    Velbon ULTRASTICKSUPER8 reviews

    Ultra Stick Super 8 Monopod is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pocket sized stability A landscape shooter, I wanted a monopod for my Canon G-10 I could get in my pocket if possible. The Super 8 is nearly perfect. With the Velbon THD-23 Tilt Head attached, total length is just 12 inches with a total weight of 13.14 ounces. Granted, it might not work with heavier D-SLR equipment, but for the G-10 or smaller point and shoot cameras, it's nearly perfect. It has a rubber slightly pointed non removable foot which provides steady support on most surfaces in or outdoors. And ladies, if you're looking for something that'll fit in your purse, this might just be the ticket. I'd buy it again in a heart beat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost magic In the search for the perfect monopod, it became very clear that such an animal doesn't exist. But this Super 8 by Velbon is as close as I think I'll get. Great for hiking, it's very lightweight, very well engineered, and is my go-to for many occasions. Mostly mount a Sony HC-9 or Pentax K-r with modest tele lens, sometimes with a ball head, sometimes just threaded on the 1/4-20 screw. No objectionable wobble or shake even extended to its full length which is seldom necessary. The belt hook makes carrying the 8 painless, and extending and retracting the unit is quite simple and rapid. I would not recommend attaching heavyweight equipment, but for my uses this is just about perfect. Love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed My 600mm zoom lens is big, heavy and hard to handle. I searched in numerous locations for a monopod that would take the weight of my camera and lens and would also be short enough, in the collapsed position, ro serve as a second grip when the lens is on camera. The monopod worked out perfectly. When collapsed it is eleven inches long, a perfect handle, or short support for the camera. When extended it is almost five feet long; more than I would ever need. A perfect solution to my need. Thank you. Don Jefferson

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact, light weight, and easy to use IF you tighten it (I also bought a Manfrotto head to add to it, to allow me to flip a 35mm camera from horizontal to verticle easily.) I found the Velbon to be compact, light weight, and easy to use IF you tighten it properly when you extend the various lengths. I found it best to open all of them, and then tighten them from the top downward until I got the length / height I wanted. Then I tightened the rest of is using the foot knob. I also marked with a red crayon the length / height I used the most, in order to find it again easily. I do recommend this product. It is the photographer who must tighten it properly for it not to collapse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Firm Footing This is a great little--and light--device. I am a minimalist when it comes to schlepping, and it fits handily in a small camera bag with a couple of cameras and a few lenses, plus some other small necessities. It contributes very little weight. When fully extended to approx 60 inches it provides great stability for lo-light, high ISO shooting, without the additional weight and size of a tripod. Of course it is still a mono, so don't expect to be able to take long exposures. The Velbon turn and click extensions are a little bit annoying because they stick occasionally--but it's a small price to pay for the benefits this offers. I recommend using a small ball head--not a tilt head so it is quickly adjustable for vertical shooting. i got the tilt head first and discovered the problem so did a quick-and-easy exchange w/ B&H's exceptional customer service folks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Travel versatility This monopod comes in the smallest form factor I have ever come across. Great for travel or walking around. Easy to carry in its folded up state or extend it partially and use it as a walking stick. Very light so you can wrap the loop around you wrist and carry it that way. Of course there is a price to pay for its compact size. I might not use it for my D810 with a 70-200 2.8 lens but I do use it with my Sony RX 10 Mk III or my Fuji X-T1.
    Date published: 2016-06-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size and weight for my everyday kit I was looking for a monopod that was small and light to fit in my everyday kit. Under 11 colapsed, less than 13oz to carry but expands to just over 57 and supports over 6lbs this is perfect for my needs. It can easily support my D7200 with a 80-400mm lens. Extends and colapses very quickly. Small height adjustements are easily made with the top two sections.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is great ... simple, fast, sturdy and compact. Twist it one way it it telescopes out. Get it to whatever height you want and twist it the other way to lock it down. Perfect. It's super short when collapsed, which makes it good for a handle with DSLR film making. And it's plenty tall when extended. I'm 6'1 and it's plenty tall for me to shoot. I've not used any others, but I'm a big fan of this guy.
