Turns the trick

I needed a monopod to help steady about 12 pounds worth of Nikon D-700 plus a 400mm f-2.8 lens and Wimberley gimbal head. This one is plenty sturdy, the toggle leg releases are lightening quick and solid. Works well.

A Disappointment

I have a disability and have trouble carrying things. I had ordered this with the expection that it would be comaratively light. It wasn't. It seemed to be almost as heavy as my normal Bogen-Manfrotto tripod. I returned it to Adorama and found another monopod that was much lighter-- and just as sturdy--at half the expense of this unit. About the only favorable thing I can add is that the weight allowed for a very sturdy construction...definitely for prfofessional, not personal, use.

Excellant Choice for a Monopod

By

Needed a sturdy monopod for my large telephoto lens. The Manfrotto 681B fit the need perfectly. Easy adjust locks to adjust height. Sturdy enough to backpack into the Mountains. Higly recommend!

Great monopod, but careful with the clip

By

I bought this as a kit with tilting head. The monopod is high quality and very sturdy. Very pleased with the monopod. There is a plastic clip that attaches to the leg which is used for adjusting the nuts on the locking clamps. It just snaps onto the leg and I lost it the first day I used it. I suggest taking this off an keeping it in your camera bag. That's my only complaint.

Excellent, Fits 1/4 and 3/8

By

I didn't know when I bought this but the screw head is 3/8. The outer 3/8 head is spring loaded and drops down to reveal the 1/4 inch head for most cameras. Strong and light weight.

Arm saver!

By

I bought this to shoot a marathon, partially for extra stability, but also because I knew I'd be shooting for 6 or 7 hours with a heavy lens and flash attached. It saved my arms and shoulders. Some of the other guys shooting without support were suffering badly by the end of the event. This is a good solid support that not only held my camera up, but held me up too. It serves as a nice, solid "stick" to lean on. It says it holds 26.5 lbs, but I'm fairly certain I leaned on it with more force than that a few times. The joints lock down very solidly. Yeah, it's aluminum and may transmit vibrations more and be slightly heavier than carbon fiber, but I had no problems with weight or vibration. It feels like carrying around air compared to my tripod (which happens to be carbon fiber). I put it in my tripod bag (cuz it doesn't come with a bag or shoulder strap) and I found myself checking once or twice to make sure it was still in there. I like that there are two joints instead of three like the other similar model. It makes it a little longer when closed, but it opens very quickly. Drop the bottom extension to full, lock it, open the top one and lock it at the right height. The top lock is always in easy reach if you need to make height adjustments as you shoot.

I am a sports photographer and this is a great product. It's strong and I have no problem having a Nikon D700 with a 100-300mm lens on it.

Questions about this item:

Christine V  Do I have a buy a head for it or can I use it as it is?
JIM C  Yes, you will need a head ... which attaches to the camera. For my Nikon D-80, the head attachment screws into the threaded hole on the bottom of the camera. The head lets you quickly slide the camera on and off the monopole. (There is no screw on the top of the monopole to mate with a camera; thus you need the little head attachment.)
Christine V  Hi Jim! Thanks for your answer. But I can't buy the monopod as I live in France, and they won't deliver it to me. So I had to buy in from elsewhere. Have a nice day. Christine
