With the Manfrotto Compact Monopod, you'll be instantly ready to start photographing. That's because the advantage of a monopod is that you don't have to set it up. This makes the monopod suitable for the novice photographer who wants to take more stable shots, while still being able to react quickly. It only weighs 331 grams, so it's easy to take with you on a long hike. The Manfrotto has a comfortable grip, and the wrist strap prevents you from dropping the monopod.
