      Use this product with my NIKON COOLPIX L 810. Still finding out what works and what does not, but found this product helpful when still shots are planned or while using zoom at high magnitude. This product is noted as having quick release for the camera, THAT IS TRUE. Also my NIKON fits quickly and easily on the top of the monopod. No coins or screw driver needed to place it on the platform. When holding the monopod, without any other assistance, there still is some movement that you do not have with a tripod, but maybe with time that too will improve. For me so far this product works best when I rest the stand on a surface to give less movement. The option to quickly remove the camera from the product by unlatching the plate without total removal of the camera does help with more spontaneous shots. Releasing the clamps for length is difficult, so be patient.

      Nice Monopod

      It seems to be very sturdy and great for taking shots horizontally, wished it had the ability to rotate for vertical shots. It is a bit difficult to remove the connection for the camera...Read complete review

            I use this monpod for supporting my d7000 and a 300mm f4 lens. In my case (being disabled) I find the monopod easier to move than a tripod. I also use it as another cane. Comes in handy. In my case I cannot fault it,

                        This product is fantastic. I use it mainly for wedding videos, while filming at the reception. I don't have to worry about an obtrusive tripod to get a steady shot. Furthermore, with the quick release plate, I can detach from the monopod and go hand-held quickly. Its a very solid design and well built. No complaints!

                              For fast action when you want a steady hand this is the perfect companion. I just recently purchased this monopod for a wedding I was shooting for a friend. Being an outside reception it was very handy to have when taking pictures in the dark tent and later on when the sun went down. The quick release makes it very fast and versatile. Really happy overall.

                              I was documenting a summer group of students. Much of their trips were up trails in the hills. Fist day I lugged my tripod up and thought "there must be an easier way!". That night I logged on to B&H, seeking a mono pod of good quality that was at a price that would not dent my pockets. I found this one, and so far, I am very pleased. Sturdy. Nice foam hand grip, and the quick release plate was on point!

                                  It seems to be very sturdy and great for taking shots horizontally, wished it had the ability to rotate for vertical shots. It is a bit difficult to remove the connection for the camera from the monopod.

                                    We will be using to take to programs--the compact size and having it's own bag was very convenient.

                                      I use this product to stabilize my camera when shooting sporting events. It's lightweight, easily portable, and comfortable to hold. The only complaint I have about it is that it didn't come with simple instructions. For example, there is a red latch that is a locking feature but I don't know if it is locked or not and I don't know if I have my camera securely fastened on... It feels secure, but I may not have it on the correct way. Instructions or a pamphlet about the product would have been nice to have with it. Otherwise, it is a great product!

                                          Have alawys used tri-pods but this monopod gives me more flexability. It is light weight and easy to carry and store.
                                          I have yet to find anything that is not good about the product I bought. It is just what I was looking for.
