The 560B-1 Fluid Monopod for lightweight MiniDV and HDV cameras is another world-first product from Manfrotto designed to help videographers get superior images. We ve incorporated a fluid cartridge into the base of the monopod for incredibly smooth, jump-free panning actions. The three pivoting, retractable feet ensure a firm footing while the quick release tilt top with angle lock knob lets you frame more creatively. All of this in a compact support ideal for use in tight spaces or environments where a tripod may not be allowed, such as sports stadiums, conferences and museums.

560B lighter monopod for DSLR video
Lighter than DV monopod and does not have pan head, but that makes it easier to carry and use both for stationary shots with the feet, quick moving shots as a monopod or as a handy quick steady cam substitute for casual video.

I love the product.
I use the monopod with a small video camera. It's very lightweight and opens quickly. I don't like the tripod legs too much as they snap when you move from one location to another, but I like it's versatility.

I bought this monopod to use on a trip to Beijing. It was amazing. The base allows for smooth pans and the feet are very strong. I used it with a Panasonic HDC-SD1 camera. The only downside is it's length when it is folded up but this was never a problem
