Hama Star 78 Mono
Advantages: A great value monopd that is ideal for on-the-go use.
Disadvantages: As always, there are better options if you pay a lot more.
I've been looking for a value monopod for a while now. I needed something that would steady my video camera but be smaller and more compact than a tripod.
This is just the ticket. It really is compact but extends to an impress 176cm in height if you need it to and folds down to just 61cm. It also has a handle a pan head for good movement, which many other monopod's I've seen do not have.
There's a rubber foot at the bottom that swivels which is great for when you still need movement but also want the shot to be remain steady. It also comes with a handy carry bag that zips up and has an over shoulder strap.
It's really light so you'd have no trouble travelling with this model.
Well built and cheap enough to be a welcome addition to any photographer or film maker. You can buy far more expensive models, but for me this is great for what I need it for which is steady shots on the move quickly.
Summary: Ideal choice for those on a budget and wan't something compact and light.
