      Comments about Giottos MM 9160 5-Section Monopod:

      This particular model was purchased for the flat foot. My concern was preventing damage to the artifical turf or synthetic track at High School sporting events. For this application it is excellent. It is also a great monopod for indoor use on a basketball court or the grandstands; no scratched floors or slipping on the aluminum surface. It provides rock solid stability at indoor awards ceremonies during low light where flash is out of range. The monopod rotates within the foot allowing panning to follow events on stage. This monopod is a substantial product which is somewhat larger in diameter than I expected. It is professional grade and would easily hold a large camera; it actually makes my camera look small. A plus side is the appearance of the piece. The black twist rings, which are self adjusting, are highlighted with silver and the piece simply looks great. I questioned the need for a monopod but now that I made the purchase I wonder how I lived without it. If you don't want the expense of a Carbon Fiber piece, this is a great purchase.

        Comments about Giottos MM 9160 5-Section Monopod:

        I have used the giottos monopod for several years. It is a great to have when using a long lens, especially in tight places. I took it to my granddaughters, dance recital. I was able to seat in my seat and take great pictures in low light. The height is great, I was also able to stand in the back and take pictures without worrying about people trapping over a leg.

          Comments about Giottos MM 9160 5-Section Monopod:

          I bought the Giottos monopod to replace a Slik monopod that gave to my daughter. Using a 500mm lens on the Slik just didn't quite stay as stable as I wanted. No sooner had I given her the monopod that I had occasion to need a monopod for a nature photography seminar. I quickly went to B&H to find a replacement.
          The Giottos monopod is a joy to use. It is much more stable than what I had previously used. The swivel foot is very steady in the field and the twist adjustment is every bit as fask as the clamp on my other pod. I also bought a Manfroto tilt head to go with it as the Giottos ball heads that I investigated were a bit pricier than I wanted at that moment.
          I have no reservations about recommending this monopod.

            First Time Purchase for this type equipment. Completed fair amount of product comparisons. Primary use is wild life and landscape photograph. First time use was at Daytona Speedway. Easily transported-compact & light. Great stability with my Canon 7D and 400MM. Single-twist section locks are best; No creep during use. Carbon fiber is stronger but under "average" use this unit is the best value. [...]Highly recommend.

              I'm a videographer currently working on a lot of quick and dirty hand-held video interviews. This monopod is brilliant. It packs down to carry-on luggage size, extends to eye level height (for someone 6'), and is lightweight for the sturdy build. Twisting releases are what you want and these are solid and easy to use. This monopod works brilliantly with the Manfroto swivel/tilt monopod tripod head. Great combination for quick release and lock down. I highly recommend it if you are on the move but also need a way to have some additional camera support for tilts and pans.

                Comments about Giottos MM 9160 5-Section Monopod:

                So far we have used the monopod at our grand daughters soccer games and the Christmas programs at our church. We have been very pleased. It really helps stabilize the camera while we're walking around. The only drawback is that the camera can't be tilted. But it isn't enough of a problem to stop using it. I will probably buy the attachment for easily attaching the camera.

                  Great for sports photography. Good height. Sturdy. Fanastic foot at the bottom that remains flat on the ground yet allows the monopod to "swivel" around while panning and tilting. Great product.

                      This pod is well-build, and well-designed. I use it in a wide range of situations with my 5Dmk2. I put a ballhead on it, and the bag that comes with it has room for both the pod and the ballhead. I carry it in the included bag strapped to the side of my Tenba Sling bag. It provides great stability, though of course not as much as a tripod.

                        Looks and feels like a quality unit. Has high load rating - yet quite light. Much better than a poorer quality carbon fibre monopod I have and little weight penalty for the increased quality and function of the leg section clamps.

                          Easy to use, strong, light weight and well constructed. If you are looking for a Pro-Monopod at a reasonable price this is the one. Actually, I'm not sure how I got by the past 20 years without a monopod. It really improves the quality of the fast action sports photography shots. A full tripod works slightly better but makes it harder to take those quick "in action" shots. My new rule ...if the 80-200 is mounted the so is the monopod. Therefore, I now carry it in my gear bag and use it for just about everything.

                          Comments about Giottos MM 9160 5-Section Monopod:

                          I use this primarily for shooting sporting events and also as a carry-along for hiking trips (just in case). The best feature is the twist-lock leg sections; unlike cheaper monopods, the legs themselves do not have to be held still while turning the lock because the legs sections sit in a groove that prevents them from moving. The insulated grip is also very nice for colder events.

                          My only concerns are with the bottom section. First, the bottom section seems particularly weak compared to the rest but that may be "as expected" for a 5 section monopod. Second, the footing on the bottom seems very weak; I don't expect it to last much longer before it falls off.

                          All in all, I would still recommend this to anyone looking at a monopod in this price range.

                            Well designed, sturdy, compact, correct price point.
                            "Twist release" adjusters are the only way to go.

                              Lightweight and compact. Still a fraction too long for the average backpack though.

                                  I use this new monopod for outdoor shots. I was getting a slight blurring from movement. This has helped tremndously. It is lightweight and comes with its own carry case.

                                    This mono is big, fat, very rugged, and high quality. It seems like you could use it for a house-jack in the basement when you're not out shooting. The feel of the twist-locks is super-smooth. Also, I like the rubber grip.
                                    I only wish that I could remove the hand-strap sometimes... it makes a slight noise when it moves, which in some circumstances could be an audio problem.
