I have been looking for a monopod to use in tight spaces, run and gun and thats also light. Most importantly is that it has sturdy feet that are large enough to support your camera gear. I have a Canon 60d, preamp audio box, lav kit and video light on it and it is fine.
My very first carbon fiber anything. So I have nothing to compare it to in that realm. As with all things carbon fiber, it is pricey. My first impression was that it is robust and well made. At around 22" closed, it's not made to fit in a camera bag. But it comes with its own carrying bag.
Had not previously owned anything made by Sirui, and was frankly wary that a fairly inexpensive carbon fiber monopod would be up to the task. I use the monopod in bird photography.
I bought this monopod thinking about having better stability in my videos and the truth that I am very satisfied with this monopod works really well and gives me a lot more moves
I would give it five stars if it came with someone to carry my gear. Being on the short side, this allows me to stand right under the camera, comfortably, and shoot birds in the tops of trees. I haven't noticed a single issue with this monopod. Locks in place nicely, no flexing.
Lightweight, sturdy, easy twist legs. I also use it as an assist walking stick. I use the Peak Design system with the monopod. Here's how it works; The camera is attached via the Peak Design to a small backpack strap.
Nice piece of equipment particularly for the price. Very light. Not 5 stars because the carbon fiber isn't the "cross-hatch" type.
I just purchased a Canon 400 f2.8 lens, and I needed to upgrade my monopod to handle this monster. My previous monopod had thumb latches to adjust the length of each section and over time they would loosen and not hold a heavy lens in place. This monopod doesn't have that problem.
I use it with my Nikon D810 and a Nikkor 80 - 400mm.
I was a bit skeptical when I ordered but for the price I figured I would give it a try. When it showed up I was very impressed. I have only had it for a short time but it gives the impression of being very well made.
