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.
Combined with a quick release attachment for my camera it also doubles as walking stick, which is very handy when negotiating slippery stream beds.The pan head seems a bit fragile being made of plastic but seems to hold my less than 2 pound camera/lens combination quite well and it rotates smoothly. I don't know how durable it is but so far so good. The monopod also strikes a nice balance between weight and stability. I'm satisfied
1 Year Update:
The ball head is getting a little loose and requires quite a bit of torque to keep the camera level. This is using an ultra-zoom. For landscape mode it's still fine but turning the camera on its side for portrait view shots it tends to flop. I do use it often but am looking to buying a metal head model especially now that I'm transitioning to a DSLR with a hefty zoom. The ball head on this is not robust enough to handle a two plus pound camera, though I don't imaging that this monopod was ever intended for that use.
It is very well built and truly deserves the Canon logo on it.
However, I am a night phtography fan, and to be honest I have discovered this hobby for only two years till now so you can't say I'm a pro, I bought this monopod to test and see if it will help me get rid of my heavy tripod. Here are my results:
1- Portability: monopod 10/10 - tripod 3/10
2- Weight: mono: very light - tri: well it depends on which brand and price tag you got, but for sure this monopod is a lot lighter than any tripod out there.
3- Steadiness for long exposure shooting: mono: 8/10 if you are sticking the monopod between guard rails or leaning on a wall for example but 2/10 if you are trying to hold it vertically still especially if it is extended to your height which is most of the cases, so you still need to make it lean on something to get very good still photo if your exposure is 2 seconds or more, for less than 2 seconds exposures, I am far better off without the monopod by kneeling on the ground and resting one elbow on the other knee and the other elbow on my chest while using an Image Stabalizer than using a monopod - tripod: 10/10
4- Size when retracted: mono 9/10 (nice copmact and easy to store anywhere, heck it fits in the magazines pocket at the back of the drivers seat in your car) - Tripod: 6/10
The spongy part where you are supposed to be carrying the pod from or holding it when shooting is excellent material too, I am telling you, Canon spared nothing on this pod, I am really surprised it's so cheap! Honestly this thing should be sold for at least $50!
The locks are excellent, it takes some strong fingers to lock them in place but hey i don't mind as long as this guarantees a strong traction so the pod won't fall on its self. And by the way i tested it by pressing hard on it with my hands, it didn't fold, rather i was almost going to break it so i stopped :)
When you release a lock, the traction and resistance when you pull or push the pod is excellent, it is not very tough nor very easy, if the lock is released and you point the pod downwards, it will not extend by its self but you easily can pull it with your hand.
I have seen some monopods in a shop dealing with photographing equipment, I actually "physically" inspected two of them as the store had one mono/tri pod from each brand and model on display for customers to test. I didn't like them at all, they felt so cheap and you can easily bend them with both hands when fully extended. Then i found this Canon monopod on amazon and with its price I decided to gamble on it: as a photographer enthusiast, when i received this monopod, it felt like turning the $40 spent on it to $80 in a slot machine! You won't regret it.
I have been using this monopod for a long time and about once a week, it is ALWAYS in my car, i love it size! Wear and tear is minimal, it's excellent quality. You still feel the resistant force of air being sucked in or blown out when retracting the monopod short or extending it long. The locks are not as hard in locking they became softer, but still the monopod doesn't fall into its self even if you press on it, the locks are doing a good job!
I just got them tonight, so I have no info beyond this, but since this is what I really wanted to know about them, I figured you might want to know, too.
