I added this monopod to my gear 6 months ago in order to be able to do butterfly macro with speed, and it hasn't disappointed. It has one feature than no other monopod has which is the ability to raise and lower with one hand - which makes it the fastest monopod to operate that exists.

I bought the 685B and, upon attempting to use it for the first time, I found that the lower extension tube would not lock in any extended position. I called Manfrotto and eventually got someone to call me back to discuss the problem.

As it is a monopod it has no lens image quality. The rubber foot is easy to detach accidentally, so I've secured my with a line (simply drilled through the rubber foot, stuck a sturdy line through it and made a not on the bottom of the rudder foot and secured the other end around the shaft itself.

Liviano, rpido, fcil de llevar y muy prctico. Lo mejor es que sea fluido as al bajar no cae de golpe.

I saw this monopod on a Tony Northrup YouTube video, and knew it was what I needed. Great item. So much sturdier than the little "toy" (even though it was still a Manfrotto) that I had bought several years ago at @.Love the little foot plate, and the pistol grip to help take it up and down.

Good design and great to use. No hassle having to adjust the height without having to grapple with twist or clip locks, simply squeeze the trigger and press the release button and adjust as necessary.<br />The downside is the flimsy 'flip out' foot (made of plastic!

I bought this to be able to quickly set up a monopod to support photographing birds in flight with a long lens. I'm impressed how much faster this monopod allows me to set up and take down than any monopod I've used before. A joy!

I bought this as a Christmas present for my husband. It is very easy to use as you can work it and adjust it with one hand and still keep your camera secure. We are going on a big trip next summer to the Mediterranean and will be taking lots of pictures.

Really well made, solid construction. does not feel like it will fall apart with use. It is a fair old weight to carry any distance being the only downside.

I've used this monopod and its predecessor with a 3oo and a 400 2.8 for more than 7 years. It works. If you stand and kneel and stand and kneel as you shoot, the one-handed height adjustment is great. Like all good tools, if you use this one regularly, it needs regular maintenance.
