Photography Review: Manfrotto-680B Monopod
The monopods are normally underestimated in their usefulness. Unlike tripods that require constant tightening and loosening, the cameras mounted on monopods are fluid in movement. The 4-section monopod from Manfrotto features a rubber grip, a strap for wrist carrying, a fast action lever leg locking system, a large 60 mm head/camera platform with its plastic cover and a dual 3/8″-1/4″ camera fixing screw similar to the 680 but it is black. The maximum weight of the monopod is 830 gm and it can support 10 kg of weight. The maximum height the tripod can operate at is 154 cm.
MONOPOD USER EXPERIENCE
I did a lot of research online before deciding to upgrade to the Manfrotto-680B. The monopod is exactly what I was looking for. It can comfortably hold 300 F2.8 AI and D700 manual focus lens. The weight and handling of the monopod didn’t cause many problems either. The monopod also allows easier manual focusing. The 1.54 m height it can attain makes it simple for taking photos while standing. Amazingly the product is pretty sturdy without being bulky and provides all necessary support. The pricing is excellent and I found that the monopod did make a difference while taking pictures. The solid build quality and stability is absolutely perfect for wildlife and sports shooting.
