You're serious? Just in terms of vibration dampening, carbon is far superior. Kind of important when it comes to heavier gear attached or when getting knocked about in the wind.

Generally, yes. Though you may end up with quite a bit of residual vibrations from adjustments, hitting the shutter button, etc. It can get to be a problem unless you're working with a fast shutter speed, or you're prepared to set a shutter delay. Wired/wireless remotes can help here, especially when in bulb mode.

Sounds like this could work for you:

or this (aluminum cheaper option):

Thanks, I appreciate the suggestions. Nice tripods, and I have 3 that I uses, yet I don't like twist locks, but for a monopod, carbonfiber, I would do it for $50

The weight difference is not huge UNLESS you hike a lot and have gear packed on your back etc. Otherwise I like my aluminum tripods. I have to admit, I have looked at a couple and they were around $400-800 years back looking at them. SO I never bothered. But weight comparison is not a big difference for most uses.

I have the Manfrotto with legs, Heavy yet great. I also have a German lightweight Cullmann, but flimsy legs. I purchased a $180 model that won a 3D Design award or something, and that had many flaws , I returned, and I also bought a Benro that was better than the design winner, yet would not fold down right with a single poor design flaw. ...So this for 50 IS great, but I doubt I would be able to "unlock" the stick and position it off the straight axis and such, even with the $45 legs....Maybe just as a walking, and sport stick, it maybe worth it.
Yes I can unlock the tri legs and pivot off center axis with my setup.

I love the monopod for the convenience and stablity while taking a number of shots over a longer period of time with a DSLR (primarily kids sports activities). I'm on my 2nd Veo non-carbon monopod, I don't have the model numbers handy but I upgraded from a shorter version of the carbon fiber one (CM-264) to a taller one (I'm 6'1") to avoid bending while taking sports photography. The 2nd one is sturdier but also significantly thicker as it has an additional section for extension. The carbon fiber version was $50 more and being a SDer I saved the money.

Caution on the height, if you're over 6', I suspect this model will be 2-3" too short which may be just enough to bother over a 1-2 hour time period (seriously).

Lever clamps vs twist locks, I prefer the latter. Quick and easy, with no protruding parts.

Thanks! I was thinking about getting this as a gift for my husband who's an avid photogropher, and was thinking i may be able to borrow it in my offtime to use with my phone, Seems like the adapter would be a good idea.
They sell adapters on amazon... I just ordered one to mount my iPad so that I can get a better angle for video calls...

Anyone have any recommendations for monopod feet that would be compatible with this?

Try it at the beach or in dessert fine sand and you will think twice. Try it in snow with snow gloves and you will think no more and opt for Lever locks. Super fast with no BS. :-)

I had a Twist lock, and thought how sleek and clever...until I thought again Mad
