Most Liked Positive Review

 

Definitely would recommend & buy again!

Shot grand daughters birthday party most recent. Great stable platform 1/4 twist to setup or adjust/take down.Positive locking. Extends one handed. At over $300 for this, the 3351 is $46+/- less with load cap drop to just under 40#. Great addition to your kit if shooting med to large format or heavy camera with long telephotos. I am using the new Kirk Monopod head that has a rated 80# cap. Combo makes for steady shooting. Needed when you're old and shaky like me.

not for bird photography

I use a Nikon f4 500 lens on this monopod. Difficult to hold steady enough for sharp photos in comparision with a tripod. Probably okay for sports action but bird photography requires absolute sharpness. Grub screws in the monopod's headplate do not seem to serve any useful purpose due to their short length and certainly do not secure a video head. I emailed Adorama about this but they simply flick passed me to Gitzo Who have not bothered to respond. (So much for after sales service!!)

Great Monopod

By

Lightweight, stable, steady, Super quality as expected from a $300+ Monopod. Expensive for what it is but they just don't get any better.....

Holy **** this is a great monopod...

By

from Albany, NY  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use this monopod to carry a wimberley wh-200 head version 2 with a 100mm - 400mm lens for nature photography in the Adirondacks, it stick handle the weight with ease and is helpful at stream crossings, climbing rocks, etc. It is worth the extra $.

5 series good for 500mm

By

from placitas, nm  -  Photo Enthusiast

The 5 series is good for long lenses. It is thicker and stronger. Also bought the Big Foot that makes it even more stable.
