Use of a monopod is highly recommended for photographers seeking value for money and versatility. Monopods are specially designed for photographers on the move, for all styles of photography such as fashion or sports.
With a monopod you can support heavy still and video cameras, make instant changes to angle and position in restricted spaces and capture that perfect moment first time. For use in mud or snow, the specially designed rubber foot accessory gives full support by spreading the load.
Made primarily from aluminum alloy, the all-metal construction of the MM 9000 Series gives a feeling of solidity and confidence. Its surfaces are carefully polished twice, so its sections lock firmly and can be released quickly.
Finally, the monopod is anodised to preserve the sheen of the original aluminum, or a pure black finish. The MM 9000 Series reflects the photographer's individuality; it catches the eye, and reflects its own special style.

Will really be better able to rate product after Alaskan cruise/ may-June 09
I bought this product just before we left on a trip to the big island of Hawaii. It worked super and allowed me to take some great shots of lava from Kiluea entering the ocean as the sun set. Plenty of stability with a 300mm lens. Saved a great deal of space and weigth over a tripod on the plane ride. Also doubled as a great walking stick on the lava fields at night. Great product at a great price.
This monopod is a really good value. It is much stronger and solid that I would have expected. It is perfect for use with my 400mm lens.
