Sometimes you're not allowed to use a tripod, or it's inconvenient to do so, for examples at concerts, sports games, or crowded locations. A monopod is a useful and compact alternative. Collpased, the Sirui P-326 only measures 38cm. The legs slide out in 6 sections until the tripod is 154cm high. Another advantage is that the monopod is
made from carbon; a strong and light material. By adding a tripod head to the monopod, you increase your freedom of movement.
