The Oben CTM-2400 4-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod 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, making setup a breeze. Maximum height is 59.2", which facilitates comfortable operation for most users.

The CTM-2400 is composed of 6x carbon fiber to achieve its light weight (a mere 0.85 lb) while ensuring its stability. It can bear loads up to 22 lb, so you can mount any DSLR camera with most lenses, a point & shoot model, or even a camcorder.

For fine control over camera orientation, you can also attach a head to the monopod's reversible 3/8"-16 & 1/4"-20 mounting screw. Three set screws underneath the collar enable you to fasten the head securely to the plate. An Allen key is included & attached to the top leg section, so you're always ready to make adjustments.

The monopod collapses to just 18.3", so you can stow it in most carry-on bags. At only 0.85 lb, it's the perfect travel companion – lightweight, compact, and simple to operate – but highly capable and ready in an instant to help you capture the perfect shot.

Reversible 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 screw for mounting any camera or head

        Comments about Oben CTM-2400 4-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod:

        Very lightweight with the carbon fiber tubes. Easy to use (its a monopod...), the friction rings work great and I would trust heavy cameras or large lenses with this monopod. Not the smallest when collapsed, but its small enough to stash easily.

          Comments about Oben CTM-2400 4-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod:

          Decided to purchase a carbon fiber light weight monopod to replace an existing aluminum monopod that literally fell apart. So far, I have been very satisfied with the monopod from Oben, as it has been very solid. By twisting the part that touches the ground you can have it either be used on floors or on dirt.

            My husband bought the monopod for me. I am a photo enthusiast. I photograph mostly Elementary/Middle/High School sporting events. The CTM-2400 4-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod by Oben is extremely durable and easy to use. It is collapses effortlessly. It is also easy to carry. I am very impressed with the durability of this monopod.

              Comments about Oben CTM-2400 4-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod:

              I have used a monopod successfully for years and finally decided to go with a carbon fiber one to save weight. I chose this Oben 4-section model and I am very pleased I did. It is quite well made, easy to use, and works perfectly with my Canon 6D. It feels very solid and the twist locks operate smoothly and quickly, a bit of a surprise. On top of it I use a Manfrotto 234RC tilt head which I have come to know is quicker and easier to use than a fully-functioned ball head. This combination makes for a refreshingly lightweight and useful tool; and the price is very user-friendly, too!

                  Comments about Oben CTM-2400 4-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod:

                  So far I have been very pleased with the Oben CTM-2400. I am primarily using this monopod to stabilize and bear the weight of a moderate-sized lens (EF 400mm f/5.6) while taking wildlife photos. The legs lock and unlock fairly easily, and I prefer the twist-lock design to flip- or screw-locks. The weight is nice, and I have not had any problems with the max height of the monopod. I'm about 5'8", but if you are significantly taller, maybe more than 6'2", you may want an additional leg section depending on your shooting style. Overall, this is a great value, entry-level carbon monopod.

                                    Light, easy to set up, and seems to be very durable.

                                      Bought this to use with a D7000 taking indoor video. Very light and yet sturdy. Convenient to carry once folded. Highly recommend it.

                                      Tried the five section which flexed. The four section is sturdy and is the winner.

                                        I bought it for its light weight and use it mostly with a small video camera I usually have to carry along with one or two heavy still cameras. It works great, though it could be a little taller. But most of the time I have a tilt head mounted on it and that raises it up a few inches. It works very good and it's very sturdy.

                                          This replaced a Tenba monopod lost at a recent event. If it wasn't lost it was destined for a dumpster. The legs never did lock quite right. It was not wearing well.

                                          The Oben is sturdier and appears to be better made. Time will tell.

                                            It was for my wife and it has worked great for her. I bought her the canon 70-200. She need support for the camera as she moved around. This is light weight and yet very sturdy. Great quality.

                                              The monopod is well done and it is not heavy. For the type of use that I will give (kids playing rugby in open fields) is more than enough.
                                              For my height (1.70m), the 4-section is enough. If you are taller, go for the 5-section one.
                                              I also bought the Oben VH-R2 Tilt Head for Monopods, just for the case you need to take a picture in a vertical position.
                                              I recommend this product!
