    MM 8650 Carbon Fiber Monopod is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Giotto 8650 Monopod I just purchased this monopod to take with me on a wildlife photo workshop in Montana. I knew that we would need to be mobile, there was moderate snow cover, and that I would be using long lenses, longest being a 100-400mm zoom with 1.4 extender. So this was perfect solution. The foot anchored well into the snow without slipping, and using the Manfrotto monopod head I was able to quickly tilt the camera and lens. Images were sharp and showed little camera shake. I would recommend this highly when mobility, stability, and portability are required for a camera/lens support.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock Solid Very solid feel, folds small for easy transport. Will hold a very large lense. The foot works great on any surface especially in an indoor facility to get multiple angles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Guranteed support in compact design Previously I owned the aluminium version one and unfortunately, it was stolen and then I decided to go for the carbon fiber version. Fantastic product; Solid design; compact; Lightweigt; I love the twist lock design; Unique large rubberised feet.... perfect seat; perfect for my height. Sure to have this product if you want to use large lense with support.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from light and good I don't use a monopod too often therefore I decide to buy an aluminun one. However when I was checking the models available at BH store I found this carbon fiber Giotto. Due to the lightweight and good overall quality I changed my mind and bought it.
