    Durable selfie stick but over priced

    I use my monopod for heavy snowboarding activities so it has taken a few falls and tumbles. It seems to be very durable, locks in better than other monopods, and comfortable to hang on to. My only complaint about it is that it was over priced by about 20 bucks, only reason I went with the one was becuase I had a gift card to use up. Otherwise I would have found a cheaper one online. Now that I have it im super happy with it and it will last me a very long time. I just wouldn't pay the full price for it. There's nothing that makes it stand out to why it's so expensive other then you are paying for the Sony name

    I was trying to have one that I can press the button and take pictures in my camera. Also the woman who works their told that it's the same one you can do it. I took without looking in it because I was in hurry going to the airport going to FL and When I arrieved their I swear I ddidnt use it at all because it's hard for me to get the good faces into the camera. Anyways I returned to MI And it's still with me but I will never use. I decided to come and try to return it but I said you guys would not accept me after almost a month. Thank you ..!

    Complicated and Bad product from Sony

    Cost much more than the quality, that it has. To extend the "telescopic" three additional pieces, is very complicated, and, because of it, you unscrew the camera while you are trying to put the stick in the larger/shorter length. Also the quality of the sticky foam at the end of the stick, is very poor: already damage! Want to return it ASAP!

    From the get-go this wasn't my favorite purchase but didn't want to spend too much on my first "monopod" I bought it for my Sony action cam but soon as I started to use it there was a piece that kept coming lose and just doesn't feel like a $40 piece of equipment...maybe a $15. Will replace soon as it gets on my nerves.

    Purchased this to use with my GoPro Hero 5, got it for a great price, the quality of this is awesome, very sturdy and well made. I use it for snowboarding, getting banged around and thrown through the snow with out any issues at all. Highly Recommended

    SUPER STURDY MONOPOD

    This item is super sturdy and is built to last and withstand aggressive use. I mounted a separate adapter and now use it officially as a selfie stick. Telescopic poles extend out and lock into place depending on the length you desire. Great item... Would highly recommend this item to anyone with a camera or smart phone when taking photos or videos.

    I bought this video cam selfie stick for our cruise and unfortunately lost it out of my backpack either on the airplane or at our hotel on the way there. I did get the chance to try it out making some test videos and stock footage before I left and I loved it. Very sad about losing it, but would definitely recommend it.

    I bought this to use with my SONY Music Video Recorder Camera but realized it can also be used with my GoPro HERO 4 Camera and I also can use it as a heavy duty selfie stick. Well made product, solid sturdy design and it's also made to be waterproof and weatherproof. Great quality design SONY!

    I didn't buy this monopod for the Sony Cam it was designed for, but I was able to use it with another smaller, different brand camera. It worked perfectly fine, but I do wish it came with a case of some sorts. For the price, I would have expected it to come with a cheap case, but it didn't.

    I returned this monopod and bought a different one that was more appropriate for my use. I suppose the Sony monopod is acceptable as an "action" model but I needed something more substantial

    I admit buying this item on a whim because I needed it for my vacation the next day. I was not satisfied with it at all. I was expecting a lot more because it was so expensive but nothing special about it. The grip felt comfortable but that was about it.

    I was hesitant to purchase this monopod as it is about $50. However after purchasing it and utilizing it on my snowboarding trip, I wouldn't have it any other way! It is great for capturing videos with a steady arm as well as those embarrassing selfies!

    The product works as described. I was happy with the purchase overall. There seems to be a hitch in how it extends. At times I have difficulty getting it to extend all the way. Other than that, no complaints. It is solid and mounts the camera well.

    This is great monopod for any smaller Sony camera; it’s great for simple handheld shooting and vlogs if you’re into that too

    This monopod opens pretty easily and locks well. A little cheap on the build-I would have paid more for a better built model.

    It works well for a basic camera, like Sony Action cam. I dislike extra foam padding wrapped around the bottom part, but other people may like it.

    This is an excellent item quality of it is really good. Works perfect for using all of my action cam video and still shot taking the only thing that would be better is if the price was lower.

    I bought this thinking I could get it to work with my GoPro, but it has a standard tripod mount and not a GoPro mount, so it wasn't the best for my purpose and I ended up returning it.

    This monopod makes it easier to film, when in a crowd! Just extend the handle and you won't have to worry about filming the back of someone's head. It's really easy to use!
