    Excellent Monopod at a Great Price

    This is really a nice monopod that is well made and should last for many years. The best features are the soft foam hand grip and it comes with it's own travel case. The fact that it extends to 67" is a real plus for taller folks. It also has a retractable spike in the rubber tip which is useful for extra traction in the grass, dirt or snow. For the quality and features I think that the price is a real bargain.

    I received a hybrid DSLR for Christmas. Great for nature shots but not steady in my hands at the max 42X zoom. This little mono-pod steadied the camera right up. Easy to open and close the extender latches. The 67" extended length puts the mounted camera a full 4" above my eyes. The only fault with this mono-pod (and any other mono-pod) is the inability to use the camera in the vertical plane instead of always horizontal. The retractable leg spike was good this winter on icy surfaces.

    I had decided to go to the trouble of bringing my 600mm lens to Colorado only to forget my top line monopod at home. Fortunately a friend was coming up from Denver and so I bought online this much less expensive monopod to take its place. When hiking my monopod is also a hiking pole. I was concerned that this lighter version would not hold up in that way let alone my heavy lens. I needn't be concerned. I had no problem at all. Lighter and smaller I plan to make it my suitcase monopod.

    I purchased this to assist in photographing our daughters soccer games when my Canon T5 was zoomed in. I was tired of having to scrap most of her shots due to it being blurry even with IS on. I didn't want anything too heavy or cumbersome to carry daily, but wasn't prepared to pony up $150+ for a nice tripod. This monopod has worked perfectly. It's especially nice to have the option of rubber pad for hard surfaces or spike for the grassy fields. Would buy again if I needed.

    It is not the best product, but it gets the job done for the price. the clasps are plastic but seem to be working as intended. It comes with a nice nylon carrying bag. 21 inches closed and 67 inches extended. Aluminum construction feels sturdy. you could definitely upgrade to better quality monopod for more money.

    I needed a simple monopod to support my dSLR camera for those instances where I may be using a heavy camera lens and could use the extra support. This Sunpak 6700M monopod meets all of my basic needs at a very reasonable price: simple, relatively lightweight, easy to set up and get going. Would gladly recommend to anyone looking for good value in a monopod.

    I film lots of run and gun shoots like marching bands and weddings where I constantly am moving about, and this monopod is light and steady! The construction on the monopod is aluminium, and is good quality for the money. I have used lightweight mirrorless cameras all the way up to broadcast camcorders on this monopod and for the money it is a very great buy! Bang for your buck! Best wishes, and God Bless, Bubba

    I do the school photography for my son's high school athletic teams, and have been doing this for five years now. This mono pad is just outstanding and inexpensive! The fasteners hold great. Previous stands I have used begin slipping almost immediately. I am shocked the product is so inexpensive for the quality you get. Responsive, sturdy, yet light! Definitely can recommend this product!

    I never thought I would use a monopod but I love this one!! I am 5' 7" and my husband is 6' 1" and we can adjust it nicely to both our heights. Just to see how well it adjusts, my sister who is 5' 2" was able to adjust the monopod so that the camera was perfect for her use. I really enjoy how light and easier it is to carry around then a tripod. Obviously you cant stand it up alone like a tripod, but I use it a lot more then I do with my tripod.

    I was pleased with how easy it was to attach camcorder, and video while on the monopod. Seemed to video with better clarity versus holding the camcorder and the movement that occurs, which was an added bonus, even if I was not going to be moving around. So happy I made the purchase, it is a great tool to allow for less movement while recording. The monopod takes up very little space and has a nice case with a carrying bag.

    This is your basic monopod, the grip is actually comfortable and the releases latches are stiff enough for the security of your camera. It doesn't have a movable latch for angles but it does the job for a leveled shot. The latch is awkward, there is no detachment for a tripod so if you're wanting easy access between your neck-strap to a quick pod adjustment, thats a "no-go." other than that, price is pretty well for this item.

    I replaced an older model monopod that broke due to poor construction. This one seems to be holding up ok. Clips make for quick and easy adjustments. I am using a 70-200mm Canon 2.8F lens (fairly heavy) and it holds it fine. I am not certain as to how the longevity will be as I have had it a few weeks. I am hoping for the best. i have a tripod by Sunpak as well that is two years old. I would buy it again, but hope I don't have too!

    I picked this monopod up quickly as a last minute accessory for my Sony a6500. I must say I was truly impressed with the quality and build of this monopod for the price. For sure there are other more expensive monopods online but to be honest this one did it's job and it's still going strong after several months. Once again you can't beat it for the quality and price. Highly recommended!

    I bought this monopod with my GoPro because the sales guy said it was a cheaper alternative to the GoPro version. However the camera attaches to the end with the grip on it and NOT to the other side at all. So if you are buying this to be a cheaper GoPro stick, I would not recomend it. But if you know you want the handle next to the camera, this is a very sturdy and well built monopod for that use.

    It's really just a simple monopod so theres not much to say here. The price is good so i guess thats a plus, but besides that it's what you expect from a monopod. If you do a lot of video work while standing, but don't have the room for a tripod, this works perfectly. I'm a wedding videographer so i am constantly moving during the ceremony. this makes it easy for me to move around without getting in the way.

    This monopod is excellent for many uses. I've been using it with a 500mm telescopic lens. Camera and lens is about 7 pounds and this monopod handles it fine. The bottom can be turned to be either a rubber stand or a metal spike. The grip is comfortable, and best of all, it is lightweight and collapses for an easy carry, especially using the wrist strap. Very happy with this purchase!

    I was looking for a basic monopod for quick stabilization during shoots. This little guy did not disappoint. Definitely a basic solution though. The extension locks sometimes get stuck but nothing a little WD can’t fix. Included carrying bag with strap is a nice bonus!

    I bought this monopod before a trip to Alaska. We were going to hike in bear country, and I thought it would help me both walk, as a stick, and support the weight of my camera when taking photos of bears. It worked spectacularly! One of the guys along for the hike even said, "shoot, I have a monopod at home I could've brought along!" It worked great, I'd highly recommend it.

    I purchased this monopod to help support a very heavy 600 mm camera lens. I used it several times during a recent vacation. It did help offset the weight of the lens, but it wasn't particularly helpful in holding the camera steady when I was taking pictures at full zoom. For this application a tripod is indispensable. This monopod is not intended to make a tripod unnecessary.

    I returned a cheaply made monopod that I purchased while traveling for a sporting event. On sale, It cost twice as much as this one. The previous one broke the first time I used it. I returned it to a different Best Buy who had this one in stock. It is much better made (aluminum shaft) and cost half as much regular price. I've used it numerous times since purchase and it works great!
