Quality/Usability : Monopods doesn't take up a lot of space. It's lightweight, portable and great for sports, hiking and if you're a traveling photographer. Monopods also offer that extra stability.

The Fotopro NGC-65 has been out for a while but it's still a great monopod to have.


The Fotopro NGC-65 Carbon Fiber Monopod is constructed using 8x layer carbon fibre tubing making this an exceptionally strong professional monopod. It includes a carry bag, waist holster, pamphlet and hex tool. As you can see, the monopod is really small. It measures 16 inches when folded and 57 inches when fully extended. It weighs under 1 lb.


Adjusting the height of the NGC-65 monopod is a real breeze. The monopod has 4 sections. With their ergonomic G-Lock system, extending or collapsing your monopod, to your desired length only requires a ¼ turn — instead of twisting and tightening. The molded rubber locks are easy to handle even when wearing gloves.


The NGC-65 also has a bunch of height markers on the first drop down section so you can accurately measure how high the monopod is to be. The highest is 57 inches (1460mm). I'm 5' 9" and when it's fully extended, the monopod (without ballhead) comes up to about my collarbone. Once you add a ballhead and mount your camera, it's about the perfect height you'll need to take pictures.


The 1/4" and 3/8" dual thread screw gives you the choice to attach either a camera or a ball head.

Conclusion : Overall, the Fotopro NGC-65 Carbon Fiber Monopod is a sturdy monopod at a reasonable price. It's lightweight and easily portable. No ballhead is included so you'll need to supply your own.
