The TrekPod is a unique combination of a lightweight, height-adjustable walking/hiking staff with a fully integrated tripod for cameras, optical devices and almost any other tripod mountable device such as photo lights, microphones, etc. Simply unfasten the touch-fastener loop at the bottom of the TrekPod to extend the three short legs for the tripod mode. With the legs extended, the TrekPod is now a stable but lightweight tripod. In addition, the TrekPod is a height-adjustable, fully functional monopod. The TrekPod converts between all three functions in just seconds. The product incorporates an innovative, quick-release, mount-demount system called MagMount.

The MagMount is an industry-first magnetic quick-release camera and optical device ball head. It provides for the instant attachment of almost any camera, spotting scope, or other device that is mounted via the industry standard 1/4-20 threaded mounting system.

Comes supplied with two plates: Extra light LF (silver) and heavy HG (black) force Mag Adaptors, so that all camera and optical devices are ready for instant attachment to the MagMount.

If you are intend to use the TrekPod with a binocular, you will of course need a standardized 1/4"-20 binocular tripod adapter.

Note: The TrekPod comes with both a ballhead with quick release plate as well as 'cork palmrest' knob, though the latter is installed.

Folds up to 5 components less than 27.5" each with minor disassembly.1) 5/32"/ 4mm Allen wrench required, not included.

          Nice device, but too large

                Comments about Trek-Tech TrekPod - Walking Stick/Monopod w/ Magnetic Quick Release:

                This ingenious device is a very stable monopod, which readily converts to either a walking stick or a tripod. It is well built and sturdy, but my one objection to it is that it doesn't telescope down enough to make it easy to pack in a carry on bag or even a camera backpack. It does have good stability for photography and videography, and a nice quick-release magnet coupling head. It would just be more convenient if it got a bit smaller and more portable.

                      I purchased to use when traveling/hiking. I haven't used it for that yet but think it will work out great. I have used it around town as a test and am happy with how it works. For a <2 lb tripod, it is great. Even as a mono-pod it is great.

                                Comments about Trek-Tech TrekPod - Walking Stick/Monopod w/ Magnetic Quick Release:

                                I am actually purchasing this to replace my original which is over 10 years old. I have used it extensively hiking and traveling through the great North West. Mt. Saint Hellions, Crater Lake, Mt Hood, Mt Baker, it's been to many volcanos! I have a slight problem walking so that feature has also been a great asset. The one option I see being missed here is the Quick Conversion it has to Tripod Use too. For many years all of our Vacation pictures were missing one thing, ME! This unit has a nice 1" thick VELCRO strap that keeps it in Monopod/Walking Stick Mode. You pick it up, loosen the strap, Open the three legs, frame your shot and then get in the action too!

                                They have since updated and improved this model, I love this one so much I'm grabbing one more before they are gone!

                                It's great as both a walking stick and a tripod. But once I put the magnetic attachment for a heavy duty camera on the device, I found that the "Magnetic Quick Release" was neither quick nor easy to accomplish. Finally gave up and used the device as a walking stick without attaching the provided cork knob.

                                    I LOVE versatile equipment, especially to use in the field & to travel with. I purchased this monopod 3 months ago & I have not been disappointed. It comes with a detachable ball/socket camera mount for use with small to medium sized cameras (for larger cameras just remove the mount & attach your own monopod head to it). Given the tripod foldout of the lower section, it can be used as a flash or mic stand & offers some additional stability for camera shooting (but what may be offered by a traditional tripod). The tube has 2 section,s when disconnected each section is no longer than 35" in lenth (for travel I prefer to keep my tripods & stands less than 36"). I am VERY happy with this piece of equipment.
