The Giottos MM9780 Monopod is a 5-leg section monopod that offers professional performance, features and looks. Made primarily from aluminum alloy, the all-metal construction of this monopod gives a feeling of solidity and confidence. Its surfaces are carefully polished twice, so its sections lock firmly and can be released quickly. Finally, the monopod is anodized to preserve the sheen of the original pure black finish.

Versatile Rubber Foot
The large rubber foot (with spike) featured in this series gives firm ground support and flexibility of up to 360° of tilt.
Security Design
Anti-twist screws prevent accidental loosening of heads, releases or cameras mounted on the monopod. A spring-loaded combination 1/4 and 3/8" camera thread assures easy handling under all conditions and the adjustable hand strap provides additional safety.
Security Strap
The security strap attached to the monopod protects the monopod from accidental falling.

    Great Monopod

    Pros: Does just what it is supposed to. Very sturdy even when fully extended. I can use this on a step lower than me without bending over, I'm 5'10".

    Cons: It is kinda heavy, but at this price it really is great.

    If you need something sturdy that will handle abuse, this is for you.

    I'd have rated this monopod 5 stars, but it is a full quarter pound heavier than the specs say. By actual weight, the bare monopod is 763 grams (1.68 pounds), without the case.

    It is very sturdy, good enough to be a hiking staff when the joint threads are tightened down. If yours wobbles, you just need to tighten things down a bit.

      Comments about Giottos MM 9780 5-Section Monopod:

      A little heavier than a composite monopod, I bought this for 2 things -

      1) I'm still paying off student loans, so I tried to get the best bang for my buck

      2) I'm 6'4 and wanted a monopod that wouldn't have me hunching over all day while shooting sports

      I couldn't be happier with this purchase. The monopod is very strong, when I get my telephoto loaded up, I never sense any drop in the sections.

          Seems very sturdy - maybe suitable for self-defense! Rather large shaft - maybe I missed that in the specs. Unfortunately, when I put my Benro DJ-80 head on it the case won't zip shut. So I can't recommend this monopod unless you are going to use a small head on it.

              I am really happy with the monopod. It's not as heavy as some people are saying and very handy. Of course you need to put a ball-head on it. They don't tell you in the paperwork but the 3/8" camera mount stud is spring loaded over the nice 1/4" stud. Very nice setup, just could have included it in the directions. I also use the monopod as a walking stick, its very pretty heavy duty.

                I purchased this monopod for use with a 170-500 mm Zoom Lens. It holds the camera/lens combo by the lens collar, providing solid support. The locking fittings are equally solid. Great product at a great price!

                            I use this little guy for wedding video. I threw my little NEX 5N on it and its beautifully balanced. I like how each connection twists to open and close, instead of a tab that flips up and down like on the Manfrotto monopods. This makes it extra quiet so I can sneak around and get great candid shots during a reception.

                                Anywhere where lighting and conditions would cause slow shutter speeds the monopod will help.

                                  I use my monopod all the time.
                                  Wildlife Bx Zoo, Portraits Sports events.
                                  I get steady shots. Much easier to carry.
                                  Great when a tripod can't be used ie

                                      Use it to stabilize long lenses when shooting sports. It is light enough to throw in my bag -- yet hefty enough to support a ton of weight. Easy to open with one hand.

                                        I put a Manfroto grip ball, a Nikon D700, a big telephoto lens on it and it is quite stable. It makes a descent walking stick as well. Tall enough to reach my eye level without having to stoop. If the friction on the sections was a bit tighter, it would make a good hiking staff.
