Manfrotto Element MII Reviews

Pretty good`

It works well, but it'd be nice if the wrist strap rotated more freely. Also there's a rough spot on top plate that I'll need to file down and paint.

Strong and makes a great cane

Purchased as a mono pod used it as a cane strong and never gave way. I'm sure it will be a great monopod but for my trip to Albuquerque it was a great cane for after hip surgery

The Manfrotto Element Monopod is easy to use with extension twisting rings. It is light weight but sturdy enough to use was walking stick. It allows you to fix simple attachment for the camera. I use it on bright sunny day when I don't want to carry the heavier tripod with Gimbal head.

This monopod packs very small, but extends enough I an use it standing, but I usually use it with a portable tool. Also use a gimble head to make it easy to pan and tilt.

It works for me.

This monopod works for me in doing on the move nature photography. It holds my camera steady for making video recordings and photographing in places I can't take a heavy tripod. I did buy a titling rotating Manfrotto head that attaches to the top of the monopod. It helps with angled up or down photos.

Can a non-Manfrotto head be used with this monopod? Could a head with Arca-Swiss QR plates be used instead?
Asked by: Erik
Yes, the Manfrotto Element MII Video Monopod can work with most heads. The top is a 3/8 inch male thread which is standard and reversible 1/4 inch thread. So most heads have that connection.

Aging long-tele bird photog here! I want to use this mostly as support to help get up/down from prone position. Could the wrist strap accept a big D-hook (carabiner clip) so I could hook the monopod to my belt?

The camera mounting screw is much larger than on my dslr. What adapter do I need?
Asked by: Martin
The mounting thread on this monopod has a smaller mounting thread inside the larger one. You just have to push down on the edge of the larger one to expose the smaller one on the inside.
