The black MMC3-01 Compact Monopod from Manfrotto is a lightweight monopod that enables you to steady your camera without needing to carry or set up a full tripod. Still photographers are able to shoot at lower shutter speeds with the camera supported and videographers can avoid eye-straining jitter, especially common during long zooming.

This monopod has five sections with easy-to-use flip levers which telescope to 57.2" and fold down to only 15.3". Made of aluminum alloy, it weighs only 0.64 lb and yet supports loads up to 3.3 lb. The MMC3-01 Compact Monopod comes with a wrist strap to safely secure your valuable equipment. A wide selection of optional ball or pan heads is available.

Maximum Height 57.2" (145.5 cm)

      I am using this monopod to photograph wild snakes-both poisonous and non-poisonous. I mounted a small ball head on the monopod and my Panasonic FZ-200 to the ball head. I use a slip on flash diffuser to get the best light. I prefer to place the camera at ground level in front of the snake (or other small thing on the ground.)I set the camera on wide angle and use a remote release to fire the camera. This makes for a dramatic photograph.I have heavier and sturdier monopods but this compact monopod works better for this project. It is light and easy to maneuver.I also could see using this monopod to lift a camera above a crowd or perhaps to photograph a bird nest.The only thing I might change is to have another 1/4" screw on the small end so I could hold the large end and have a better balance on the camera end.All in all perfect.The product is well made.

      I need a light weight monopod for use with a small Bogen ball head & a Lumix FZ1000 in low light conditions. My much older Manfrotto 3249 — used for years with film & digital SLRs — is now overkill.

      pluses...
      -compact length
      -light weight
      -extends/collapses operates reasonably smooth
      -clamps operate smoothly
      -for now, no creep when extended
      -inexpensive (a bargain for what it is)

      negatives...
      -flip out/in levers; not flip up/down. (up/down is better with ball head.)
      -no apparent method of adjusting clamping tension
      -bottom section is very small diameter, looks barely adequate. (upper sections ok)

          This thing is great for my Fuji X100s. It also makes a wonderful multipurpose stand for speedlites, and anything that can attach to a 1/4 20 thread. It also works very well taped to a duplicate of itself, creating a long extender pole.

                Can almost fit inside camera bag. Even though it was free with camera, the regular price is great at $. High quality monopod. I bought it for my wife as part of the camera package, and it works better than expected. Very compact and durable.

                  Bought this monopod after using a friends monopod. Had to have one, b/c I have a shaky hand. I love it, but it's a bit cumbersome if you're following a subject, as the rubber bottom can get hung up on the floor. Also, if you've got it extended, it's a bit of a stretch to bend down and lower each level. Honestly, a tripod is the best in any situation, but this did its job. Works GREAT for still pics too!!!

                      Really light and compact, so much so that it can even fit in one's pocket. I haven't used it very much yet, but I expect it to be useful in places where a tripod isn't a realistic option and low light shooting may be called for.

                        I bought this for my wife to use with her canon sl1 and a canon 70-300mm lens. We go to a professional tennis tournament every year and I shoot with a 7d and a 100-400mm lens and a full size monopod. Her scaled-down outfit will do her quite nicely and weighs a lot less. Now she can join in the fun.
