Once you try a monopod, it’s hard to go back, they’re smaller, lighter and more convenient than a tripod.
The VEO 2s CM-264TBP is a monopod with added features, compact fold-up feet at the base for extra stability and a panhandle ball head.
Those extra features add to the functionality and make it a good choice for both wildlife and sport. The feet add extra level of stability that also makes the Vanguard VEO 2s CM-264TBP a great choice for on-the-move video, as well as the more traditional stills use.
Monopods always seem like a great idea, compact, lightweight and easy to use.
They’re also that one piece of kit that I often hear photographers deliberating over, I have a tripod, do I really need a monopod as well?
The standard answer is yes, they’re incredibly useful, on those days when you’re just going out for a hike and don’t want to take a tripod, that’s when the monopod comes into play.
If you’re shooting wildlife, sports, air or an event, a monopod can come in very handy. It gives you fast support and flexibility, well beyond what’s possible with a tripod.
Today with the rise of video a monopod is also a great tool for adding that little extra support when out filming. Again it provides support but also plenty of flexibility.
