Manfrotto MMCOMPACTADV-BK Overview

The black Compact Aluminum Monopod Advanced from Manfrotto is a lightweight support for cameras weighing 8.8 lb or less. It extends from 16.3" to 61.3" and weighs just 12.3 oz. Flip locks secure its five leg sections in place, and a 1/4"-20 threaded screw on the mounting platform attaches to the tripod mount of most cameras.

To attach a camera to the monopod, there is a quick wheel that allows you to hold the camera with one hand, and turn the wheel with the other. An ergonomic soft grip and a wrist strap help ensure comfort and security while shooting, and a protective cap covers the 1/4"-20 screw when not in use.

Great product!

I got this monopod to take hiking. It's nice that it's only 1/3 the weight of a tripod and it's a great deal at only 1/3rd the price of a tripod! I wish it had two more legs though so I could stand it up and leave it unattended with my camera on top.

great for one handed people like me who had a stroke.

Works great for the price. I wish it had a head, or a bag, but again for this price that's more than enough

A Great Sidekick

I have a larger Manfrotto monopod which has served me well over time. This was purchased because it's lighter and I don't need to lug the big brother for my smaller cameras that I am using since retirement. Solid construction and great for toting on a bike with my camera bag.

I loved it until it broke.

I really enjoyed this monopod, until it broke with less than a year of use. The 1/4 20 thread on top came completely out, with my camera still attached!!!  Thank GOODNESS I still had a strap on the camera, or it would have smashed on the pavement.  I have tried to contact Manfrotto for a warranty exchange, but after two months, have yet to get to talk to a human being. Its like a black hole. I guess Im just out the money on this.  VERY disappointed in Manfrotto (Not B&H).

Same issue...screw popped out on second day of use.

Ugh, it's a great monopod other than the fact the screw and threading assembly truly fell apart while shooting a second event with it. Have no clue where the e-clip went or how it was stressed to pop off and now I either have to return it - I never have time to ship anything - or head to a hardware store to fix it myself. Either way, given the number of complaints about it and what appears to be a lack of testing from Manfrotto, I wish this product would simply be recalled or not sold at all.

Poorly designed thumb wheel / screw attachment

By Tim

Like mentioned in other reviews, the screw used to fasten a camera to the monopod easily separated from the thumb wheel when I attached my camera. This monopod will not securely hold a camera. It's a shame because the monopod is otherwise very well made with rugged construction and a very nice finish.

question

can you attach a tilt head to this monopod?
Asked by: Daniel S.
Yes, but it makes less easy to carry and not as good for a walking stick as the thread concealing cap is unusable.I do however use a Manfroto tilt head with quick release on mine much of the time.

question

Can this monopod be used as a walking staff? What is the weight restrictions for this use?
Asked by: Anonymous
I use a pair of hiking sticks when I hike in the mountains and this monopod is of lighter construction. Knowing how I use my hiking sticks, it never occurred to me that this monopod would be suitable to use in the same way.

question

Is compatible with the Canon 70D DSLR?
Asked by: Anonymous
it , and Manfrotto 23RC head, works well with my Pentax K5. I suggest that user reviews web sites (e.g. YouTube) to become familiar with how to properly use a monopod versus a tripod - it is, obviously, different.
