why are the specs for the aluminum and carbon manfrotto 290 exactly the same?
Asked by: Jay
I guess that the specs are the same, or close. I have CF tripods but I needed a monopod and this was on sale. It's very light and portable and does the job. I don't think it will make any difference whether aluminium or CF on a monopod, at least in my case.

question

Accepts Manfrotto498RC2?Wonders if this question has already been answered,,,,sorry if I missed.
Asked by: John
yes, i have the 498rc2 head and it fits perfectly. i used this setup on a recent trip to South Africa and it was the best investment i made. if you have the money go for the carbon fiber version, but i felt the aluminium to be equally good, if you are not going to be using a very heavy lense

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi, John! Why spend the extra money on a carbon fiber monopod when the aluminum one gets the job done.

question

Will it work with sony a6300
Asked by: Anonymous
I expect it will if you are shooting still photos in daylight conditions with a fast shutter speed. But I wouldn't recommend using any monopod to shoot video. With a monopod it's difficult to maintain a steady camera for more than a moment or two. And this camera apparently does not have image stabilization to compensate for camera shake or movement.
