  • Does the job for point and shoot

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Good construction, folds up nice and compact and takes up very little room

    Has an additional screw hole at the bottom to attache a second monopod or to other tripod etc

    Construction quality is good

    Cons:

    Can't handle the weight of a DSLR when extended for portrait shots

    No rubber foot on the bottom

    Only suitable for lightweight cameras

    It is stainless steel, but I suspect the main rod will rust slightly if exposed to moisture - a bit of oil spray should stop this happening

    The carry handle is right at the bottom so will get dirty if used on the ground

    Bottomline:

    Does the job and works well for that bit of extra stability for upright photos. Just a shame there isn't a rubber foot for the bottom for grip and protection
