question

What is the footprint (inches) of the legs when extended? Trying to figure out how it compares to my Benro.
Asked by: Anonymous
Hello. The length of one foot measured from the middle of the table top tripod when extended is approximately 7 1/4 .

question

The middle section on mine I have to force open and the sides are getting all scratched. And now the bottom wont slide out at all. What can I do?
Asked by: Anonymous
I had the same problem when I over tighened the grip once.I discovered that the tube sections are keyed so they nest into each other (which prevents them from rotating separately).If the tubes and/or the rubber grips are twisted too hard, the tubes can rotate out of alignment from each other.To fix this, I loosened the grips all the way and twisted the tube sections until they were properly aligned again (and could freely slide in and out).I no longer tighen the grips as hard, and haven't has a problem since.

question

I have a Velbon 7000 tripod, which has the Velbon PH 368 fluid head. With that specific head from the Velbon 7000 tripod fit the Sirui?
Asked by: kevin s.
It should; your head has 1/4 screws and the monopod has a reversible mount as described below by Rodney. I was informed by B & H that that monopod would accept any brand head. I just recently purchased the monopod and it's very sturdy and I will be using it more than my tripod. Enjoy!

question

What's are the differences between this monopod and the EP-204S?
Asked by: Anonymous
I have the P-204S.The difference basically is the EP-204S is a little more money (not much)it collapses to 24 instead of the 27 for the P Model . The leg locks are flip locks instead of twist locks which may be a little more handy. Weight is about 1/2lb lighter also. Other than that it is about the same.

question

is this monopod capable of prime lenses like 600 mm along with camera bodies ..??
Asked by: Nilamkumar p.
Yes but with any monopod irrespective of lens or camera legs or no legs you do not let go. I put my Jobu Gimbal head on mine.

question

Is this a good monopod for VR shooting?
Asked by: Anonymous
We use it for VR and we believe it's fine. Probably best option right now for a regular gopro or generally lightweight VR rig. It doesn't work that great for steep mountain surfaces, we use a different one for that, a sturdy old manfrotto where you can dig legs into ground, but for location based stuff with predictable semi flat surfaces, it's great

question

Compared to a travel tripod (manfrotto befree or benro aero.... If this monopod is super stable and safe to leave your small mirrorless camera on top alone. Why have a tripod? When would you use the tripod over the monopod?
Asked by: Jacob P.
HelloI found this to be very stable.As you would expect no so much with a long lens.
