Review of the Manfrotto Modo 790B monopod

Manufacturer: Manfrotto
Model: Modo 790B monopod
Price: £17

For when there’s not room to splay out the legs of the tripod, the five-section monopod is a stylish and solid, yet lightweight, construction with a maximum extendable height of 17.1 inches (44.5cm), down to a minimal 6.9 inches (17.5cm). A rubber cap protects the screw thread at the top. Designed to support a weight up to 1kg, we comfortably attached a Nikon D70 and lens without any stability problems.

For outdoor photographers, there is an optional bag available and the pricing can’t be argued with.


A practical and easy to carry option that doesn’t cost the earth.

Solid construction, ease of use, price

Not the highest monopod on the market
