    I love Slik products. I have the Slik tripod which I use all the time. But having the Slik pod is great addition to my camera equipment. It is easy to use, it's light weight and it's just what I need when I want to run around trying to capture birds so I don't always have drag my tripod around with me.. It makes shooting bird pictures very easy because I can stabilize my Canon. The best part of this Pod by Slik is it has so many different positions that I find useful depending on what or where the bird is I am trying to capture.

    I used this for about a year with my Sony camcorder, which weighs around 6 pounds fully accessorized. The monopod itself was sturdy and I had no problems with it. But the tilt mechanism on the head never locked tight enough. When I would hold the monopod at an angle to shoot down onto something, the head would slip. So I would tighten it down even more. One day, I tightened it down so much that I broke the tilt lock mechanism using just my hand strength. Later, when I tried to fix it, it was clear why - the parts that screw together to create the friction to hold the head in place are a junction of metal and plastic. So the plastic gives and breaks when you tighten it too much. Now I need a new monopod with a head that doesn't sag. Any suggestions?

      Comments about Slik E-Z Pod Jr:

      I use this monopod mostly for night shots in the street, and rarely indoors. Its lightweight, and seems to be strong and well built.
      The quick fit is not as good as I expected, but it´s works...
      a negative point is that not bring a Cover or case fabric to transport.

                  I purchased the Slik monopod to use on stops during motorcycle trips for both my Nikon D40 and my GoPro 2. It collapses down small enough to fit into my touring hard saddlebags. Solidly built, it has performed as anticipated. Good unit for the price, no negatives thus far.

                  I got this for my 7D with 70-200mm 2.8 IS II. It holds up fairly well, but I wouldn't want to go any heavier. A little bit of wobble, largely due to the last leg being a bi narrow. Fully extended adds to this, but at 5'10 I have no trouble viewing eye level with half of smallest leg section retracted. The clasp on the quick release head has a little give, but it is not enough to make me feel unsecure with my lens' safety. I also keep a black rapid sling attached to the 7d (monopod mounted to lens ring), for added peace of mind.

                    This product is pretty much everything I had hoped for. It is sturdy and even the bottom extensions are not that skinny. So far, I have used this for shooting a football game and taking video. It's a good value for the money, I think.

                      Haven't had a chance to go into the field with the E-Z Pod Jr yet but have used it for nature shots in local conservation areas. Much better than hand held with my D90 and 18-200 without the bulk of my tripods. Also faster to set up since you're adjusting only one leg for height. Fully extended it's a little wobbly on the thinnest leg with a total of about 3.3 lbs load, but still so much better than handheld. By shortening the bottom leg to get the right height it stffens up pretty well (using it at 59 inches extension. The clamps are solid. The QR appears to be solid and while a ballhead would have been nice for vertical shots, I learned a long time go to try to avoid vertcal perspectives if possible. All in all a good compromise at a good price.

                        Comments about Slik E-Z Pod Jr:

                        I got the E-Z Pod Jr to use with a Canon 40D plus 70-200 f/4 telephoto with 1.4x extender. I mount this using a Canon telephoto lens "collar" that has a tripod screw hole in the bottom. All things considered, it works well. The legs are easy to extend/retract and keep their settings solidly. It's easy to adjust the top segment in or out a little to do fine height adjustment. It's very handy having a tilt adjustment on the head, so I can easily aim up or down without having to lean with the whole monopod. The tightener knob feels a little mushy and flimsy, and it's hard to tell when the knob is tight enough to keep the lens from drooping. It's also very nice having a quick-release plate, because I can quickly remove the camera when the monopod would be an impediment for a shot. The quick-release plate attaches solidly to the camera but the quick-release mechanism itself is not rock solid. It can wiggle a little bit but not enough to cause any problem during normal use. A lot of basic monopods don't have a tilt adjustment or quick release head, so these are big plusses. The overall monopod is also quite light and easy to carry, compared to my regular Slik tripod, so the monopod will see more use than the tripod. When I carry my Slik tripod + camera, I like to carry it on my shoulder like a rifle, and all the adjustments stay rock solid. When I carry the monopod + camera this way, the tilt setting winds up drooping. The specs say that it's rated for 8.5 lbs, but this sounds like a lot for the head and for the bottom segment, which is thin. It can easily handle a DSLR + telephoto, though. The monopod does not come with a carrying case. Overall, I would recommend this monopod.

                            I use it at sporting events. It is heavy duty compared to my old monopod and supports my Cannon SLR with a heavy 200MM zoom lens easily. It did not come with a case, however, carrying it is not a problem.

                              I use it with small video cams to either stabilize or raise above head level. The quick release plate is what sold it and it works very well. Will buy several and switch cameras quickly. Very reasonable price for a solid product.

                                I use it for as a cheap stabilizer for my video camera. I prop the end in my pocket/against my leg and shift the weight off my arms/wrists holding the camera. I like that it had a strap so it was easily swung over my shoulder when not needed.

                                  I use this monopod with a small video camera as well as a digital SLR. It meets all of my needs and is the smallest monopod (when closed) that I could find.

                                    Bought this for sports & nature photography. It's light, portable, and has a quick release mount which is exactly what I needed. You can do no better for the price.

                                      I love using this monopod. It is sturdy and the clips make changing the height a breeze. I worried that it might not be strong enough to hold my camera and large lens but it works very well.
