The other key on this monopod, even folded up, it is long. The full extension is over six feet; completely closed it is around two and a half feet. The top end is outstanding - I'm six feet two and will be able to shoot verticals at full extension.
These two elements don't seem like much taken alone, but they do add up to a beast of a monopod.
There have been recommendations to use this without a head; I'm not in that camp at all. I think this requires a head. The problem with using the screw included, once you've screwed the camera in and tightened it, the camera is fixed to the monopod; no ability to rotate it, tilt it, or loosen the camera quickly.

The camera will screw right onto the monopod without a head and you can raise or lower it quickly. To stabalize the shot while using as a monopod I suggest placing your hand in (not all the way through)the provided strap so that your hand pulls down on the strap and gripping the well cushioned top section of the monopod. Another added benefit of using this piece is that it makes you look more professional and people will stay out of your way while you get the shot. For wedding/event photography, this is a must have.
The light weight makes it easy to carry around and the quick setup will help when there is nothing to lean on to stabalize yourself. You will need to practice screwing the camera to the monopod if you don't intend on leaving it attached since the first few times it is a little difficult to begin threading the screw in. After a while you'll be an old pro at it.
To muffle the sound the legs make while stored inside the monopod, try some rubber bands wrapped around the top and middle of the legs. If you want to get real fancy, you can buy velcro straps as well. You may have to cut them to length to make sure they fit inside with the legs.

I use this exclusively for 360 imaging... works brilliantly.Published 1 day ago by Richard Craddock
Best mono ever. The self standing part is like no other. It keeps the side to side motion that happens with a lot of mono pods. It is taller and holds more weight than expected.Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer

Great entry level monopod. I have had this for over 4 years and its been great. Do yourself a favor and get the Manfrotto MVM250A version then add the MHXPRO-BHQ2 Ball head. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Vic
It's a little bit big. I understand the need for this because of the free-standing feature, but this monopod is huge. But incredible quality. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Daniel H. Nguyen
