          Comments about Manfrotto 679B Aluminum Monopod with 234RC Quick Release Head:

          Its gonna get the job done. Period.

          Nothing fancy about this monopod. Lever locks are great for quick opening. Quick release is extremely useful for getting camera on and off quickly, also helps to raise the camera an extra few centimetres.

          Suitable for tall people I'm 6'4" and can use this comfortably standing up. I feel that even people a couple of inches taller than me could use this comfortably as well.

          I found the adjustment knob for the head to not be in the best spot relative to the orientation of the quick release plate.

            Comments about Manfrotto 679B Aluminum Monopod with 234RC Quick Release Head:

            I am serious amature photographer, and this combo now goes with me to every event that I shoot.

            When the use of a tripod is out of the question, this is a very handy and lightweight cost effective soultion.

            The quick release head is great whenever you need to do some fast off hand shooting.

            For this low price it just can't be beat!

              Comments about Manfrotto 679B Aluminum Monopod with 234RC Quick Release Head:

              Needed a beefier monopod for my Olympus E500. This combination is tops for me. The quick release is a plus. The construction is solid, even at the clamps. Looking forward to using it at my grandson's little league games and other functions. I also purchased the B03157NR "no twist" mounting plate. Surprisngly, the quick release plates fit on my old Promaster tripod. [...]
