As with the one reviewed by someone else, the compass did not work on my pole either, hence 4 rather than 5 stars.

Even so, the pole is very good value for money. It is an effective walking pole, being light, having good suspension - which can be turned off - and seemingly well made.

It is not a bad monopod either. Used this way,I suspect it would work very well with one of the new 'travelzoom' compacts and would, therefore, be very useful to someone wanting to record a distant view from the peak just conquered with a the long end of the zoom. I gave it a much tougher test because I used it with my Panasonic L10 SLR body (fairly compact and lightweight as digital SLRs go), its very solid Leica 14-55 mm image stabilised standard zoom and appreciably lighter Sigma 55-200mm non-image stabilised telephoto zoom. It says quite a lot for the Cammlink that I got some sharp pictures using the long end of the telephoto zoom at 250th of a second i.e. about a stop advantage over what I would be confident hand holding it at. (Due to the smaller than average 4/3 system sensor fitted to the Panasonic, the range of this lens is 110-400mm in 35mm speak.) With the standard zoom, the gain is much the same, not greater perhaps because the centre of gravity of the camera/lens combination is further forward.

Putting this in context then, the Cammlink can be guaranteed to give one an extra stop advantage over hand-holding. My much heavier and four times as expensive Manfrotto monopod will give me an extra 2-3 stops and take heavier camera/lens commbinations, but its a pretty lousy walking pole.

So, I am 5'8" tall and 16 stone, I have arthritus, a dodgy left leg and a good dash of MS thrown in, I should use my wheelchair or mobility scooter more than I do, but it's too much hassle so I try to avoid using them as much as I can. The hospital give me crutches but I prefer a walking stick even though they are obviously not as safe. So bearing all this in mind it is fair to say I abuse walking sticks and use them pretty much to destruction. I like the built in spring which models such as this have as it does help soften the constant jarring to my shoulder. The continually adjustable height makes it easy to get the height perfect for my size.
I usually pay twice as much as this one cost, and have to replace them every six months or so when the spring rattles, the tip is worn out and basically they have had enough! So I have experienced enough walking sticks to feel qualified to make an informed product reveiw. This stick is as good and sturdy as any other, the locking mechanism on my unit works perfectly requiring little effort to lock it securely enough to take my weight. The spring action is also good and requires a good twist to enable/disable the action. As for the camera mount, it is adequate for a DSLR, and lets face it, anyone seriously into photography would be more inclined to buy a proper monopod rather than a walking stick. Similarly, the compass really is only there to protect the camera threads, and surely no-one would set out on a hike relying solely on this little compass for their navigation, they would have a proper compass or at least a Sat nav.
So, all in all, I have to say this is a well made product. I like it and more so since it is so cheap, so I would advise anyone thinking about buying one to go for this model. The delivery was next day in my case so even the seller gets my full marks.

I've used this on 2 hill walks so far and am very happy with it.
This is a hillwalking stick first, Monopod second. As a hillwalking stick, it is sturdy enough. It was well able to take all my 13 stone weight when i leaned on it coming down off a hill. The T-shaped handle is VERY comfortable. I agree with others that the compass is useless and doesn't work. Use a real compass for your bearings. But I think it's purpose here is to protect the screw for the camera. If you drop the stick on some rocks you could damage the screw threads.
I haven't used the stick to hold my camera yet, but i have used it to to hold my 21 zoom monocular. The monocular is very hard to hold steady. When i use it on the stick it's rock steady. VERY HAPPY about this. I can't extend the stick up to my eye level (I'm 6' 4" anyway!!!) but, god knows, when you are out for a hill walk there are plenty of rocks or lumps of bog to prop the stick up on. I have added a small rubber washer to the screw. Without it i cannot twist the lens to focus the monocular. It also allows me to twist the monocular around to a more comfortable position. I imagine it would help with camera position too.
RE- can't tighten pole problem. I've come across this before. It happens when you are trying to adjust the height of the stick. You loosen the mechanism too much and it won't tighten again. If you remove a section of the pole you will find a small nut on top of it, on other models it's a screw. If you tighten this a little bit (maybe half a turn) and re-insert it, it should tighten up now. Play around with it to get it right.
Over all I'm very happy with it. It was delivered promptly at a good price. Top marks from me.

Verified Purchase
Been trying this out this week and it's a good compromise from the bulkier
tripods. Feels very solid for walking out and handy for my camera and
camcorder. Although the little card attached to the stick states '120cms', there are measurement markers on it up to 135cms but it will stretch to 140cms up to middle of `Stop' marks. With camera on top it is a bit higher. Maybe `M. Yates' didn't open bottom section. My compass works okay but it is of no importance to me. A notch on top lets you drop camera 90deg from horizontal to vertical view.
I swithered over this and am very glad I bought it.
Highly recommended.
I was still using this up until Feb 2013. Coming back from holiday it was inside my soft luggage and it was banged about and broke at the handle. The bit that the camera/camcorder screws into got broken. So protect it in your suitcase with something solid.
Definitely buying another.
