The SHAPE MONOPOD WITH QUICK PLATE is an extremely lightweight yet sturdy one-legged camera support that enables you to capture steady shots without needing to carry or set up a full tripod. The monopod has an anti-rotation shaft, so its twist locks can be disengaged all at once to deploy each leg stage instantly. Minimum height is 26”. Maximum height is 72", which facilitates comfortable operation for almost all users. For fine control over camera orientation, the ball head rotates 360°, it can support a load up to five pounds, and has a 1/4"-20 mount. The SHAPE v-mount quick plate release is specially designed for professional monopods and can be attached and removed quickly and easily. It is compatible with your tripod and monopod using the 3/8-16 and 1/4-20 thread.
