Product review – the indispensable MONOPOD

Hi guys,

The greatest invention in the 21st century must be the monopod. Have you ever been travelling on your own and you're lying in the sun, enjoying the breeze in a perfect naturist setting all by yourself and you want to take pics to share with people on the Naktiv site but you don't want to get out of your chair? If you're one of those who would like to take a ton of photos and selfies and you want more of yourself and the scenery to be taken but you don't want the hassle of using a tripod, what you need is the monopod.

Just look at this pic. I was holding the monopod in my right hand to take this photo. See how it looks as if the photographer was hovering slightly above in the air.

Now it's getting dark and everyone knows it's hard to hold on to your camera to take a pic of yourself with flash. There's bound to be a glare. But it's no problem if you have the monopod. Here, I'm holding the monopod with my left hand and see how my whole image is captured in the pic and that's something that's impossible if you haven't got the monopod.

It's been a long day hiking up the mountain trail. I'm now nicely ensconced in my chair but I want to take a photo of myself without getting out of the chair. That's no problem if you have the monopod. Now, I'm sure you can tell I was holding the monopod in my right hand and what we have is a photograph that nobody could believe was taken by me while I'm still holding on to the camera.

You're indoors and you're lounging about reading a novel and you don't want to get up. Get hold of the monopod and just look at this pic. You can hardly believe the monopod was in my left hand.

Get the monopod today!!!!

EDITOR:
Oops, I forgot to show the monopod. Here it is. This is the monopod before you pull it out to its full length. It's short and it makes for easy transportation. The small attachment next to it is the iPhone holder. It holds just about any camera phone. The second photo is the monopod after it's been extended to its full length.

  1. Phew, I managed to resize my photos. Otherwise they appear too large on this page. Thanks to Richard Foley for his suggestion. But I find it easier to use my google+ album rather than the album here. I think I'm still not so used to linking pics to the blog on this site. I'm much more at home with google+.

  2. Haha, I've just written a "How not to write a product review". I forgot to show the product I was reviewing. I didn't mention the price. All I did was to show how useful the product was and what excellent pics you could take by yourself with the product!!!! LOL. Anyway, I bought my monopod on ebay for only SGD 11.90 (that's about £6).
