    Does this work with GoPro?
    A shopper on Nov 24, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It should work with the 1/4 inch screw. Note you get both 3/8 and 1/4 just reverse it to what you need.

    Great Value for a Portable & Lightweight Monopod
    No it's not like our heavier and sturdier or light weight and MUCH more expensive pro gear, but it more than suits our purpose. A quick and easy carry monopod.

    Something that should be added to the description. Not only does this come with a carry case, but it also included a belt holster pouch. For an inexpensive add-on for lighter weight cams you could pair this with the Monoprice 10268 Compact Camera Extender that has a 1/4" female threaded base and a 1/4" ball head. It makes a usable platform for a point & shoot with remote viewing / shooting app on a cell phone for high or awkward angle shots or videos. This extender will JUST fit in the top of the monopod's carry case to make it a very portable combo, and for under $30.

    PROS: Easy to carry and use and serves it's intended purpose well.

    CONS: None

    Interesting travel monopod
    I have several monopods I use them based on specific shot/assignment needs. This one fell into the lengthy travel abroad section. It's small is size under 16 inches light weight under a pound. Comes with a great carrier and a belt sling with a place to hold the monopod end while shooting.

    The head is a standard screw with no adjustments. Monoprice includes a screw adapter for the larger screw attachment needs. With this I was able to added a Manfrotto 234RC tilting head, to give this monopod flexibility. Now I can have full motion while setting up a shot.

    I would highly recommend this unit for the photographer who travels or needs a great light weight monopod. AND IT's PRICED RIGHT!!!

    PROS: Small size very portable for travel.
    Love the belt holster.
    Unit comes with a secondary screw expander... that can allow use of optional heads to be installed.
    Very secure locking between the telescoping sections.
    Construction looks professional and well made. not cheap looking,
    Price is excellent for this device.

    CONS: Light weight design, use with normal lenses.
    I gave it an 9 for the mounting head. it's ok it's a generic mount.

    Works for me
    These are initial impressions as I have not actually used it yet other than to set my camera on it and take a few pictures in the house. The height is perfect for me (I'm 71" tall) as it puts my Sony SLT-A65 at exactly eye height without any stooping required. It comes with a nylon zippered carry case that covers the whole monopod with a nylon carry strap and also a shorter nylon belt case/support that can attach to your belt or belt loop using the included aluminum D-ring. The nylon belt pouch/support is about as long as the foam part of the handle and the remaining part of the collapsed monopod feeds through a hole in the bottom of the case to dangle at your side. An additional closed bottom pocket on this belt pouch/support allows you to place the leg of the monopod in there to support it at waist level to give you some additional camera support vs. just hand holding. Nice bonus. Since this is my first monopod I don't know if that is something that comes standard with most of them or not. Since it is so light (10.9oz according to the instructions), you might not know it is there other than it banging into your leg as you walk around. There is also a metal thread adapter to adapt a 1/4" thread to 3/8" thread.

    It took several minutes to get the hang of how the legs twist to lock and unlock to extend in 5 sections. Seems like I have the hang of it now although it is sometimes a little more difficult to twist the skinniest bottom section because of its skinniness.

    The description about the rotating head is a little inaccurate. What rotates is the plastic ring the wrist strap is attached to. When the camera is mounted no part of the head that the camera mounts to, rotates. Unless you rotate the whole monopod. The specs in the instructions say the load capacity is 11 lbs. Can't test that claim since my camera and lens is nowhere near that. As long as everything is vertical should be supportive enough. The weakest point I see is the mechanism for tightening the sections in their extended positions. I could see extra weight (or even a normal camera weight) causing a poorly tightened section to cause it to collapse.

    Overall, well worth the 25 dollars (with overnight shipping and a 10% discount) for the few times I feel I might need a monopod for my not so frequent camera use.

    Would be nice if Monoprice offered a ball head to put on top of this.

    PROS: Great height for me.
    Very light.
    Rubber tip seems grippy yet durable and thick enough.
    Nice bonus (I didn't know it came with it) belt pouch/support and associated D-ring.
    Super fast overnight shipping. If there is no free shipping, then at least this overnight shipping is reasonably priced.

    CONS: Leg extension and locking takes a bit of getting used to.
    Very light also means the leg construction is very thin aluminum rolled into a tube shape. Definitely for light duty use. Seems frail enough that any rough use may end up bending a section, especially the thinnest bottom one.
    It is not carbon fiber.
    No free or cheaper shipping options.

    Very durable, comes with a handy case. Since the camera end is heavier than a holding end, this structure serves kind of as a stabilizer too

    63-inch Lightweight Aluminum Portable Monopod
    Works as designed. I have used it twice with no problems. Produces really good videos without the hand shake, but gives me the mobility to keep up with the game. I will continue to use it. At this price, how could you go wrong?

    PROS: Lightweight - easy to us - tall enough

    CONS: none really. might take a little getting used to expanding and collapsing, but not hard to do.

    Solidly built, height adjustment is easy
    This monopod sets up very nicely and feels very sturdy when I'm using it. I attached my Canon T4i to it, extended it fully, and held the other end while I moved it around (even horizontally) and it felt very sturdy. The individual sections are very easy to adjust, just twist left to unlock and adjust, twist right to lock it. The carrying case is also nice quality.

    It took me a few tries to figure out how to attach the camera, because there is a circular piece of plastic just below the post that spins freely, but I thought it tightened the threads. It turns out you turn the entire monopod for this. Now that know, its no problem. I'm not sure I'd use the belt holder, but it's a neat idea to just lodge the monopod in there rather than on the ground. That also took me a few tries because there are two spots the base of the monopod can fit, and one just goes straight through. Not sure my the second is there, but again, it's not a problem now that I know it.

    I'm happy I bought it.

    PROS: Feels very sturdy

    Easy to adjust the height quickly

    CONS: Small learning curve on attaching, and belt holder

    This may not be a super-robust and bomb-proof monopod, but it's damn good for the price. Build quality is good enough.

    PROS: Unbeatable for the price. Very clever rotate-and-click locking system for each section.

    These things are great
    I find this indispensable. Not only is it great for stabilizing when using a telephoto lens, it can also be good for shooting "above a crowd" using a timer or remote shutter release. Very well engineered being light, strong and compact.
