Update: The more I think about it the more I feel this could be my main support unit for video in the field. In an interview situation I would use the full tripod, but running and gunning this lightweight monopod tripod hybrid might be a real life saver. If I do use it in the field (dump) and it does not work for me I can always go to the larger and heavier big film Gizto tripod. Hate to spend more money yet again but this might turn into one of the most important buys.
Here is a review video for the Blackmagic pocket camera, the camera is being used on the street of New York in combo with a Sirui tripod (probably the P-424S).
