Zhiyun-Tech GMB-B96 overview

  • 1Description

The Telescopic Monopod from Zhiyun-Tech is a 2.4 lb support that positions its twist-locks towards the top of the pole instead of the bottom like most traditional monopods. Extending the 5-sections allows the monopod to have a maximum height of 50.5", while its closed length is 16.5", and its load capacity is 22 lb. The aluminum monopod's top plate has a reversible 1/4"-20 to 3/8"-16 camera mounting screw, and the non-slip rubber-tipped feet at the bottom of the pole prevent the monopod from sliding on smooth surfaces and provide stability on uneven terrain.

    Zhiyun-Tech GMB-B96 reviews

    Telescopic Monopod is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice addition It’s a nice addition to your camera gear especially if you’ve got Zhiyun Crane 2. I bought it because I wanted to mount my Zhiyun Crane 2 on it during a wedding ceremony so that I don’t have to hold it for the whole ceremony, but I end up mounting my iPhone while using the Crane 2 to move around and get shots from different angles :)). But yeah, like I said it’s a nice addition, though being new to this world of photography and cinematography, I can’t say it’s the best in class. The overall built quality feel good, so no complains on that area. It’s my first monopod and the reason I chose to buy it it’s because I have Zhiyun Crane 2.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Excellent! You can probably tell by the headline that I really like this thing, and it's light enough, yet still feels like a quality build. Now, I don't know what if feels like on a heavier gimbal with a heavier camera, but I bought this specifically to combine with my Panasonic Lumix G7 and Zhiyun-Tech Crane M gimbal, and it works just fine. It was such a great addition to my set up that I really don't regret buying it at all. I was a little skeptical of whether or not it would work right or if it would bend a lot and whatnot, but I feel confident using it. At least with my set up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for Crane 2 I just used this on my first shoot and it is amazing. If you have the Crane 2, you must get this. And at $99, it's a no-brainer. It makes the Crane 2 so much more versatile and easy to use. High angles are a cinch and very steady. Even low and regular angles are smoother and easier to handle. I had a photographer on the shoot with me. He does video also and has a Crane 2 and commented how he has to get this.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great addition to the crane gimbals. Overall, its a great tool to add to the chest - but wanted to share some of the pros and cons I'e experienced. Pros - designed with gimbal use in mind, so you can arrange the hand grip to be at the top like a monopod or bottom like a selfie stick. Adds some options for gimbals like smooth crane-like shots. If you use it with the included shoulder strap, it saves your arm strength during a long day. It collapses down very small so very easy to pack or strap to the side of a backpack. With the stabilizing feet it stands up on its own so you can take your hands off it to grab something out of your bag - wouldn't trust it enough to walk away from it though. Cons - if I mount a gimbal on the non-grip end, there's some bend in the pole when fully extended - makes me a little nervous dangling expensive equipment up in the air - which seems to defeat the benefit of having the grip on the bottom end. Maybe more of a personal preference, but would love if they made a version with latches instead of twist locks because they can be annoying when you are in a hurry. Last thing, the stabilizing feet that screw into the bottom have a twist-lock mechanism that twists the opposite way - when you tighten the mechanism it is easy to loosen the feet from the monopod and visa-versa.
