i order Manfrotto MM290C4US 290 Carbon Fiber Monopod review

when i get my Manfrotto MM290C4US 290 Carbon Fiber Monopod (Black) i will post review on this item. i use one on weekend i took picks from airshow when was on buddy roof near airport. have great time with it. was also about to hold monopod and take tilt backward pics and tilt backward and turn pics with one. when i get this in mail by Thursday or Friday will have chance to try it out sat or Sunday morning when do little nature walk with camera. the cost for monopod was $94.88 Manfrotto MM290C4US 290 Carbon Fiber Monopod (Black) also might get ball head for this since can added flexibility and swivel.

if was not so hazy i could give true review of the monopod today. went out to take some pics at beach but dam wind and sand blowing all over place make pictures look so bad i could not give good review. do to fact hard camera to keep locked on people so far away surfing on beach. also could not see screen so good enough to know if pictures coming good or not. so when i went to look at so bad from haze i got. plus people so far out camera could not focus on them good enough from haze and trying to lock on them. also could not see if pictures had white noise or looked to dark. with all haze from sand from beach being tossed in the air. my 70-300mm could reach them and get proper lock on them. so will be out Tuesday and Wednesday to try at other place with monopod. i like way it feels and how easy it holds. i might get a Tilt Head or swivel head for it too. since will let me move it around with out having to pic up monopod. i also notice from where i stood i need 500mm to 600mm lenses to get close up shoots that make people look great.

so far it give 4 1/2 stars or 8 out of 10 do to fact when windy out side hard to keep it straight. also fact i live in area where grounds can be uneven do to sand or marsh area. it works great i have no issue but with wind making hard to keep it straight when on uneven ground do to sand or marsh area of east coast of CFL area in Melbourne area. i also like fact make easy to hold when want to shot of bird or plane or something flying over you and you can hold camera steady with it. sucks with all smoke and sand blowing around hard to take see of pictures have to much white noise or not enough white noise since screen to light to see with sun on it. when i did get chance to test out after work.
