    MeFOTO A35W reviews

    WalkAbout Aluminum Monopod (Purple) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice monopod for the money I am very happy with this monopod and with the customer service of the company. I was attracted to this item because it doubles as a walking stick. It's not light as a result, but that's ok with me. An important advantage is that it supports 30 odd pounds of weight. It works very smoothly and looks great. Like the experience of another reviewer, I found that the compass in the knob had a large air bubble that made the compass useless. I notified the company when I registered the product, and the company sent me a replacement knob in about a week. So far, I am very happy with the product. Given my experience with the company, I have no doubt that I will receive excellent support should I need it in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great monopod for the $$ I purchased this monopod used but it was like new so I believe that I canver write a valid review. I have found it to be very stable, easy to use in the field and a very well made product, especially when you can get it for $29 at BH Photo. But, the compass is really just a little eye candy and I wouldn't depend on it. I use a Manfrotto monopod head with it which does add some weight but keeps the adjustment to the vertical plane which I find much better than using a ball head. And, the monopod does make a fairly good all around walking stick.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, light and a great bargain. I bought the MeFoto WalkAbout Monopod in yellow and love it. I have been using 2 Manfrottos which were getting old and losing some of the holding power and would slip when I was shooting football with 300mm 2.8 lens. I have used it twice and wife has claimed it for herself so I adjusted the tension on the Manfrottos and we are both happy. Probably will buy another MeFoto though. Great bargain at the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dual purpose tool Great as a monopod and walking stick. Collapses to small length and feels very sturdy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice addition to my kit Really pleased with the Mefoto Walkabout monopod. I got the purple version because for some reason it had a better price, but the color is a nice touch and it's mostly black anyway. It has a nice satin finish to it and the feel of the leg locks is really good, with nice rubber grips. I saw reviews where people dissed the compass in the knob, but it actually works (though I probably would not rely on it in the wild). I'm planning a trip in the American west later this year and I expect as a walking stick it will come in handy when hiking. It appears strong enough to give some balance but would not put my full weight on it. As a camera monopod, I am using it with a Joby Ballhead-X that I purchased with a Gorillapod SLR some years ago. The ball head seems to be the ideal size to partner with the monopod. With my Nikon DX camera and 135mm non-VR lens, I can get a large number of steady shots down to 1/15 sec. Maybe not wall-size blow ups, but on my PC screen they are certainly sharp. I did have to experiment with my stance a bit. I'd recommend anyone new to monopods to check out some of the You Tube videos that are out there. I like the tripod stance that some have recommended, and you definitely need a ball head to use it this way. Height is ideal for me; I'm about 5ft 10in tall. Ordering on-line through B&H was easy and the delivery was right on time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and I would recommend it to others. I bought this product to use for sports photography. I generally use a maximum of 300mm 2.8 and was worried about the ability of the monopod to hold this load on my large Nikon DSLRs. No problem at all. Stable, lightweight and very easy to use. Excellent product. No negatives at all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I thought the color would be deeper I leave this one in the car now. You ever have those times when you're in a rush to get to the shot location or trip. Then you get there and that image of the monopod hang on the chair....30+ miles away.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made monopod / walking stick Haven't had a chance to use it in the field yet, but overall this monopod appears to be well made and solidly constructed. Certainly seems like it would work well as a walking stick. Only defect found so far was the little compass at the top wasn't glued in place. A little superglue resolved the situation nicely. Knocking off one star.
