The Best Monopod IN THE WORLD! – DigiDIRECT TV Ep 065

This week on DDTV,  Blunty reveals and reviews one of his secret tools for kickass results… the Manfrotto MF 560B-1 Fluid Monopod

The Manfrotto 560B-1 Fluid Monopod brings portability and quality together with its lightweight, stable and fluid design

Designed for compact mini DV and HDV cameras and photo applications, the 560B-1 monopod is highly portable and offers fold up stainless steel feet for additional stability on uneven ground.

The 560B Fluid Monopod is lightweight yet tough. For additional stability on uneven ground, the monopod features stainless steel knobbed feet, which also fold for compact transportation. At the base, a pivot allows for more extensive tilt capabilities and an additional fluid cartridge allows for additional smooth and flawless panning.

Its easy lock-off knob secures the current angle setting for angle consistency and stability. The 560B-1 Fluid Monopod also features a counterbalance to help keep weight centered for a steadier camera.
