The Oben ACM-2400L 4-Section Aluminum Self-Standing Monopod with Mini-Legs is an extremely sturdy camera support of the one-legged variety, but with a twist: Unscrew the bottom, and from the lower section of the monopod emerge three 9" aluminum legs that flip out to form a miniature tripod at the base. With this function, you can take your monopod to areas where tripods are prohibited, such as certain tourist attractions, and capture steady shots without the usual need to hold onto your monopod for dear life.

The three leg stages of the ACM-2400L descend to achieve a maximum height of 66.8", which facilitates comfortable operation for almost all users. Not only tall, this is quite a robust piece of gear: It bears up to 26.4 lb, so add just about any head, camera & lens combination that you want. The monopod's rubber-footed mini-legs, foam grip, and wrist strap will conspire to keep your setup stable.

The flip locks of the ACM-2400L are adjustable, which means you can use the included Allen key to tighten them if they expand and loosen slightly due to normal wear & tear. You can also adjust the action of the locks to suit your operating preference. Leg stages descend easily and lock into place securely, so setup is a breeze. The ACM-2400L is composed of anodized aluminum to ensure its solidity.

For fine control over camera orientation, 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. The Allen key is attached to the top leg section, so you're always ready to make adjustments.

This leggy monopod is extremely compact for its (small) product class, collapsing to 23.2" to make it easily transportable. The self-standing ACM-2400L will handle with aplomb many one-of-a-kind shooting situations.

Reversible 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 screw for mounting any camera or head
Foam grip mitigates the effects of extreme temperatures and protects your camera by ensuring that your grip doesn't slip
For a second line of security and more stable shooting, wrap the attached strap snugly around your wrist
Wrist strap features belt clip for convenient hands-free carrying
Mini-tripod unit unscrews, folds out, and screws back into place quickly & easily without the need for tools

    The Oben monopod proved to be a real workhorse on a recent nighttime shoot at the National Mall. The extending mini-legs give it additional stability, but even without the leg support the monopod helped me keep the camera steady for long (1/4 second) night time exposures. The Oben had no problem accommodating my Canon T2i with 15-85mm lens (a heavy duo) and was easy to tote around both in the park and on the subway. Highly recommended.

    The chicken foot at the bottom does not make it very steady. Even with a small 50mm lens on my Canon 5D Mk II, it is wobbly. I feel I'm just as stable with my old standby monopod. I am returning it.

      Comments about Oben ACM-2400L 4-Section Aluminum Self-Standing Monopod with Mini-Legs:

      I choose the Oben Monopod for two reasons, stoutness and price. I have had the opportunity to handle several other pods, some were carbon fiber. Niece product if you are ready to pony up the dollars. Locking latches on leg work smoothly, conversion to the 4 mini-legs is simple and work very effectively. All in all gives me a great camera mount for wildlife and etc.

        Monopod slightly bigger folded than I had envisioned but the full extension with the included feet make it very versatile. Satisfied my expectations and needs.

          Comments about Oben ACM-2400L 4-Section Aluminum Self-Standing Monopod with Mini-Legs:

          I bought this monopod because of the mini-legs, expecting that it would serve as a lightweight alternative to a tripod in quick photo and video assignments. But it doesn't. When the monopod leg is extended it becomes very unstable. Even when you take your hands off the camera it continues to shake for a couple of seconds.

          So it is unstable with the legs and heavy (because of the legs) when you just want to use it as a "regular" monopod.

                  I am a semi-pro and needed a tool to use due to a steady shake of my hands.
                  The stand does the job well. Easy to extend and retract. Locking head is also easy to mount and remove camera from its place.
                  Constructed well and a great monopod for many uses.
                  I don't know if I would take it on a long hike but great otherwise.

                  This Mono/Tripod is very handy to have and easy to set up quickly. It will not replace a good sturdy tripod but it is definitely a good handy item to have in a pinch. The legs are stored in the shaft of the monopod and just takes about 30-40 seconds to unscrew splay and screw back in. You have true no hands needed support for the quick run and gun shots were you need the stability.

                          Comments about Oben ACM-2400L 4-Section Aluminum Self-Standing Monopod with Mini-Legs:

                          I recently puchased this monopod bundled with the VH-R2 Tilt Head for use taking video with a DSLR camera and 18-250 zoom lens.It is not as compact as I like when I am carrying equipment long distances for instance in some hiking trail settings, but as a sturdy base for a camera or video camera at a wedding or sports event it works great.
                          I like the feet on the bottom and I think the sturdiness when they are used more than makes up for any inconvenience unscrewing the bottom and then screwing it back to activate them. They are wide enough that I could let go of my DSLR and not worry about it tipping over. I will comment more about the swivel head when I review it, but just a note here that the VH-R2 head that came bundled with this monopod does not swivel horizontally which is ok for a monopod but is a slight problem when the feet are extended.
                          All in all I'm very happy with this purchase and will get a lot of use out of it.

                              This is best monopod ever. Lightweight, sturdy and easy to operate. I love it! Didn't know anything like this was on the market. B&H makes my job a heck of lot more fun.

                                Had problems to start with as I lost an unknown part and never found it. I called the manufacturer's rep and was told what I needed. I will use the monopod for soccer, field hockey and basketball. It fills the bill.

                                I am just learning about taking photo's with a DSL camera. I liked the design of this item for the use of the legs to hold the camera while taking photos at our daughters cheer competitions from the bleachers then being able to use just the pole from the sidelines. The only issue is when the legs are folded and in the base they are very loud. I found taking a section of electrical tape and wrapping the legs helps.

                                  I use this monopod on the places where tripod is restricted. For me, It serve its purpose. the only downside of this product is the weight,and i have to buy a bag for it.

                                      Received the monopod and it seems to be made well. Great quality and sturdy construction. When the legs are out the monopod is shakier than I would have expected when the camera is attached.

                                        I find a very robust equipment designed with hex key system to adjust the clamps at your preference. Easily supports a video Cam over 18 lb to move fast and shoot with an alternate system to heavy tripod or unsatable shoulder. Very recomendable with a tilt head.
