    Comments about Sachtler Monopod Carbon Fiber with Betacam Quick Release:

    I shoot reality television on shows where a typical day may require 10 hours of handheld work with a half-hour break for lunch. With digital microwave, 2 Lectro receivers, Hytron 140 and a LitePanel, the camera typically tips the scale at 35lbs.

    Every day was a grueling endeavor until I bought this monopod.

    For a the price of my day rate I can now deliver painless shots that give a 'handheld look.'

    The monopod has also improved my attention in-scene and made my coverage better because I am able to focus my concentration on listening to story instead of on the burning sensation on my back.

    The forward-facing bracket leaves the camera's shoulder pad free for making smooth repos without detaching the monopod. If it comes time to run after action, the monopod releases quickly with one-hand, leaving the other free to stabilize the camera.

    This thing is a major back saver at a price point that beats alternative solutions by thousands of dollars. Ideal for dinner scenes; meeting scenes; instructional scenes; on-the-fly, in-the-moment and man-on-street interviews; and any other scene where people are talking to each other and you have to hold that shot 'til your shoulder falls off!

    Thank you, Sachtler for extending my career another few years!
