    This monopod is lightweight and portable. It is easy to attach to the camera and extends instantly holding the height at which it is set. It is ideal for sports photography. It helps to steady the camera and my 200mm lens when I take action shots at 1/1000 exposure. Moving from one location to another is so much easier than using a tripod. You can also use the monopod to ocassionally "rest" the camera between shoots, which can make a big difference after an 8 hour event. The quality is solid and the design is sleek.

    I took this monopod on a trip, and it did the job as expected. I took pictures of wildlife using a Canon pocket camera, and it was steady enough to snap a clear picture even with zoom. The quick release locks on the pole worked very well. I was hoping to use this as a walking stick as well, but I didn't get the opportunity. One thing I will say is that I should have bought a swivel cap for the top, so that I could easily adjust the camera angle as opposed to leaning the monopod. It would also be nice if this monopod had a cap for the top, but it wasn't a big issue for me.

    I bought this just to see if a monopod would really be practical at all, and I really must say, they are great. The price of this one made me assume it would be of poor quality, but it is a rather sturdy little piece. It can hold the weight of my D5300 and any of my lenses without slipping or shaking at all. It also serves well as a hiking stick. I did eventually bend it when I stumbled over a rock while it was wedged between other rocks, but it still functions well. I would recommend buying a quick disconnect mount for the top as well, they're cheap and it greatly increases your options for carrying it. Overall, it's a great product.

    I wanted a monopod that was light yet would hold up to moderately heavy use and would accommodate my Nikon D7100. I had looked at a Manfrotto but when I spotted the Sunpak Platinum 6700M monopod I knew I had found the right monopod. Even better, it was on sale! The 6700M extends to 67" which is perfect for me as I am 6' 1" so I have "extra" room" if needed for BIF shots. Fully extended it does not flex and when I lean on it the locked legs do not slip. When the non-slip rubber foot is screwed into the lower leg there is a metal spike to help anchor the monopod, if needed. Sunpak has been in this game for many years and they make a fine product for retired professionals, like myself, or any level of amateur to advanced for a reasonable price.

    Great for shooting videos with small camera

    I purchased this monopod as a last minute decision as I was on my way to watch my son's school performance. The last video I had recorded using my point and shoot camera was so shaky that it was pretty much a lost cause. Using the Monopod helped tremendously and it also kept my arms from getting tired from holding the camera up. For the price of this monopod, you can't really complain about it. It gets the job done, it comes with a carrying case (I don't use it) and the weight is not an issue. At first opening and use, the foam handle has the typical stinky smell, but that goes away after letting it air out for about a week.

    Affordable - Great for a beginner

    This is a great monopod for the price (mind you, I got an open box deal, but it's still good full price). It's not going to hold up to lots of abuse, and it isn't made to have a head attached. You could always get an converter, but the screw is 3/8" - meaning it fits a standard camera (tripod heads are 1/4"). So, it's definitely not for pros, or even experienced hobbyists, but it would be great for someone starting out, before deciding to go with something from a pricier manufacturer like Manfrotto or Oben.

    Solid construction, with light weight design

    I purchased this so that I could mount an Action Cam or Digital Camera and use it while standing in a crowd, or seated. This works extremely well in both circumstances. The monopod comes with both a soft foot, as well as a retractable spike that provides a sure grip on soft ground or soil. A nice feature to have when out in nature. It is well made, and nicely engineered. It looks hardy in construction and like it would probably last me many years of regular use.

    Decent build overall, needs panhead

    Solid monopod for the price. Easy to use, nice that it came with a carry bag. One thing to note is that I recommend getting a panhead adapter for this monopod because after mounting my polycarbonate Canon Rebel body onto it for the first time, there were scratches left from plastic head. Overall, this is a good budget monopod. There are comparable monopods out there for a lower price (i.e., Dolica WT-1003 for $15 @ Newegg & Amazon) but I've seen worse models than this Sunpak.
