Top Customer Reviews
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 cameras with a 1000mm lens. Nevertheless a careful pro who occassional 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 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. Except for a green case, the Opteka MP100 67" Professional Heavy Duty Photo / Video Monopod is absolutely identical to the Dolica. Exactly the same monopod is sold under the "Digital Pro" brandname.Read more ›
I like this monopod but the seller, not so much for now.
Dolica (the maker) is misleading Amazon shoppers. They are now selling a completely separate new model, Dolica WT-1010, which is fine, but they merged the new model into the reputation of the older model to inflate the rating and deceive shoppers. Amazon is also part to blame for trying to make it easy by consolidating similar models of numerous electronics into a single page, which in turn combines reviews too and makes all the more confusion.
Go in your search bar and type Dolica WT 1010 and you will see the newly released monopod has a 4.5 rating from 733 reviews. Except it doesn't. All of those reviews apply for the older model and anyone inclined to buy would believe the new model is highly rated, but it isn't. You claim something, but it isn't so, that's fraud isn't it? You look up Manfrotto monopods and see not even a company like them has to resort to such actions.
Due to this, I am downgrading my rating by one star. If the situation changes or the maker provides a satisfactorily response I can just as easily upgrade to before, but not today.
Jan 23, 2015 edit:
Yep still here. Not much as changed since my last revision. A monopod is pretty self explanatory.
Oh. I fixed the loose and shakey tripod head thing whatever you call it (tripod head on a monopod, what). Turns out, the rubber grip, if you slide it downwards it reveals some screws that hold the head together. There's three holes when I checked there were only two screws so either someone in the PRC short changed me or during my photo laden adventures in the past 2.5 years I lost a screw in a place long forgotten. Probably the latter. Oh well, I'll just buy another if I have to.Read more ›
Since I have never used any of this type of equipment before, I had no idea how to attach my camera, or how to actually use this device. When it arrived, I was more than extremely pleased to see that it is very user-friendly with no fancy "bells and whistles" to figure out.
After I started using it in the field, I became more pleased with how easy it is to use, how light-weight it is, and the quality of the construction. While I am interviewing the homeowner, I can tuck this little monopod (collapsed) under my left arm, and still hold a clipboard and make notes during the conversation, as well as hand the homeowner the necessary paperwork, shake their hand, etc. While I am actually taking the photographs, I can adjust the height according to what I need to photograph, from the foundation to the roof, with the snap of a couple of the clips. I attach my camera to the pole as soon as I get in my car in the morning, and it stays on the pole the entire day, laying on the passenger seat while I am driving and the camera is plugged in to refresh the charge.
I would recommend this monopod to anyone who needs to photograph anything taller than they are and/or to people who need it just for stability of the camera. I use it for both, and could not be happier. It is small and lightweight enough to carry around all day, and adaptable to most conditions. Yes, it would be nice if the head would tilt, but that's not usually an issue. When I need a tilt, I lean it back and forth to get the correct angle.
