Compared to my other Manfrotto monopod: + deploys quickly: much easier and faster than opening and closing three latches - feels slightly less substantial - the fully closed length is noticably longer Gotcha: arrives new with a thin film of grease/oil on the legs, which is annoying to get on your...

I've had this monopod for six months, and I just love it. When doing shoots, really don't have to stop for long to change heights when shooting different vantage points. Fewer missed shots. Less distracting to others, when working in a theater setting.

  • +

    easy one handed adjustments, infinite adjustment, fast adjustment,

  • -

    easy to loose foot pad, heavier than most others

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.

  • +

    Instant height-adjustment

  • -

    A little heavy

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.

I expected this monopod to be the answers to my needs - However, it turns out that it is a major hazzle to take along in the suitcase - and you cannot take it along on air travel as carry-on luggage.

  • +

    smooth and easy length adjustment

  • -

    the minimum length exceeds the diagonal stretch of a standard suitcase

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!

As a Real Estate Photographer, my Manfrotto monopod is in my hand nearly every day. This is my second in three years - I wore the first one out. Biggest challenge is replacing the foot if you lose it (which can happen easily when tramping shooting landscape around up-scale homes or on large...

I had one of these that I bought in 2013 but lost it. I didn't need to check out anything else before buying another one. If you want a mobile monopod that makes one-handed operation easy, then this is the one for you!

I lost my old one after 5 years. Didn't hesitate to buy another immediately! Best Monopod ever!
