      Comments about Giottos MML 3270B 4-Section Aluminum Monopod - Supports 33 lbs (15kg):

      I bought this monopod due to the excellent reviews and guess what, the previous reviews were true. I would add that it would be better to include the separate rubber foot with a metal spike (which I bought as well). This accessory screws tightly into the monopod tip (after its original rubber foot is pulled-off). I think it adds to some degree of sturdiness to the already sturdy monopod. The monopod is ideal for a tall person (I am 6'2"). It is light and solid. I use it with the Quick Release Kirk monopod head (MPA-2), which mounts nicely. I could even use one of the three monopod security screws (for anti-twist purpose), which fits into one of the slots at the base of the head. I currently am using this combo with my Nikon 200-400 plus F5. In all about 11 lbs., and despite so, the clamps held-up very well with no slippage. This set-up is rock solid!

            This Giottos aluminum monopod is a great value for the price. It is sturdy and well made, the clamps open and close very smoothly, and the maximum load of 33 lbs. is more than adequate for my Canon 5D Mark II and 70-200 f/2.8.Although I have not done so myself, the rubber tip at the bottom can be removed according to Giottos, for use with optional screw-on tips, spikes, and pads (purchased separately).I wish that it were slightly more compact when folded, but I have not been able to find any of the smaller Giottos monopods online, such as the MML 3250B, which has a folded height of 48 cm, in comparison with the 54 cm folded height of the 3270B.I use this monopod with the Giottos MH 1000-652 Ballhead, which I also recommend.

            Comments about Giottos MML 3270B 4-Section Aluminum Monopod - Supports 33 lbs (15kg):

            I bought this to shoot sporting events, fitness competitions, and anything else that I may need it for. I didn't want to carry a heavy tripod and set up in the pit with something that will take up the majority of the space, but I didn't want to shoot a 5DMKII, 70-200IS, and other lenses hand-held all night and day. So, enter the monopod.

            I have never owned one before and didn't really know what to expect. I was curious about the weight being aluminum and worried that it might weigh as much as my tripod. It didn't even come close to the weight of the sticks alone let alone with a heavy duty ball head on it! In fact, in comparison, it felt like a feather!

            When I received the unit I unpacked it and immediately began looking over the instructions for use (yeah, I know - lame) and figuring out what it could and couldn't do. Then I removed my Kirk Ball Head from my Manfrotto tripod and put it on the monopod. BAM! Match made in heaven! My next concern, height.

            I stand 6'2 and like my camera in be in front of my face. I'm not a fan of bending over to shoot action or even having to strain my quads by a semi-squat so I let it out to it's full length. It's almost as tall as I am fully extended with the ball head which is a little longer than the listed length. It brought the viewing eyepiece right up to my face. Perfect! :)

            Next text, strapping it to my lowepro backpack/camera bag. Compared to the tripod, it went on faster, it moved a little more even when secured (but this is nothing to write home about at all - I'm having to be really picky to find something wrong with it), but it felt like it wasn't even there when I wore the pack! Just another testament to the difference in 3 aluminum legs and one. :)

            Shooting with it was a charm. When moving around the pit it didn't get in the way and most importantly, I didn't feel like I was toting around 50lbs by the end of the competition. All shots were keepers!

            Sometimes, with show lighting being so dim (and I'm talking DIM), you lose some shots due to hand movement and such, the monopod helped me shoot at 1000ISO and drop Tv speeds to between 50 and 125 or so. PERFECT!

            Clamps are well make and lock down tight. Materials are great and the warranty is awesome. :) I'm not a fan that the screw has to be REMOVED and I'm not a fan of them showing you the case and then not including it. But oh well...that's not a biggie at all. Nothing huge. :)

            All in all, I'd recommend this monopod if you're shooting stuff like me.

              Very sturdy monopod. Use with my 80-200mm Nikkor lens and my D300. Clip releases per segment easy to operate making set up and adjustments quick. Has a reversable attachment screw head. A little on the heavy side.

                Couldnt ask for more. Easy to set up, fairly compact, not too heavy, super stable. Right now the biggest lens it is used with is a sigma 70-300 but im hoping to get to get the sigma 150-500 soon and a 70-200 2.8 and im sure this monopod will be more than enough to secure them. Great price to compared to other monopods with this sort of quality

                  I am using this monopod as a base for when I use my Canon 7D as a video camera. So far it is perfect. The locks are easy to use and it is nice and light. I am tall so the extended height works great! I did not get a ball head yet but i would definitely get one.
