Some monopods have feet as a feature.

This adds stability without needing the same space as a tripod.

Swivel Heads

They are extremely durable and provide for you extraordinary structural solidness for sharp photographs.

You are easily able to tilt your camera forward and backward with ease.

Quick-Release Mounts

As far as quick-release mounts, there are swivel heads and quick-release mounts.

Don’t have a few seconds?  The quick-release feature saves you the time of having to thread the mounting screw into the bottom of your camera.

Shoulder Straps

Why not use the 2 things we take for granted and use them to carry things?

Shoulder straps free up your hands so you can carry more pieces of equipment.

Hand Straps

Using a Monopod with a hand strap really is a personal preference.

I like mine and most photographers enjoy the ease of allowing the Monopod to hang freely.

Carbon Fiber

Monopods are extremely lightweight; however, Carbon Fiber Monopods are even lighter!

Carbon Fiber Monopods and tripods are solid.  They have a vibration-dampening characteristic that makes them very valuable.

Tips

Inspect you rubberized tip to make sure it is still intact

I prefer the combination metal point-rubber pad.  To switch from the rubber to the metal tip and vice versa, simply turn until your choice is selected.

Pistol-Grip Ball Head

These are great on tripods but extreme weight is felt when used on my lightweight Monopod!

These are extremely easy to use and they quickly adjust to any angle.  Their stability is uncanny!

Holsters

Don’t like the shoulder strap?  Try the holster.

Worn on a belt, these easy to use pouches/holsters offer support for the base of a Monopod.
