Product Highlights
  • 26.4 lb Load Capacity
  • 66.8" Maximum Height
  • Collapses to 23.2"
  • Three Mini-Legs Emerge from Foot
  • All Anodized Aluminum for Max Durability
  • Adjustable Flip Locks for Leg Sections
  • Wrist Strap with Belt Clip

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.

    I bought this unit to replace the monopod and tripod I have, but quite disappointed, because it is much heavier than mono and not stable as tri. The only benefit is carrying one unit instead of two. If you use the legs, they won't stay tied to the unit, it unscrews by itself with any movement.

          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 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.

                  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.

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

                                  This monopod is a bit on the heavy side, but is a solid performer. Will take the weight of your equipment and provide a steady, stable support. The fold out legs come in handy as well. I've used it in a pinch as a speed light stand. The only criticism would be the legs banging around when stored, but a bit of tape on the shafts will fix that annoyance.

                                  The monopod is quite versatile in that it gives you the option of a stable free-standing platform when needed. The included reversible 1/4" or 3/8" thread is good for landscape shots. You can of course add a head for increased versatility.

                                  It is slightly heavy but it seems well-constructed. As previously mentioned, the mini-legs do rattle a bit inside the monopod.

                                    So far, I have the monopod and its feet for group portraits that include me (using a remote shutter release) and for shots of birds at the feeder just outside of our enclosed backporch. Perfect in both instances. Also, its compactness will be great when I take my shooting on the road in the spring.

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

                                      Pros:
                                      Very well made using high quality material.
                                      Sturdy.
                                      The built in 3 'tripod' legs are quite strong, but a little wobbly, probably best used on a solid flat surface like concrete. I don't think it would collapse and fall, but any sort of breeze would render it less than steady.

                                      Cons:
                                      I would have liked to be able to remove the 3 inbuilt steel tripod legs to reduce weight and still have a base to put on the ground, not the hole that it leaves when the legs are removed.

                                      Pretty heavy to cart around, see above comment.

                                      All in all, not a bad product.

                                        This in exactly as I expected. I am using it for photography and video with my Nikon 5100.

                                        It does what it promises as a decent support in a pinch where tripods are not allowed. But not even close to being as stable as a cheap tripod. I am glad to have it for shooting on the street or in somewhat crowded places. It's as heavy as my carbon tripod and pretty noisy to carry around. I'll replace it once I find something better, but for now it's the best I can find.
