To anyone buying a Monopod for Video, do yourself a favor and get one with longer fold-able legs. It's a game changer. Allows you to throw a lighter setup on it and you can walk away confidently without feeling like a small breeze will knock it over. It's a lifesaver if you work weddings and need to run and gun.
