      I'm an amateur living in Montana between Glacier National park and Yellowstone. I bought this because I wanted a travel monopod that could also fit into the case of my Induro Grand Turismo Carbon 8X tripod that I bought a few weeks ago and, by the way, based solely upon reviews from this web site. Never saw an Induro product before and took a chance. Love them both. A true value. I've had Manfrottos, Gitzos and plenty of cheap tripods/monopods over a lifetime of shooting. The Induro duo is my first carbon fiber and now my favorites. Over 50 years ago at the age of 10, I was developing color 35mm film and printing color enlargements on an old Bessemer in my homemade darkroom in the basement. So I'm not new to photography.

      Thanks again to all you that take the time to review equipment and thank you B&H for your great web site and expertise. Your youtube video channel is really helpful for someone like me living in a small town in Montana. Since I self taught myself developing and printing from library books as a kid, I can really appreciate how much better it would have been to view a video as well.

      Check out the photo that I took about 10 minutes after the UPS truck drove away. I was out in my back yard and thought I'd try my new monopod with a Nikon 18-300mm 3.5-5.6 mounted on a D7100. I heard this plane and took this photo. Here are the details: 300mm (DX format). AF-A. VR on. Aperture f/5.6. 1/1250 shutter speed. ISO 250. Image quality is Lossless Compressed Raw (14 bit). Converted to jpeg in photoshop. Original image size is 6000x 4000 DX, 26 MB. jpeg uploaded is 2MB. Cropped about 100%. When I saw it flying overhead, it was far enough away that I couldn't ready Navy on the wing and was surprised that it was a prop plane after I reviewed the image. Don't know the distance, but the airport it flew out of is about 10 miles away. I was really leaning back when I released the shutter.

      I bought the monopod thinking that height wouldn't be a problem, nor would the load capacity given the 20+ rating induro gives the monopod. The biggest issue i have with the cm25 though, is that the locks simply need to be tightened consistently, or otherwise the entire thing is prone to slide down if you press down on the your attached camera. No real stability issues with a pro body and 70-200 2.8, but if you're squeamish with flex, do not buy this monopod. On the upside, the CM25 is very portable and light. I can't suggest the monopod for anyone above 5'7 though, as I'm exactly 5'7 and keep the CM25 fully extended all the time, though i might not necessarily have to after i add a QR clamp and plate tomorrow.

        Feels well made and nicely designed.
        The belt strap is handy.
        Can also be used a walking stick.
        Would be useful if it were another 2" longer.

          Was steered towards the Induro by the salesperson and glad he did.
          Very compact when closed, light weight which is nice since I like to keep all of my support equipment in one bag.
          Also very smooth extending and closing the monopod, noticed some of the others would stick and wouldn't slide in an out as easy on the display models.

            Fits well in my smallest carry on or back pack. Super light. Looks good with R40 ball head. Could use with out ball head.
            Be a very good travel monopod. Or hiking stick.

                Comments about Induro CM25 Carbon 8X CM-Series 5-Section Monopod:

                After allot of research, I bought the Induro CT 114 carbon fiber tripod and was so impressed with its quality that my choice for what monopod to buy came down to which model Induro to select. I chose the 5 section CM 25 because it is the shortest when collapsed. The fully extended height is not a problem for me with a ballhead fitted, but if you're especially tall, you might want one of the other Induro models. The platform diameter is 42 mm, which is a perfect match for the Oben BB-0T ballhead; I use the Oben BB-0 which flares at the base to 47 mm.

                    I purchased this for a trip to Alaska. It was exactly what the doctor ordered. Light and sturdy. Made for great support while shooting bears and whales. A bit short for me (6'2") but I knew that when I bought it. Extensions lock firmly without slipping when pressure is applied. be careful not to lock them too tightly though. You may have to fight to release the lock collar.

                        I use this primarily for wedding photography and specifically to hold a portable softbox. I use this to hold an Einstein + Mini Vagabond Lithium + 3ft Alien bees softbox. I can assemble this entire lighting setup in less than 3 minutes and hand it off to an assistant to position. With that and a cybercommander, I have a completely wireless setup that I can change as lighting needs change.

                        It's extremely lightweight and compact and at this point, I have no cons but rather more of a warning - watch your fingers when you're collapsing the setup :)

                          table high quality mono that folds up to easily carry. I have had a lot mono's before this is my favorite ever. You sacrifice small amount of height for the compact close up feature. I did a lot of research and this is the most stable compact mono money can buy. If you need any thing more stable I suggest a tripod.

                            I bought this to be able to walk around all day with a Canon 7D and a Sigma 50-500 lens. I've not a long trip yet, but I've used the monopod with this and other configurations and I'm very happy. The sections are easy to deploy, and easy to lock down. The weight of the camera/lens combo doesn't concern me. I'm 200lb and I can lean on this thing without the legs so much as budging. The monopod is very stout.

                            The leg sections are easily removed for service (if necessary).

                            The monopod is very light and is barely noticeable on the back of my bag.

                              Comments about Induro CM25 Carbon 8X CM-Series 5-Section Monopod:

                              I've been using this monopod with my Canon EOS T1i, battery grip, and 17-40mm lens. I needed a monopod for some extra stability under lower light outdoors because the 17-40mm has no image stabilization. With the monopod adjusted to my desired height I was surprised to find that it was able to support all of my cameras weight and some extra weight from me pushing down on it. It's definitely a sturdy monopod. The only time I've had the monopod collapse with the legs extended and locked was when I really forced it down with my weight.

                              I've had no problem carrying it around all day in the freezing cold because of the padding around the top of the main section. It also collapses down to a very compact length to drop in my backpack when I won't be needing it, and it's light enough for me to forget I have it with me when walking around for a few hours.

                              The monopod sets up very quickly too.

                              This is definitely a fantastic monopod.

                              I'm a short, female. My cameras and lenses weigh enough; it's nice that at least one accessory doesn't! And, most importantly, this mono fits easily into my carry-on bag.

                                I'm 5'10" tall and this compact monopod extends to the perfect height. I've used it with a 500 f4 Canon lens and it was strong enough to hold it stable. I wanted a monopod that can fit in my computer backpack (which fits a 17" macbook pro) and this fits the bill. I didn't try the aluminum version which is slightly lighter and half the price, but in my work, every ounce you carry counts.

                                I bought the monopod thinking that height wouldn't be a problem, nor would the load capacity given the 20+ rating induro gives the monopod. The biggest issue i have with the cm25 though, is that the locks simply need to be tightened consistently, or otherwise the entire thing is prone to slide down if you press down on the your attached camera. No real stability issues with a pro body and 70-200 2.8, but if you're squeamish with flex, do not buy this monopod. On the upside, the CM25 is very portable and light. I can't suggest the monopod for anyone above 5'7 though, as I'm exactly 5'7 and keep the CM25 fully extended all the time, though i might not necessarily have to after i add a QR clamp and plate tomorrow.
