Benro MSD46C Reviews

Easy to use

By Bruce
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-24

I found the Upper section clamp to be exceptionally helpful. Very often when using it with my 150-600 mm and Wimberley MH-100 gimbal head I had to increase or decrease the height of the extended monopod. The clamp release made this very easy, much easier than having to screw/unscrew the other locking rings. My only problem is that when carrying the monopod with the lens/camera attached, my shoulder was hurt. I had to wrap some foam around the upper section to make the monopod comfortable. It should come with foam or the option to purchase some.

Perfect for bird photography

I waited until I had used this monopod for a month before submitting my review. I used the MSD46C for 5 or 6 hours per day for the first three weeks in May as this is prime migration time here in SW Ontario. The flip lock adjuster on the upper section is ideal to allow fine tuning the height when faced with birds that are lower or higher. I did not experience any slippage of this lock while the rig supported a D850 with grip and a battery and a 600mm f/4 prime lens. Pairing the monopod with a gimbal provides an ability to relocate quickly that is superior to a tripod, and essential for shooting warblers. I carried the rig for several kilometres each day over my shoulder and it was surprisingly comfortable, but I did add some padding on the upper section to make it more so. Highly recommended.

Excellent for tall people, collapsible and transportable, light-weight and yet strong.

I'm 5'10 and I do not even need the bottom section. Light and very strong. The upper flipper section is very handy for quick adjustments!

Solid mid-priced monopod

My older aluminum pod was getting beat up bad. I have a D5 and 400mm sitting on it most of the time. I don't often extend it very high, but there are times, so I wanted a taller and stronger one. Overall, it is stable with the heavy load. No flex problems. The leg sections seem like they are high quality, but they aren't the smoothest sliding. The twist locks work well, but the rubber on them slips a bit. My main complaint is that it has a flip lock, why? I specifically wanted twist locks since they work and work well one handed for me. Now, I have on flip lock that likes to slip and I need to adjust it all the time. I wish I could just avoid it, but you can't tighten down the twist lock below when the twist lock loosens up. So, you need to extend it a little and use two hands. There is a nylock nut that should prevent it, but it is a what it is. I do like the foot on the bottom. It has seen dirt and all the little turf grit from sports fields. Working ok. It hasn't seen the sand for a surfing competition yet, but that is coming soon. This is a nice monopod. It isn't as nice as the $350+ options, but it is also a lot cheaper.

The best Monopod!

I Love this monopod! I especially love that it can extend to 72". It is well built, light weight but sturdy as can be. I use it with a Canon 5D Mark 4 with a heavy canon 28 to 300 lenses, and a variety of others. It is solid, easy to move around and easily adjustable. Get this piece of quality equipment.

Excellent

Extends to up to 6 feet, adjusts quickly, removable foot (rubber swivel and spike included). Pairs perfectly with Wimberley MH-100 monopod gimbal head!

Very well made and sturdy. Love the weight of carbon fiber. Only thing I would like is a foam grip for added comfort when walking.

I am planning on using a GT2 Tomahawk Gimbel with this Monopod. Which panning plate would work well with both of these? I do no want to get a separate ball head for the mono.
Asked by: Bruce
You do not need a panning plate to use the ProMediaGear GT2 Tomahawk Gimbal Attachment for Ball Heads on the Benro MSD46C SupaDupa Carbon Fiber Monopod (72"). One can simply spin the monopod to pan the camera.

Asked by: Kathy
When the legs of the monopod are locked, they are not designed to rotate. If you need to rotate your camera, you would rotate/pivot the monopod in your hand or rotate your body.
