The ProMaster MPV428+ Monopod is a great solution for both videography and still photography. Its retractable base incorporates a ball joint with tension lock to provide smooth, easy movements. It has three points of contact for great stability on a variety of surfaces. The base is also removable, allowing the MPV428+ to convert to a traditional monopod with single, rubber foot. The innovative PROlocks allow for quick opening and powerful closing of the monopod sections with one hand.
