tool to defend yourself if you need to!

Worth Every Penny.

By

I needed a compact monopod that would be beefy enough to hold a 7D with battery grip and long lens. This thing is built like a tank. I added a pivot head so I can flip quickly to portrait orientation. I've only started to use it, but can tell in a short amount of time that this was a great purchase. Highly recommended.

Strong, Quick and Easy!

By

I purchased the Manfrotto 680B for a quick and easy Mono, something that can be easily raised and lowered while shooting sports and events. I find the Manfrotto 680B very useful for this purpose! The legs expand and contract quickly and easily and the mount is very sturdy holding a D4 and 70-200VRii. The only issue is the lower leg sometimes requires a little push to deploy, but not an issue for me.

Shopper  Will this work with my Sony a65x?
DOUGLAS M  I don't know about the sony, I use a cannon 40d. This is a very sturdy and well made monopod. I have been very please with mine.
barbara h  Because of physical reasons I have to use my camera with my left hand. So I want to make sure that I am not getting any movement burr. which would you buy monopod or a tripod? Also for a quick release would I need any thing else to go with it or does it come with something for that?
BARRY E  A tripod is steadier but not as portable. I travel with a monopod and it serves the purpose well, but go online to learn how to hold the monopod correctly (braced against your leg) for stability.The Manfrotto 680B Compact 4-Section Monopod is very sturdy, but it does not come with any head at all. you need some sort of head. The 234 Swivel Tilt Head is very study and has a quick release but it is very heavy, so i switched it for the Mini Ball Head 494 which it not a quick release but is more useful.
