    Shoot!! Wrong title. I meant opteka. But, since its up..I will also consider any options of a sub-$150 manfrotto monopod that is good. I am open to about anything. I am looking at monopods lately and I like the Canon 100 model. Does anyone have experience with the Canon 100 monopod? I dont shoot canon, but I like the look of the monopod. I also like the Opteka MP100 (many people seem to like this one also). Anyone have any input on these two?

    Opteka:
    Amazon.com: Opteka MP100 67" Pro Photo / Video Monopod: Electronics

    Canon:
    Amazon.com: Canon Monopod 100 for SLR Cameras & Lenses: Electronics

    Thanks.
    Mark

    well i can tell you just by looking that the Canon is probably better. I mean for that prices just grab it.

    Irrespective of any other issue, the Canon has a ball head. You'd soon find that trying to mount the camera on the flat surface of the Opteka was really annoying.
