Digital Camera World Verdict

To get real value out of the SupaDupa Pro you need to be a real monopod fan. Unlike cheaper monopods, it’s a little too expensive to get as a ‘just-in-case’ accessory. It’s going to be best suited to photographers and videographers who use a monopod all the time, or who would do if someone only made the right kind. Well, maybe Benro just did!

Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

The Benro SupaDupa Pro MSDPL46C is a high-end example of a camera accessory that’s often poorly understood and certainly isn’t glamorous. Monopods don’t have the obvious appeal of a tripod, which will stand up on its own and offers a firm, unmoving support. Instead, they are a support ‘aid’ that you still have to hold on to.
