The Sirui P-306 6-Section Aluminum Monopod is a lightweight camera support that's ideal for extremely mobile operation with a DSLR, point & shoot camera, or a compact camcorder.

      I spent many hours researching the different monopods out there in the $100 or less category. My #1 priority was finding something that was light-weight and could easily be carried around in a backpack, since I always shoot solo. The project I needed this for was shooting short interviews at a convention with my Canon 60D, but I wanted the option to use with a long lens I (might) buy in the future. So I was also looking for something that wouldn't just support the minimum weight. This monopod is everything I had hoped it would be. It helped me stabilize my shots, relieved me from certain aches and pains of holding a camera up for an extended period of time. At 15" collapsed, it's a few inches more compact than the competition. I was between the carbon fiber Sirui and this one but ultimately I couldn't justify the extra $40 to shave off a few ounces and went with the aluminum. After I added a ball head (I went with a Joby Ballhead X), I don't think the comparative weights of the monopods I would have made much difference. Very happy with this purchase.

      After reading all the positive reviews for this product, I was convinced that this was what I was looking for: a monopod capable of holding a 400/2.8L while staying portable and light.

      Now, I have not mounted a 400 on it yet, but I can already tell that it may not be up to the task. The monopod wobbles when extended, even if I tighten down the twist locks as tight as I can get them.

      Perhaps it's a lemon, or perhaps it's the 6 section design, but I'm certain that this isn't what would work for me. Too bad, I'm very disappointed, because I really like the design. It's very compact, like everyone says, and the machining is top notch.

      I'm sending it back for a 4-section version. I've always had good luck with Sirui products, so I'm optimistic. Perhaps this is why I was so disappointed in this particular product.

      Monopod

      By Sommer

      from Stillwater, MN

      Comments about Sirui P-306 6-Section Aluminum Monopod:

      First experience using a monopod! I used it yesterday for a wedding with my d7000 & 70-200 lens. LOVED it. I'm not the greateest with keeping my self sturdy so this was the perfect piece of equipment to give me that extra stability I need! Easy to move to and from places; much easier the using a tripod. Loved the results.

        Comments about Sirui P-306 6-Section Aluminum Monopod:

        Great travel accessory and fits in my carry on - The shortest one I could find (15 in) AND with the Sirui K-10x Ball head, will more than support the weight of my Nikon D610 with a tele/zoom. Using it to obtain unique angles/perspectives. Also use it for shooting sports action - I feel more ready to capture the shot (camera is already up) and appreciate it carrying the weight for the duration of a game. The combination is a little heavier than I wanted to travel with, but I'd rather the extra weight and have the extra confidence the rig will support my gear.

        Solid Stick with a Great Feel!

        By Da Vinci Photos

        from Seoul, Korea

        Comments about Sirui P-306 6-Section Aluminum Monopod:

        I wanted to wait until I had this monopod for a while before I reviewed it. I have had several chinzy tripod's and I was worried about getting that same feel in a monopod. This piece of equipment is great! It folds up small enough to clip to my camera bag, and stands almost as tall as me when fully extended. I use it as a walking stick and it helps balance out my load. I've also noticed that people are less likely to bump me on the subways in Seoul when I am carrying it. I have used it to hang my camera over the side of a building to get unique rooftop angles. I have no fears about the security of my gear. The sections slide out positively and lock into place with no slippage. There is a six year warranty on this monopod, but I am sure I will be using it much longer than that.

              It is compact(a priority for me) and is fairly light. The carbon fiber version costs a more, but to save a few ounces it is not worth it to me.It has no problem holding up my Nikon D5200 and 17-200mm lense, 2.45lbs/1105gDepending on your purpose, you may need a ball head.

                  I'm very pleased with the Sirui monopod. To enable use in portrait mode
                  without an L-bracket I added a Joby ballhead. What it does is provide a
                  stable platform that one is willing to carry; see attached picture.

                      This is about as small as I could find. The weight is a great selling point. It can easily be used for travel and is extremely sturdy. Velbon makes one similar and slightly lighter, but I believe the Sirui might stand up better to travel.

                                Short to tall and everything in between. Nice sturdy feel. A little heavier than I expected, but that shouldn't be a bother. Takes up so much LESS room than a tripod. :o)

                                  This is a good quality monopod - way better than most I've seen or used. I like the mechanism for extending the sections, and the fact that the foot has both a hefty metal spike and a wide rubber base.

                                  The hand strap is nice, but I just cannot figure out why they put a compass on it. Do the designers expect I'm going to go backcountry hiking without a GPS or real compass, but with my monopod? My guess is the factory made a million too many tiny worthless compasses, and some executive insisted they get rid of some of them, so they attached some to these monopods. I'll let you know in a few years if I feel otherwise, but at the moment, the compass seems like a total waste.

                                    I use this to carry with me in my motorcycle saddle bag. It fits extremely well due to its low packing size and very light weight. It appears to be very strong, and I've gotten many compliments on its size, weight, and stability. I only hope that the leg clamps perform as good as the rest of the unit, only time will tell.

                                      After much research I settled on this momopod becuase of how small it can get. When I recieved it I new instantly that is was a quality piece of gear. The weight of it feels perfect in my hands. It deploys quickly and most importantly it can get really small. A+
