      A great product that still looks good after years of use

      I never really thought about having one of these before, and then I saw someone using one on holiday with their SLR camera and thought that looks good. In the past when I've wanted to do some 'serious' outdoor photography, I've always taken a tripod, which was cumbersome to set up if you wanted to take a fairly quick shot. So I bought this monopod from Amazon for about £34 and so far have been using it for about 4 years.

      With this monopod, the first noticeable thing is that if feels well built. It's got a secure wide rubber grip at the top and also a handy wrist strap. It also has 2 quick lock lever actions so that you can quickly release the legs and open the 3 sections into position, locking them at any height from the closed position of 24 inches through to the fully open length of 61.5 inches. The locks are also strong enough to enable this monopod to be additionally used as a walking stick, which I have frequently done during my travels, a versatile use equally assisted by the rubber grip and wrist strap at the top.

      The top section for mounting the camera has also been very well designed. Initially it has quite a wide plate and the centre has a dual ¼ inch and 3/8 inch screw (which interlock on each other to look like one) which connects to your camera base.

      In use, this monopod is solid and steady and easily holds my Nikon D80 and 200 mm lens in position. And after 4 years of use being carried in rucksacks and walked across hillsides and fields, it still looks like new. I can't fault it and it is worth every penny.
