In some situations, the use of a tripod isn't permitted or is very awkward. Examples include concerts, sports games, or crowded areas. A monopod is a very useful and compact alternative. Ccollapsed, the Sirui P-306 is only 38cm. The legs can slide out in 6 sections until the tripod is 154cm high. By adding a tripod head to the monopod,
you'll increase your freedom of movement.
