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

    Maybe you just turned to this monopod with tripod capability for the same reasons as mine- tripods are cumbersome. You need to extend three legs undoing the many locks and that doesn't allow you to quickly be ready for shooting.

    I was at Grand Canyon with my tripod, trying to shoot the dawn, changing places, hurrying not to miss the light that'll never be the same in the next second. While tripods are made to provide great stability if you want to stay put and keep shooting, they are not exactly what you want to have when you want to move around more.

    This one is perfect for you if you are such active photographer. It sure provides you with lot of mobility, giving you a good stability simultaneously. It's finish is very cool too.

    The downsides, as I see it, are the weight and mini legs. It's sturdy but pretty heavy, that's what I first thought when I held it right out of the box. Also, I think this can't totally replace your tripod. It does have mini legs and that does enable the monopod stand by itself, allowing it to function as a tripod. It becomes kind of rickety when it stands with the mini legs. I wonder what'll happen when the wind is blowing; you wouldn't probably want to leave your dear camera on this thing in such case. So if you are out there, hoping this will totally replace your tripod, it's not going to work like that. After all, it's a monopod with "mini legs", which you need to keep in mind.

    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.

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

    If you ever buy another A mono pod or another monopod this is definitely the one to get. It is extremely versatile and foldaway legs are incredible and strong. I shoot weddings and events every weekend and this thing is at my side at all times. Excellent buy for pros and amateurs alike.

        I absolutely love this Monopod. I hated dragging a tripod along with me when I was going to photograph birds. The monopod is so light that I never hesitate to take it on photo shoots. It holds the camera steady and even has mini-legs that give added support if needed. I highly recommend this.

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

            As a sports photographer, monopods are essential and I have gone through several brands and models either misplacing them or breaking them. I though I'd like this mini-legs version for when I'm editing on the side of a football field while shooting so I wouldn't have to balance my lens on the signage board or in between my legs. However, the weight, and the locking mechanisms cancel out any of the benefits.

            A ball head is absolutely required, and the head that I got adds a few pounds onto the set up, making me less mobile.

            An Allen Key (hex wrench) is included and I feel I need to carry it with me every time as the screws need tightening or loosening all the time, which is a complete hassle.

            I do not recommend this for those who require a light monopod- it's much heavier and cumbersome than I thought (ordered online)

            And don't expect the legs to be stable. this does not replace a tripod for stabilisation.

                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.

                            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.

                                For the lower end model in the line, this is a good product.

                                  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.

                                    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.

                                          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.
