The best monopod in 2024

The best monopods can provide you with extra support to help take the weight of big telephoto lenses for extended periods, they can cut camera shake at slower shutter speeds in low light, and they’re great for adding stability to video. But while a monopod might seem like a very simple device, there is a huge range of different options on the market with different advantages and drawbacks.

The quality of the build of monopods can vary greatly, as can their height, weight and maximum payload. Some monopods have more leg sections than others, some have stabilising feet that can sometimes also be used as mini tripods, and some even double as video sliders or have their own levelling heads.
