Giottos monopods are the convenient, easy to carry solution for stable photography. Taking up less space and weighing less than tripods, mono pods are single-legged mounting platforms for cameras, weapons, and spotting scopes. Monopods by Giottos are specifically designed for photography, with quick release heads for fast camera swapping and a full range of movement for as many shooting angles as you need. These monopods are either built from tough aluminum or ultra-lightweight carbon fiber, each with its distinct advantages. Giottos manufactures their photography mono-pods in several different styles; all have one-handed leg adjustment functionality, but some have twisting locks while others have the easier to operate lever locks. Whichever monopod you choose, you can be sure you'll be getting the best combination of value, quality, and functionality with a Giottos photography monopod.
