Giottos MV Light Duty Photographic Monopod MV8250 is a lightweight, versatile photography tool that helps you get stable shots wherever you need them. These Giottos monopods are strong enough to be carted around to the ends of the earth, but light enough to be hung on a wall or carried on a backpack. With only four sections, these light duty monopods can still extend up to 157 cm and fold down to just 55 cm, giving you plenty of options when it comes to perspective. The head mechanism of the Giottos Light Duty Four Section Monopod also lets you get creative with your shots, since it has a 3-way pan head and a self-adjusting platform. You can use the handle to both tilt and lock the mono-pod in place, and a quick release lever allows you to swap out your mounted device for another digital camera or camcorder in just a few seconds. Giottos has outfitted this photo mono-pod with a neoprene grip and sturdy safety strap to facilitate carrying or to tie down the monopod in a carrying bag or backpack, and a rubber foot with a retractable spike gives you a more stable shooting surface both on slick surfaces and outdoors. For a lightweight but versatile photography monopod, slip the Giottos MV Twist Lock Mono Pod in your camera case.
