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.
