Tag Archives: Carbon Fiber Monopod


I'm packing up for a short trip this week and planning to shoot video with a couple of small GH3 cameras, so I thought I would just share this little tip. I'm a fan of video monopods with folding feet, but this week I want to pack light and the $300 dollar Manfrotto 561BHDV is just too big to fit in a standard carry on size case.

This Benro version I have uses a twist lock type Carbon Fiber Monopod which is very easy to disassemble into two pieces. The entire video monopod is super lightweight and is perfect for the small setup i'm going to be using. These types of monopods are highly recommended for anyone shooting with small video cameras. The Benro Video Monopods are sold through various retailers, but over on eBay you can find them for under $135 dollars (with fluid head).

If you're looking for a lightweight Carbon Fiber Monopod, here's a great deal. This Rokinon Carbon Fiber 5 section monopod is selling for just $39 + FREE SHIPPING (USA domestic). If you want to throw a monopod into your airline carry on bag, 21" is about the max length you should be looking for. This Rokinon is perfect since it can collapse down to just 18", yet extends to a max height of 65" inches. I've looked around for other deals, but could not find this type of minimum-maximum range in another Carbon Fiber Monopod at this price. It's worth taking a look at. Includes: carrying case for easy hands free transporting. Check it out via eBay (Click here).
