Reap the benefits of a monopod with the stability of a tripod using the Benro A38FD Series 3 Aluminum Monopod with 3-Leg Locking Base. Able to hold up to 39.7 lb and extend to 61", the A38FD Series 3 is a versatile camera support thanks to its base which provides three solid points of contact with the ground. The base acts like a mini tripod, and its ball joint allows you to smoothly pan and tilt your camera. If using a pan head on the monopod, the base's ball joint can be locked so that you can pan with the head independently, or you can replace the base with the included rubber foot. The four leg sections are secured by flip locks, and it folds down to 21.3" for transport.
