The Manfrotto XPRO Video Monopod is currently a top seller, but when you compare it to the Libec HFMP Video Monopod product, I've found several reasons why I would prefer to switch over.

First big reason is stability. You can't beat the size of Libec's HFMP Video Monopod Feet. Second reason why I would choose the HFMP over the XPRO is because you can quickly Lock / Unlock the base with a simple stepping motion.

Now if you were to purchase the Libec HFMP Combo which includes the TH-X Dual Mount Video Head, you're getting a fully operating head with Pan and Tilt controls, whereas Manfrotto's kit will not have a fully functional head. With the TH-X Head you can then use it on a Slider (as seen here), on a set of Tripod Sticks with a flat 3/8" base, or even on a Tripod with 65mm half bowl.

The feet on the HFMP Monopod is removable along with the Fluid Head, so you can separate it if you have to break it down. The Libec HFMP Monopod KIT not only includes a video head and carrying case, it also includes a bowl clamp for 65mm tripod usage and a hexagon wrench for preferred adjustments.

It's possible to purchase each of the Libec HFMP or Manfrotto XPRO Video Monopods without a head and you can add your own. The benefit to Manfrotto's is that it collapses 5" shorter, extends about 5" taller, and is about 1.2lbs lighter. But if you're looking for optimum stability nothing currently compares to the HFMP. Libec is also bringing better value at cheaper retail pricing than the XPRO system.

One way to make your videos a little more interesting is to simply move the camera. Although that sounds easy, performing smooth camera movements handheld can be very tricky. While there are many tools available to do this, nothing is more simple, straightforward, or as easy to operate than a Video Slider. Here's a look at the new 'Duzi', which is the latest, most affordable, and lightest video slider coming out of the Cinevate product line.

On the surface, the Cinevate Duzi is simple, but that's primarily what we want. Something easy to setup, easy to move around, and doesn't get in the way when it's time to shoot. The Duzi is crafted from CNC machined aluminum and stainless steel, with the exception of the solid 19mm Carbon Rods.

The carbon rods not only shed weight, but offer near silent operation when tracking with 8 precision roller bearings. These carbon rods never need to be oiled, and the open design makes it easy to clean and wipe down no matter what conditions you take the Duzi into. Duzi's end blocks offer 1/4-20 threaded holes and 5/8 inch thru holes to support dual stands. A middle cheese plate below the Duzi allows tripod mounting.
