(based on 3 ratings)
Brand: Bogen
Located in: Monopods
With the same NeoTec opening and closing mechanism as the 458B tripod, the 685B monopod is designed for support without sacrifice. It couldn?t be easier or faster to set up! Just pull the monopod leg downwards to open and automatically lock it in any position, with no screws, knobs or levers to tighten or loosen. Then, to fold it back up again, pull the mechanism release trigger and push the leg closed.

Features

  • Special aluminum alloy used in the aeronautical industry.
  • Combines the same leg release technology developed for the 458B Neotec Tripod and the design concept of the 3245 Automatic Monopod.
  • Wrist carrying strap included.

Comments about Bogen Monopod Neotec Pro Photo 685B:

I've used the Bogen monopod several times since it arrived, and am very impressed. I'm well over 6' tall, and it extends enough for me to use without having to crouch at all. It expands and contracts quickly, easily and very quietly, which is crucial in wildlife and bird photography. It is definitely strong enough to handle my camera and big lenses.

It is heavy and fairly large even when contracted, but those are minor cons in relation to all the positive features. I am very happy with this purchase!

Comments about Bogen Monopod Neotec Pro Photo 685B:

I have used this while shooting soccer and softball tournaments. It's quick open/close feature with use of the handle and foot at the base is very reliable. The max height on this is great for me (am 6'1") and allows me to stand comfortable w/out having to partianly hunch over like the 680. Used with a D200 w/batt grip, and 300 2.8 mounted, monopod stood up very well against the weight and helped me deliver great results.
