It's easy to spend a ton of money on a good monopod. And if you are sporting, for example, a Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L lens, you probably want to go for the industrial strength unit. But...

This item is well built and provides enough support for large DSLR and even fairly large collared telephoto lenses (I use it with a Canon 5D Mark II and the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM).

The legs are slotted so they stay straight when you extend them. The clamps are sturdy and hold the legs tightly extended - I have never had them slip. The grip is comfortable and welcome on those days when you're outside and it's cold. The tip has an adjustable foot that provides either a rubber grip or pointed metal spike.

There are a couple things I did to improve this already value-packed monopod though it is perfectly useful as-is.

1. I added a small ball head. This enables me to adjust the angle of the camera - Manfrotto 494 Ball Head Replaces Manfrotto 484

2. I put another c-clip and a swivel onto the strap so that it would not tangle. Only one is needed - this is an example of the type I used South Bend Interlock Swivels - Size 14 - 50 Pack

3. Since I don't use the metal spike and I spend a lot of time on the gym floor with this, I added a furniture leg tip to cover the spike and add a removable grip that I can replace when it wears out. It also keeps the spike covered so that I don't damage the gym floor.

I've been shopping around for a mono-pod, comparing brands, quality and prices. The mono-pod I'm looking for must have these: compact, light weight, rigid enough to support my DSLR (Canon 550D w 18-135mm lens), extend above 60 inches and not cost an arm and a leg. I'm very happy with my purchase. The Vivitar mono-pod met all by specifications. Very good value for money.

Versatile, I use this when in nature for taking pictures, as a walking stick, also, if an animal came at me, I wouldn't be afraid to use it as a club. It's really solid a sturdy. Nice carrying case too.

I'll just say that among the monopods out there that are under $20, the Vivitar VIV-VT-67 is a fantastic monopod for its price and quality.

I. INSIDE THE BOX

Inside the box is a Vivitar Monopod with a bag. The monopod has three levers for extension and has the rubber footing on the bottom that can be twisted up to reveal the spike (for outdoor use).

II. COMPARISONS

Compared to the Dolica Monopod, they are the same size. In fact, they look very much the same with the levers having different line length but everything from top to bottom is the same with the exception of the grip. If you want a thicker grip, then the Dolica is perfect. If you want a thinner grip, then go for the Vivitar. I prefer the thicker grip to hold on to when using my camera.

As for the Opteka, I prefer the connections of the Dolica and Vivitar to my Pistol ball head grip but in terms of build, the Dolica is the better of the three because of the build and the thicker grip. But if you prefer a thinner grip, then the Vivitar monopod is what you want and is just as great!

III. EXPERIENCE

My setup is using a Canon T3i on an Opteka Sidewinder pistol grip using a variety of lenses and this monopod has held on to my equipment PERFECTLY! I have extended it high...but had no need to shoot that high yet. I have used it while up on the short ladder but still, no need to have it extend to the maximum. Also, I've learned from certain Tripods that you go to maximum, you can have some breakage. I haven't had that problem with the Vivitar monopod but if you don't need to use the maximum, then don't. Otherwise if you need more height and will be using a heavy lens, then you may want to go with a thicker, better built monopod (and of course, more expensive).

I bought this to replace my lost Dolica monopod with very similar specs, and after reading a lot of good comment about this Vivitar which say that Vivitar and Dolica has the same build and quality, the only different is the thin handle vs thick handle of Dolica.
But the truth is different:
1. Build: bad build with ugly and cheap plastic parts, the metal pike is unpolished.
2. Quality bad: the clamps are sturdy but work not smoothly as Dolica as you lock/unlock. It is very difficult to put the clamps into position.

In general, the Dolica monopod is far better that this. It is too bad that now I am not in the state to return the Vivitar. I have to keep it but I will not recommend it to anybody.

I picked up this monopod to try to reduce the amount of clutter & space my camera gear uses when I travel. So far I can't say I'm completely convinced it was worth purchasing. The amount of space it uses isn't much less than my tripod. Setup time is obviously quicker, but I'm finding very few times where I use it rather than a tripod other than outdoor hikes.

The product itself is fine. There's no release head but otherwise it's unremarkable with not much to complain about. It extends and closes up easily. I added a Professional Mini Ball Head Camera Mount so that I point the camera up and down easily without having to tilt the entire pole - used for looking down off a bridge or canyon wall.
