This monopod is great. It's not super expensive and it gets the job done. I really didn't want an expensive one because I knew I wouldn't use it tons (though given how much I'm pleased with this, I might now). The extension to almost 6 feet is great for whenever you need to see above crowds, or anywhere you need to raise the camera/camcorder high enough to get that shot.
The picture doesn't show it, but there are three clips at the bottom where it telescopes. You have to release all three to adjust the height, which makes it even better to adjust to just the right height because you can just snap certain clips into place once you've found the position on that part of the base.
Overall, for the price, this monopod is pretty nice. Metal tip on the base, foam grip at the top with a lanyard to keep it attached to your wrist in case you lose grip and it falls. This is definitely going to help me with my photography, especially in areas where I need to crouch down or have a difficult angle where I need something to hold it steady. It's great for when I use digital zoom, which is more sensitive to slight movement.
Absolutely would recommend for those on a budget.
I noticed one reviewer had a problem with the attachment screw. I hope that was just an unfortunate anomaly. Both of ours have worked fine, and my husband is one of those people who over-tightens almost everything.
A monopod is awkward if you need to turn your camera for portrait orientation; unless you detach your camera first, you'll hit anything and anyone to your side. Done that! It's really meant for steadiness in landscape mode.
This Targus product has a pivot point on the foot that extends slightly beyond the level of the rest of the foot. That makes rotating it on hard surfaces quick, and very smooth. On softer terrains, the rest of the foot (hard flexible rubber with grip bands) holds steadily. We like to take pictures at the shore (Lake Michigan) and I periodically have to dig out/brush off sand after a trip to the beach. Just taking care of it.
The grip is a tight sponge rubber material, which I think will last the life of the product. Certainly my husband's has lasted - no crumbling as is common with aging sponge rubber.Read more ›
I would suggest adding a head to this monopod. A good head would aid in panning and making fine adjustments. Without it, you need to tilt the entire monopod forward or back to shoot anything other than a horizontal shot. Of course, that means that the photographer has so support a portion of the weight of the camera and lens, which negates the major benefits to using a support.
