Does the job for point and shoot – Stainless Steel Handheld Monopod for Digital Camera Reviews

posted by wormer on 06/12/2011 Certified Owner

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
Other:
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
