Versatile Video Support:

- The monopod features a 4-section design that allows for easy height adjustment. It can be extended to a maximum height of 79.9 inches, providing additional reach and flexibility for various shooting scenarios. The minimum height is 30.7 inches.
- The monopod and fluid head are constructed from lightweight aluminum, making them easy to transport and carry. The entire setup weighs approximately 4.6 pounds, making it suitable for on-the-go shooting.
Patented Power-Lock Flip Locks:
- The Manfrotto Monopod+ line features patented Power-Lock flip locks that snap open and closed, ensuring fast and secure operation when extending or collapsing the monopod. These locks provide a tight and reliable lock to keep your camera equipment stable.
- The integrated FLUIDTECH base includes a “3D” fluid cartridge that facilitates smooth pans and tilts from a single connection point. The fluid cartridge may be locked vertically to isolate movement to the 360° panning axis, allowing for smooth, level, uninterrupted rotation.
Modified 500 Series Fluid Head:
- The monopod includes a 500-series fluid head with a counter-balanced mechanism that allows the user to tilt the camera forward and backward. The head can be used while moving freely or locked in place using a side-mounted knob. A long control arm is provided for easy control of the head’s movement.
Quick Release Plate:
- A 500-series quick release plate is included, allowing for quick vertical mounting and dismounting of your camera or camcorder on the fluid head.
Rubber Leg Warmer and Hand Strap:
- The monopod is equipped with a rubber leg warmer for an improved grip and an adjustable hand strap for added security and ease of handling.
- A 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 mounting thread is provided under the 500 series head, allowing you to use the monopod without a head for direct camera mounting.
