This is a beast of a monopod that will last a lifetime. If you are waffling between the carbon fiber monopods (Manfrotto 694CX Carbon Fiber 4 Section Monopod (Black) or the Manfrotto 695CX Carbon Fiber 5 Section Monopod (Black)) and this one, this monopod is way heavier than you might imagine. The big difference, weight capacity - the carbon fibers will hold eleven pounds and this one will hold over twenty five pounds. If I were a more casual non-sports photographer and not considering some heavy photography equipment, I'd go with the carbon fiber (your back and arms will thank you later).

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. That screw is fixed solidly to the monopod body.

In my mind there were really only two choices for heads,

I got this monopod because not every place allows tripods. Many museums and other places you may want to go to take photos don't want you bringing in a huge tripod and setting up in front of a piece of artwork (that is if they even allow photos). I have found that many places will allow monopods. I shoot a Canon 40D with the battery pack. I am able to use the 28-135mm f/3.5 USM with no problem in stability. I have not tried it with the 70-200mm f/2.8L USM but that is a lot of weight so I might not get that brave.

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.

Happy shooting.

I really like the fact that this product can be used as a mono or tri pod. Sturdy stand. Tripod legs are metal and small in diameter so if on rough ground can be "stuck" into ground to make sturdy. Only complaint is that the tripod legs rattle inside the pole when hiking.

I have an older, silver version of this monopod (from about 2000) and I love it. It is easier to carry around than a tripod, and when you need the extra stability you can always unscrew the base and let out the "feet". Just make sure you never let the monopod free stand or you may find yourself looking to purchase a new camera\lens. And for those of us who have found ourselves in some less than ideal environments with expensive camera equipment, the monopod makes an excellent "deterrent" or club. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is because the base can become difficult to screw\unscrew if it is used in an extremely sandy area, such as at the beach. I had to then take the garden hose and thouroughly rinse the base and feet of mine of for several minutes, dry them with a rag, then apply a light coating of grease to the threads. A minor inconvience.

This Pod is well built and will last a lifetime. A bit heavy but so is my gear and the weight helps me in steadying my Nikon D700 with a Nikon 200mm or longer telephoto lens and that includes a battery pack ta-boot. Truly a great Pod for better shots on the go! The fold out legs rattle a bit when stored inside the Pod but I fixed that with a very thin velcro strip wrapped around them. If you want the best, just get it!!

While I've only used this monopod a few times, I'm already in love with it! The Manfrotto self-standing unit is a highly stable monopod with the added bonus of a realtively stable tripod stand for those times when you need the extra stability but don't have easy access to a full-sized tripod. Obviously those three little legs lack the stability of a full-sized tripod, but they add a large amount of balance that you just can't get with the monopod itself. If I have one complaint it would be that it takes quite a few turns to unscrew the legs and re-attach them. But, that's really only a issue if you're losing your light or your subject.
