Not for the small potatoes

This thing is ingenious! However, I bought this because it was in the deal zone and cheaper than the air 15. So I knew that the number referred to it's maximum payload. What I didn't realize is that there is a minimum payload! My equipment isn't heavy enough to compress the air powered shaft. I have to muscle it down to lower the height. This should probably be stated somewhere. I even watched a demo video covering all the features and they didn't say anything about it. So it's difficult to use with the Sony A7 iv. But it's not quite as bad with my DJI Ronin 4d which is around 12 lbs. But I imagine it would work like a dream with anything over 15 lbs. I might get an AIR 15 just to see the difference.

Like many photographers, I have a love hate relationship with monopods and tripods. I needed something to help me stabilize my Phaseone system when walking and searching for views to capture. Holding heavy medium format gear steady enough is difficult. I came across the steadycam monopod on B&H's deal of the day. The hydraulic height adjustment makes a huge difference and works perfectly and save me time saving hundreds of dollars was greatly appreciated. So far so good!

Excellent

Well made

Works great for filming with the Canon C70

This works extremely well for running and gunning with my Canon C70. I mount my C70 onto my DJI Ronin RS2 and then put it on this guy when I'm doing more stable pans and more accurate shots. If I need to go handheld, I just unscrew this and put on the DJI mini tripod legs. Super compact solution and very versatile. The hydraulics could be a bit smoother but once you get the hang of it you know what to expect.

Nice idea - falls short.

And promotional videos you see people leisurely pushing their foot on the pedal and the tripod majestically and smoothly rising up. But in reality you push the pedal and there’s a slow stuttering as it lives up to its maximum size and good luck trying to get this thing back to its original position unless you have a 25 pound camera on top to help you.

Heavy lifting

Heavy describes all of the monopod's attributes. It's heavy and large(but so is a Rolls-Royce) because it's made for heavy gear. I got this Air 25 one when B&H had it on sale for 199, less than its little brother. It does exactly what they show in the promo videos. My only difficulty is that after raising it with the hydraulic pedal, it takes a LOT of effort to push it down again. The conventional top section with the usual lock on the leg allows for perfect height adjustment. I'd have preferred the bottom module with little stabilizing legs, which is a 45 dollar accessory.

Solid, Will hold a heavy load, BUT...

A rugged piece of kit, but not lightweight at all. Being an older Gent I found it quite difficult to recompress the shaft even with about a 4Kg payload, i had to stand and lean down on it. Definitely has it's uses, but not for me. The physical difficulty for me (at 77yrs of Age) caused me to return it. A Younger mans piece of gear.

I have used this monopod with my Sonys and Nikons. It can handle the weight I see the price for this item has gone down, worth buying now I paid over $400 when it first was released
