      I use this to provide a stable platform for 14x zoom Point and shoot cameras while on my feet and able to move around a little at concerts. I wear a fanny pack in front and rest the foot of the monopod on it. I extend the monopod up to almost arms length to shoot over peoples heads. I got very stable shots/Video at full zoom in concert lighting.

      This monopod is quick and easy to extend full length by releasing the one flip lock and extending the sections fully then locking the fliplock when fully extended. It collapses just as fast and easily by reversing the process.

      For shorter lengths extend fully and lock then squeeze the buttons on individual sections to collapse just that section. The top section is fully adjustable for the length of the section using the flip lock while the other sections must be fully extended to lock.

      Collapsed it easily fit in my fanny pack along with the cameras and batteries. A longer collapsed length would not have been practical for me and I would have had to abandon the idea of using a monopod.

      The ball head worked well and locks in position solidly. Left slightly loose you can make minor adjustments while shooting though not through the full range of the ball. It's not sufficiently precision ground for that.

      The rubber foot seems permanently attached. When fully extended and locked don't lean on it too hard because the flip lock while holding very well for intended purpose will slip if you apply excessive weight on it.

      The more sections extended the more the shaft will flex if off axis force is applied. I didn't notice any flex with point and shoot cameras attached.

      Seems very well designed and built.

        Comments about Cullmann Monofix Monopod:

        This monopod is small enough to fit in my purse so I can carry it anywhere. It is lightweight so it isn't awkward to carry around but it is very sturdy. I can attach it to my camera and collapse it or expand it as needed quickly so I can stabilize my camera for a zoom shot or collapse it to move around. I highly recommend it.

          This is exactly what I was looking for. The construction is even better than I had imagined. This is perfect for the under 2lb camera. The compact size, and sure feel say that I will enjoy using this monopod.

            Comments about Cullmann Monofix Monopod:

            My husband and I are taking a cruise to celebrate our anniversary. Our son is a singer on the ship we will be on. I have a small camera that I will bring along and will take videos of all of our son's shows. Since I can't hold the camera still for 15 minutes straight while filming, I was looking for a small, lightweight monopod. I needed something that would fold up very small, yet be long enough when opened so that I could film easily while standing.

            This is perfect. If fits into the outside pocket of my purse, with the top sticking out. It is so unobtrusive, that I can carry it with me every evening in my purse, and take videos every evening.

                Comments about Cullmann Monofix Monopod:

                This cleverly well-designed, lightweight (about a foot long, 1 inch diameter) monopod fits in a small backpack and extends full length (55 inches)with one flip of a latch. It is sturdy enough to hold a point and shoot (I use a Canon G11). It is very quick to extend and to retract. I carry it in my backpack and pull it out when I need to use it at farmers' markets, walks, and travels. It is inconspicuous enough to not attract any attention. Comes handy with a hand strap and a ballhead. I have two other monopods that I paid more for, but for the its light weight and easy to use features, I like this one best!

                      The reason I bought this is I needed something to fit in my travel bag and it folds down to a mere 11.8 inches. It's sturdy, enough for an entry level dslr Canon T3i or even Nikon D90. It's well designed in Germany manufactured in Taiwan. The folding mechanism is definitely different. If you have the room, I would go with something else. The ball head cannot be replaced with a quick release. Quite a few drawbacks, but no complaints because I need the size.

                      Comments about Cullmann Monofix Monopod:

                      I got this because I wanted something very small and unobtrusive to use at school sporting events from the stands or sitting in an auditorium at a concert or show. It meets this requirement very well. I have used it in both situations and it worked very well, after I figured out that I really needed to tighten the ballhead. With my Canon XSi and 50-250 telephoto, the ballhead will slip if it's not really tight. Also, the telescoping segments take some getting used to. It doesn't work like most tripods or monopods that have clamps that will tighten any segment at any length. On this monopod, you must fully extend a segment to lock it, except for the top segment which has a clamp. You can set this monopod at any height once you figure out that only the top segment is adjustable. And closing down this monopod is nifty. Open the top clamp and all of the segments will collapse into the handle with a push. It's not as sturdy or as stable as larger monopods and I doubt that it will handle as much abuse. It's also not quite as tall when fully extended as "standard" monopods. But all I need is something to hold the camera still which it does very well. This monopod is small and short when collapsed. And it's completely unnoticeable slipped into the waist strap holder of my small camera bag.

                            Comments about Cullmann Monofix Monopod:

                            I use this to provide a stable platform for 14x zoom Point and shoot cameras while on my feet and able to move around a little at concerts. I wear a fanny pack in front and rest the foot of the monopod on it. I extend the monopod up to almost arms length to shoot over peoples heads. I got very stable shots/Video at full zoom in concert lighting.

                            This monopod is quick and easy to extend full length by releasing the one flip lock and extending the sections fully then locking the fliplock when fully extended. It collapses just as fast and easily by reversing the process.

                            For shorter lengths extend fully and lock then squeeze the buttons on individual sections to collapse just that section. The top section is fully adjustable for the length of the section using the flip lock while the other sections must be fully extended to lock.

                            Collapsed it easily fit in my fanny pack along with the cameras and batteries. A longer collapsed length would not have been practical for me and I would have had to abandon the idea of using a monopod.

                            The ball head worked well and locks in position solidly. Left slightly loose you can make minor adjustments while shooting though not through the full range of the ball. It's not sufficiently precision ground for that.

                            The rubber foot seems permanently attached. When fully extended and locked don't lean on it too hard because the flip lock while holding very well for intended purpose will slip if you apply excessive weight on it.

                            The more sections extended the more the shaft will flex if off axis force is applied. I didn't notice any flex with point and shoot cameras attached.

                            Seems very well designed and built.

                            very light
                            folds up small
                            pivoting head multiplies useage options
                            easy & quick to set up
                            excellent for touring with a lightweight camera
                            not stable enough for a camera with any weight to it

                              I using this on my new Sony HDR SR12.
                              It is great to keep the Cam steady.
                              I like the collapsed size of it (11 3/4" fit great in my Camera Bag).
                              It also didn't cost me an arm and a leg.
