The Pro1 weighs 1.5 pounds and the Nikon D200 3.5 pounds.
Here are the features the Opteka MP100 has that I consider important:
1. it's amazingly light weight
2. it's very rigid (considering the light weight) because the round leg has a locking channel
3. it's sturdy enough to use as a light walking stick
4. the quick action lever leg lock system means it adjusts height quickly which I find very important
5. the carrying case with strap keeps it from banging against another metal object when traveling
6. the 67" length allows me to set the camera at eye level (I'm 6' tall) even if I'm up on a step
7. folded up and attached to the camera, it can be lik a pistol grip
I've been using it for 6 months now and I'm very pleased it. I fold it up but leave it attached to the camera when I'm walking around, so it is always available.
At $13 it is a fantastic buy.
This is a full-size monopod--not a gorilla of a monopod, but full-size. Ironically the very same monopod is sold under different brandnames as a "light weight", as a "heavy duty", and as a "professional" monopod--it is NONE of these. Given that it is actually an average weight (at best), light-duty, amateur monopod, it is an excellent design, and a very good value.
The monopod is NOT "professional grade", meaning that it probably will NOT stand up to abuse, and/or constant use, and/or a heavy camera with a 1000mm lens. Nevertheless a careful pro who occasional uses a monopod for a small to medium-size camera (or is careful to balance larger loads) would probably be very pleased with it. It does everything a monopod should do, and does those things well. It operates quickly and easily, and is very sturdy, proving solid support. Read the 1-star reviews carefully, but take them "with a grain of salt."
IDENTICAL MONOPODS WITH OTHER BRANDNAMES (may be cheaper)
Except for a green case, the Opteka is absolutely identical to the Dolica WT-1003 67-Inch Lightweight Monopod. Except for a very slightly different grip, the Dolica is absolutely identical with the Vivitar VIV-VT-67 67-Inch Monopod or the AmazonBasics AmazonBasics 67-Inch Monopod. Exactly the same monopod is sold under the "Digital Pro" brandname.Read more ›
What happned was the screw and the rest of the unit had discoupled. The unit could be turned freely on the camera (now with the screw attached) but there was no way to unscrew the unit from the camera. The whole unit just turned whichever way you twisted it, clockwise or anticlockwise,
I had to resort to cutting into the unit to expose the screw. Then I could manage to get a grip on the screw to remove it. The process took me about 30 minutes and all the time it was at some risk to damaging the camera. I will try to post some pictures.
I notice that this unit is not available on Amazon currently.
I would not recommend this unit to anyone and I would be rather wary of products under the brand Opteka.
Those who own this unit should be very careful. DO NOT try to secure it too tightly to your camera. You may find it impossible to remove it later.
I will try to get a refund.
