    I was looking for an inexpensive monopod to take on a trip to Yellowstone. I wanted something light to pack on hikes and wasn't using a huge lens (Canon EF 70-300 USM) so my main focus was on a low cost. This monopod met that goal. But the ball head mechanism is sub-par. It rotates smoothly but really doesn't lock no matter how hard you tighten the friction knob. It took very little force to have my camera change position in the head from the weight of the lens pulling the camera down. It certainly helped to stabilize my view, and it was nice to rest the camera and track animals for a while, but don't expect anything perfect for such a low price. The leg extensions were a little tight, too, but the rubber grip and simple screw mount operated fine.

    Comments about Magnus DXM-500 4-Section Aluminum Monopod with Ball Head:

    It's not an expensive monopod, and it wasn't built like an expensive monopod. Functions acceptably for lightweight cameras. Don't try to use it with an SLR and a big telephoto lens.

      Comments about Magnus DXM-500 4-Section Aluminum Monopod with Ball Head:

      Remember 35mm cameras? - You looked thru a viewfinder and could kind of steady the camera using your skull. Not the case with many digital point and shoot's, and a monopod is quite useful, almost necessary with the cheaper cameras, to achieve good results. This one works very well, but I wish it was about 2" higher - somehow I thought it would be.

      By Flyboy

      Comments about Magnus DXM-500 4-Section Aluminum Monopod with Ball Head:

      The pod is quite stable but the ball mount does not hold my D5000 with the 18-250 lens steady. The head rotates but if you remove the head, the stationery mount works well.

        I bought this because it is light enough to take in your luggage for overseas trips. It is useful for daytime shots and can also be used as a hiking stick for mountain hikes.

          Quick and easy to use and very sturdy. It is still light enough to carry all day with heavy DSL cameras and lenses. The ball head can tip the cameral all the way sideways for portrait format, and then up aiming up at the tree canopy or stars.
