Ordered: Manfrotto BHDV-1 monopod

I had been thinking about a monopod for a long time but after seeing a few video's on the Manfrotto BHDV-1, I totally fell in love with this model: a true hybrid between a tripod and a monopod. It's got three little legs and a fluidhead, it goes up to 200cm, folds up to 76cm and it's... light! At well under 2 kg it must be the ultimate portable solution. Aside from a carbon fiber version that would be a hefty extra investment... Anyway, it appears that once you've got a taste of this monopod, youre hooked. Here's some tricks on using that monopod.


  1. Dit is toevallig... ik ben ook op zoek naar dit model. Werk nu met n gewone monopod van meneer Manfrotto. Mag ik vragen waar te bestellen? Ik denk niet dat je de hoofdprijs hebt betaals want 300e is best flink aan de prijs ;)


  2. Calumet verkoopt ze voor 250,- incl shipping. Goedkoper krijg je 'm niet, volgens mij! (is alleen momenteel niet op voorraad...)
