Manufacturer's Description

Manfrotto’s mission is to develop specific ranges of supports for the particular needs of all customers- taking into account different levels of skill and varied ambitions in photography. Every series has specific characteristics and intended applications, with products differing for every level of performance, features and complexity. However, all of the products share the Manfrotto attitude: to offer no more than the necessary features, as not to add unnecessary complexity and always providing the highest level of quality. This approach is very unique to Manfrotto, in a market that typically wants to offer everything to everyone at the lowest possible, good enough, quality. Manfrotto’s approach is clearly visible through its tech solutions and materials derived from the professional experience that translates into performance, effectiveness and durability. Manfrotto offers the most complete and wide range of products on the market, from the most technologically advanced and high performance solutions for advanced and pro users, to easy, compact and straight forward solutions for the most easy going and enjoyable shooting experience.

MONOPODS.

Besides the tripod, the monopod is the best way to hold a camera in situations where space is limited. The quantity and weight of the equipment carried on location needs to be kept to a minimum or where set up speed is essential. Correctly handled, the monopod supplies all the camera support you are likely to need, even for long lenses. Monopods are an important part of every photographer’s support equipment and the Manfrotto monopod range includes many different models, considering different materials (carbon fiber or aluminium), number of sections, payloads, locking technology, maximum height and compactness.

MM294A4, 294 Aluminum Monopod 4 Sections.

The MM294A4 is the 4 section monopod belonging to the 290 family. It is the best solution for compactness and light weight. The fortified alloy tube, constructed using the exclusive D-shape, ensures additional stability for a creative and enjoyable shooting experience. It has a solid aluminum upper disc with a versatile 1/4”-3/8” attachment for the camera and head. A comfortable and secure operation is also guaranteed thanks to the soft grip and angled wrist strap. Section diameters in mm are: 26, 22.5, 19, 15.5.

This monopod from Manfrotto isn't hugely expensive, but taking this out of the box for the first time you could be mistaken for thinking it's more costly than it is, very solid feeling in the hand. Slightly different design for this tubing is alloy with a D shape (flat side) this is evidently for improved durability/strength in the tubes. 4 sections in total with a min collapsed size of just under 49cm, fully extended it's about 151.5cm in length long enough for most users even taller ones.

Included is an adjuster for the leg locks this is clipped onto the tubes, simply open the locks out and you can tweak the tightness for each of the 3. Top platform is a larger strong plastic, a hand strap is just under (this can be rotated around) the foam grip is harder and resistant to damage but grippy enough to hold the monopod securely. One clever element is the build in 1/4 inch and 3/8 inch threads it takes both sizes with a spring loaded action.

Very happy with this for the price it's vastly better than you might expect (finishing is first class in every respect) it's capable of holding up to 5KG more than enough even for fairly weighty lenses. You don't get a head included or a case, but I wouldn't expect one for this price. Comes highly recommended it's light, extends a good height and is very well made indeed. Another winner from Manfrotto

Gives a very good support and is easy to adjust with the three finger operated locks. I am 5ft 9" and do not need the full extension to bring it up to my eye level. Without the camera it is an excellent hiking pole with a comfortable foam grip and a handy wrist strap

This is the first monopod I've bought as a professional videographer (now that cameras are so much smaller) and I'm impressed with it's sturdiness whilst being light and portable. With a decent head attached it is a very useful tool when filming without lugging around a bit tripod or trying to avoid over zealous security guards (you cameramen out there know what I mean). Great value for money for an excellent manfrotto monopod, but I don't know what else is available at the price so do look around, but if you are thinking of this one then rest assured it's quality....

I bought this for supporting my Nikon D700 in tight situations, such as evening parties where there is a lot of jostling and you need the extra help the keep the camera steady (and to take some of the weight of the camera and flash!) I also bought a quick release clip for this, which I highly recommend, as it's handly being able to ditch the monopod fast.

It's sturdy and good quality. I highly recommend it.

I bought this product because firstly the name secondly the price and thirdly the erected size, it is as always well made being a Manfrotto product, if I could make a slight criticism, I wish it closed up a bit smaller, but that is just nit picking

My children bought this monopod for their dad for Father's Day. I had been given one for my birthday and my husband was very impressed with it. It is light to carry and very easy to use and adapt.

This Manfrotto Monopod is great! So lightweight and great when on location but don't have the luxury of lots of space. This Monopod is great for getting stable shots on both photo and video. Great for weddings especially in the evenings when weaving through lots of people but wanting to get stable shots in low light.

Head - It doesn't come with any head so I would suggest getting the Manfrotto smooth ball head in order that you can smoothly move from shot to shot. Without this ball head I think it's rather restrictive.

Length / Height - The length that this Monopod goes to is impressive but it also retracts to a very portable compact size. This would be great for the travelling photographer who doesn't want to carry a cumbersome tripod all over the place.

Weight - The Monopod is lightweight and hardly weights anything which is great for travelling.

Safety - The hand strap is good for keeping the pole in reach but does make moving the stand more restrictive. I generally use this when using at events etc just in case some knocks the Monopod.

A great piece of kit, great for the travelling photographer / videographer.

Excellent, well- manufactured product! Very sturdy- but lightweight at the same time... Takes all the load from camera/ lens and most vertical shake is gone. Using it with Sony A77, double battery grip and Tamron 150- 600 glass (total 3,5 kg) and now can shoot all day long without getting Popeye forearms.
A fantastic improvement to picture sharpness.

Very compact and would fit into standard cabin luggage (not recommended, though- you'd have to say goodbye to it at security!).

Price- value hard to beat; would recommend anytime!

If you're after a lightweight, compact travel monopod that can take up to 5 kg: look no further. This is the one to go for.
