Review of Flashpoint PX202 -Extender Mon

I own two and I just bought one for a friend. I love it because I can now include myself in photos and it is easy to carry and easy to use.

weak head for light cameras only!

The problem I have with this is the head isn't strong enough to hold my Rebel T2i DSLR camera. It's made for very lightweight or cheap cameras. Bummer it's not more solid.

handy tool

By

from monterey  -  Photo Enthusiast

-great to get up or down or around to get a shot that you can't otherwise get into position for -small, light, easy to take along -the above advantages start to become disadvantages at about the weight range of my Canon G12. With more weight than that I believe it would be too unstable. It didn't claim to be a magic wand, though in some conditions it seems like one.

About what you'd expect for the price

By

from Seattle, WA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Of course you don't expect these types of things to hold a DSLR but this one is particularly bad. It's cheaply constructed, and doesn't hold much more than the lightest of point and shoots. I wouldn't even trust a small mirroless camera on it as the slightest amount of weight makes the camera flip upside down. The screw mount is also very poor quality. For just a little bit more, you can get other mini-monopods like this that are much higher quality.

Not good for what I need it to do...

By

from Dallas, TX  -  Casual Photographer

I use this to hold my GoPro camera to do underwater shots. The thing that I like least about this product is the weakness of the swivel at the head of the wand. It is hard to keep my camera stable to get my shot.

Works as advertised!

By

from Scottsdale, AZ  -  Pro Photographer

Seems to be very well built so far. The 1/4" screw head is made of plastic so I'll be curious how well it holds up, but so far so good.

It holds the camera great. Having trouble with timer on camera. I will get it working but it does hold the camera fine.

Nice Addition

By

Nice to take pictures of yourself or your pets if they are shy. Hard to keep the end your holding out of the picture.

Flashpoint Extender Monopod

By

from Arlington, TX.  -  Casual Photographer

I added a GoPro tripod mount adaptor and used both my GoPro and Extreme Cam with this product. It worked well, but did pick up a bit of audio transfer noise which sounded like a creeking sound when the tripod was turned by hand. Other than that, it has worked very well and is easy to use and carry. I really enjoy using it, expecially when shooting video of street vendors and outside events.
