from New York NY  -  Pro Photographer

It's a monopod, a mini tripod, a tripod .. the only thing it isn't, is an IPOD. If you're a wedding photographer, forget it. If you're a run and gun internet guy, shooting videos where tripods are banned (or require special permits) like NYC ... and you're using light camcorders or dslrs ... this might be for you. A tripod attracts attention. This doesn't. It extends about 5'. With practice, you can open and close it in a minute (do not practice in the field ... it. Run and gun internet videos are great. Stick your DSLR or a kodak zi8 and the world is at your doorstep. Compared to a tripod, people won't know you're videotaping. Just a lone stick. The local heat won't chase you down. PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE ... the first 10 minutes ... the joints stick .. it will be though . you'll think it's broken ... after ... smooth as a baby's ...never mind ... not politically correct. I love it so much, I bought two ... and the in store price is a lot less.


a great multipod

This is a great travel monopod - just a bit heavier.

Great Multipod


from Undisclosed

After reading PixelsByPaul’s review I was a bit skeptical going for that product. PixelsByPaul have some valid points that may apply to some consumer but after testing and using the product for more than a month they do not apply to me. I like to travel. Go everywhere and I do not want to carry heavy equipment around and waste time assembling gear. It is why I was interested in a monopod solution. And then I found this product including a tripod solution. Considering the price tag, the flexibility, versatility, the build quality and how small and light this product is I concluded that there were simply no other product on the market that would match the SONY VCT-MP1. It assembles really quickly and will take no room into my/your DSLR bag. It actually fits perfectly into my TAMRAC VELOCITY 9 and it only takes me a minute to fully assemble the multipod and attach a D600 to it. The flexibility this multipod offers for the price it cost makes it to deserve my 5 stars. Go try it, that cost nothing ^^.

Questions about this item:

Barry Y  I purchased this from Adorama a few months ago and I am enjoying it very much. Question: How can I purchase an additional removable quick-release plate or two for the ball head? I'd like to keep a plate on each of my cameras. Thank you, BeJay NY
JILYANA V  The Sony VCT MP1 Multipod Monopod is really a Velbon tripod. The Quick Release plates are the Velbon QB3 Quick Release Platform The adapter and plate isVelbon QRA-3 Quick Release Adapter with QB-3 PlateThe adapter can be put on other tripods and mounts so you can use the same plate on you camera to quickly swap your camera between tripods and mounts. I use them all the time and they are small, light and quick to swap between tripods.
Barry Y  Hi Jilyana, Thank you for your answer, it was spot on! I easily found confirming photo/specs on line. The item is unfortunately Out of Stock at Adorama, so I actually ordered from another (on-line) source. BeJay NY
