The Ries Monopod was designed in response to photographers' requests for a compact and lightweight monopod for field use. It is useful when extra support is needed for the small hand camera, or use in sporting events and action photography. It is also an ideal brace for larger cameras during windy conditions, or when long lenses require additional stability. The M600 has a crown size of 2” and is available with 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 mounting screws. A zippered cordura carrying case is included. It is made standard from hard rock maple.
