      Comments about Manfrotto 558B Video MonoPod including 501PL Sliding Quick Release Plate:

      After doing online research I decided on this monopod. Very happy with it's performance so far. I do semi-professional video at Horse Events which I then sell to clients. I have to pan and zoom a lot and also move quickly from one arena to another. This monopod makes it all very easy and is light enough for a small lady to carry all day in the hot sun. Highly recommend.
