    Manfrotto MVM450A reviews

    MVM450A Aluminum Video Monopod and Fluid Head with Rapid Connect RC2 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from How did i live without this I use this monopod for filming documentaries and absolutely love it. It works perfect with my 70D and i was blown away by how well it balances and the stability the foot offers. Also great for adding needed stability to still shots and it is essential for shooting great interview scenarios. I recommend this to all my friends. The only drawback i have seen thus far are the weight which is probably due to the fact that it extends to over 6'. Still lighter and more ergonomic than my tripod but i'm not sure what i will ever use that height for.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect system for shots on the fly Extremely smooth & easy to use, my only con is the weight (won't be taking it backpacking with me). The pan is at the foot, but it only takes a few minutes of practice to get it down -- plus it & the motion of the fluid head together lead to some beautiful shots that are hard to recreate on other/cheaper support systems. It's able to hold up my DSLR w/ lens and a hot-shoe mount w/ an H4N, a lightweight light, & the receiver to a wireless lav on it with no issues. I also like that it can stand on its own on flat services with little help. Can only use this feature when I have the lightest of lenses on my camera & no accessories on top, but it makes it easy for some instances. Knocked off a star only due to weight, otherwise it's a great piece of equipment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good. A little heavy but you get what you pay for. Very well put together. Would probably work best with a long shoulder strap. You cannot under any circumstances let go of the monopod while your camera is mounted. As for the review above where the camera fell off and smashed - you have to make sure the quick release plate is oriented in the right direction - Lens points to lens - or yes - your camera will seem locked but will fall right off and hit the floor. Luckily mine was carpeted.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I needed a monopod for video and photo and I heard about these pods with feet. Basically it s a fluid head really smooth for panning up and down and a fluid part at the bottom of the pod for panning left to right . Plus a ball head at the very bottom that allows tilting. This thing balance and hold my gh4 with 100-300 and rode mic so I Make cool shots about waterfall and its perfext still ! This gear is the best I bought in long time. I now use it all the time. Was so useful on a birding trail in BELIZE . Love it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of its kind! I had shopped around for this type of monopod and this is the best one! The movement is very smooth, pan using the foot section, tiles using either the head or foot section, it take 1 minute for me to get use to it. The flip lock make the extent and retract very fast. I like this even more that the MVM500, the head I smaller and I can adjust the fluid to make the movement faster or slower. I just use this to shoot some 4k video and it is so stable and smooth. 10 stars....

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has improved my shooting. I really enjoy the flexibility and mobility this monopod gives me. The only issue I have is some grabbing when I pan. It is not very smooth when panning from the base. I am trying to find out what others have done to improve this issue. I imagine there is a way to adjust the base to change this. Other than this I really like this monopod. Also wish the head would pan but for the price you can't have everything!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beware, NOT a pan head Just a buyer-beware... although the head on this monopod is removable, it is NOT a pan-tilt head. Tilt only. Pan is controlled completely by the foot at the bottom. I just got it, but I'm unsure if I'll keep it since I was expecting a head that I could remove and use on a slider or tripod. Of course build quality appears nice as you'd expect from Manfrotto. Just disappointed in the lack of utility.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Monopod! I used this for a wedding shoot and it made a worlds difference in how I shot everything! All my shots were steady and smooth flowing. The pan feature at the bottom of the monopod wasn't that big of an issue for me seeing that I read up on this product before I bought it so I knew what I was getting myself into. But over all if your looking for a quick fix in steadying your shots and being able to be very flexible in how you shoot then this is the monopod for you!
