Not being a pro, I'm not sure why anyone would need to spend a lot more money for a monopod. Works great so far.

Comments about Bogen Imaging Bogen - Manfrotto 790B Modo Minopod with a Hybrid (Photo & Video) Head:

I use it for photos while hiking. It works OK but flimsy as a walking stick.
My main complaint is that the screw on top will not fit a Manfrotto camera mount.

Comments about Bogen Imaging Bogen - Manfrotto 790B Modo Minopod with a Hybrid (Photo & Video) Head:

short enough and easy to carry around.Great size, it should be the best... I think.
However, it's too thin to use for ISO reduction. This product is not strong enough for DSLR. It will bend and bounce back a little bit when you press the shutter if your are using DSLR.
If you are using DC~~ this one is perfect

Comments about Bogen Imaging Bogen - Manfrotto 790B Modo Minopod with a Hybrid (Photo & Video) Head:

Can be used as a walking stick and still be ready to perform its primarily function of camera holding/stability.

Great product, easy to use, and quick release tabs are better than twist lock ones.

Great stocking stuff idea for the outdoors type, too!
