Never did find more than the one photo of this Monopod on the Internet so thought I would upload some since it arrived here..

Time will tell of course, but it does seem sturdy and the locks are very tight to start with etc. The mini ball head, while not the quality of one costing what the whole monopod costs.. seems to be capable and holds my heavy DSLR with grip firmly.
Again, we'll see what some wear does to it and edit this then.

Update after some use..

Well, working very well and clamps are still nice and tight, socket and ball are also doing just fine.

I find that I'm not going to leave the monopod screwed in my battery grip while I walk to next shot etc. It seems to put extra pressure on the grip to camera mount that you don't want.
But this is nothing that this Canon product does that another will not however. No problem if the camera is setting on the monopod, but best not to hold horizontal etc.

Update 8/06

Price seems to push high now and then.. my review is based on a price of $30 ,other brands come into consideration at $50 and up.

Canon unit is still working just fine and giving no signs of wear or trouble, I'm still happy with it for the price I paid.

Update; July 8,2007

This monopod is still doing well and I have no complaints.

Update; Nov 2009

Showing some wear but still working as it should and no reason to replace it.

I love this monopod! I'm a person who uses my camera nearly every day (Canon EOS Elan 7 35mm). This item is one of my favorite accessories for the camera -- so much easier to travel with than a tripod! It's sturdy, but lightweight, easy to use and is very portable. I am mostly using the monopod to support my camera with an enormous, extremely heavy 500mm telephoto lens attached. I'm actually able to hold that huge lens steady with just the monopod -- not one blurry photo! I've dragged it all over the Bluegrass of Kentucky ... across fields of horse farms, and even to the racetrack. I've taken it out into the wilderness to photograph elk. I had to keep closing it down and extending it out every time we got in and out of the vehicle, which was often. Also recently traveled all over Arizona with it to the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Canyon De Chelley, etc. I was constantly opening and closing it, taking literally hundreds of photos (about 14 rolls) with no problems at all. I'm wondering if the other reviewer just got a defective one. I wish I'd bought one of these years ago! I highly recommend it.

I purchased this monopod a couple of weeks ago now because I am shooting a Canon 20D with the Canon EF 100mm-400mm f/4.5 L IS lens. I also purchased the BG-E2 Battery Grip and the E1 Hand Grip thinking those would be enough to help steady the camera enough with this L lens on the front. I was wrong. I still love my hand grip for security reasons with my other lenses, and my battery grip I can't say enough about. This monopod, however, is the ABSOLUTE BEST. My shots have improved to the point where I have literally no blurry pictures at all. I have shot well over 5,000 frames using this monopod and I have only had maybe 10 shots that were blurry.

I attach the monopod to the ring mount on the lens and just start firing away with absolute confidence that my shots are going to be perfect. And they are. The monopod can handle the weight in the horizontal mode just fine. The vertical mode is a bit weak with the support, but it's not that big of a deal.

I stand 6'4" tall and the monopod is the perfect shooting height for me. I don't have to bend over at all to look through the eye-piece on the camera.

This is a PERFECT addition to my equipment and I am loving this.

I bought this monopod about 3 weeks ago after reading the reviews here. I'm not sure if I got a defective unit but I've had these problems from the gitgo:

-I noticed the 2 lower sections will not open and close smoothly, they would get stuck about 2-3 inches from the lock and you'd need force to expand/retract them. Very interestingly, if the section right above the one I'm trying to expand/retract is unlocked then the operation is smooth and flawless!
-The ballhead does not support my Nikon D80 and lightest lens (18-55mm) a less than 2 lbs combo, which is much lighter than the 4.4 lbs weight limit indicated in the specs. The camera just slumps in one direction or another regardless of how hard I try to make sure the ballhead is locked tightly.

Again, it might have been a defective unit, but I thought I'd point my observations out anyway. I wanted to buy this from Amazon, it wasn't in stock, it was sitting in my shopping cart and when it became available Amazon bumped the price to $40+, so I went elsewhere and got it for $30.

This monopod looked well designed -- comfortable grip, light weight, extra length, easy-to-use swivel head, very compact. Unfortunately, after just 3 uses, the bottom lever just snapped off with hardly any pressure. The plastic is too brittle to support the pressure of holding the leg in place. Other users have noted this defect as well. I can't see any way to repair this. Adorama's return policy requires you to return defective products within 14 days, with complete packaging intact. I really wish this monopod had been made of more quality materials for the levers -- it really was perfect in every other way. Now it's unusable.
