The Velbon Ultra Stick V50 5-Section Aluminum Monopod is an extremely lightweight camera support that extends to a maximum height of 61". Featuring Velbon's patented twist & release leg locking system, the monopod can be extended with a single twist of the wrist.
The V50 is ideal for situations that require mobility as well as sturdy camera support, such as nature and sports photography. The aluminum monopod weighs just 0.78 lb and contracts to a very portable 14.8". The Ultra Stick V50 features a 1/4"-20 screw at the top for attachment to a head or directly to a camera.

Most photographers believe that monopods are vastly inferior to tripods. Partly because it is true for specialized situations like night photography, but mostly because they don't know how to use a monopod.. Over the sixty five years that I have been a serious photographer, I have owned two dozen tripods and monopods. The Velbon V 50 is simply the best of the lot.
