The Oben ACM-1400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod is a lightweight, sturdy one-legged camera support that enables you to capture steady shots without needing to carry or set up a full tripod. The monopod's flip-lock leg stages descend easily and lock into place securely, so setup is a breeze. Maximum height is 61", which facilitates comfortable operation for most users. It can support up to 17.6 lb, so you can mount any DSLR camera with most lenses, a point & shoot model, or even a compact 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 19.2", so you can stow it in most carry-on bags. At only 1.05 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
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

      I purchased this monopod to use while taking wildlife photo's on long walks instead of a heavier, bulkier tripod. With practice it adds almost as much stability as a tripod and is much easier to carry. It is cleverly engineered to make switching between both bolt sizes quick and easy. Although it is useful without a ball head, it is much easier to use with one. The Oben micro ballhead (BD-0) is a bit small and hard to adjust if the large base plate is left on, but works well with the plate removed.

        Comments about Oben ACM-1400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod:

        I use it with a flag carrier, like carrying a flag in a parade. The closed monopod holds the camera at eye level and I can brace against a fence, post, tree, or a pew in a church. I can move about quickly and set up quicker than a tripod. you don't miss any shots and can easily hold it up for shots above the crowd. I use a cable release attached to the 'pole' and have one hand on the zoom and one on the pole at the trigger. I call it my "camera on a stick."

        I was looking for a quality product for not a lot of money and feel that I got it. Holds my camera and zoom lens fine and seems like it will do great with add on flash or other accessories.

            Comments about Oben ACM-1400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod:

            I purchased this monopod as an alternative to carrying around my tripod. The monopod is sturdy and seems to be very durable.

            When I received it. The mounting screw was in the position for a ball head. If your not using a ball head, you turn the round mount on the top and it will unscrew and allow you to reverse the screw for the standard size on the bottom of a camera and also remove the strap/belt clip, if you want too.

            Overall this is a great monopod and I highly recommend it.

              I love the ease and flexibility to fit any camera body. Once I figured out that the screw that attaches to your camera base is easily flipped over to fit all camera bases I fell in love with this piece of equipment!

Very well constructed as well. Seems to be very durable and dependable and for the price, was the B&H Photo steal of 2015 so far. Thanks B&H!

              Comments about Oben ACM-1400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod:

              I was in the superstore and was looking for a good, reasonably priced monopod. I am so glad I found this one. I love the locks on the legs and just the all around feel of the monopod. It was priced perfectly to allow the young photographer the ability to own a good piece of equipment. It has been perfect for my day to day uses and is much easier to move around than a tripod. I highly recommend this product.

                  This monopod by Oben is amazingly structured and easy to use. It is light-weight and can fit practically anywhere. It is not too long when you collapse it down, it can go high if need be. So far it's worked out wonderfully and I have had it well over a year.

                      This monopod is very light and compact, but it can hold up to 17 lbs. Attaching a tilt head is very easy. The monopod feels firm and sturdy.

                      It eliminates vertical movements, but very small horizontal movements may occur. For looking at very distant objects with a spotting scope, holding the monopod against a fence helps to steady it. It is not a complete replacement for a tripod, but it is much easier to carry and to set up, so it is very useful.

                            This monopod is very lightweight and sturdy. My camera/audio recorder comes in around 4lbs and sits atop this with no issues.

                            It feels like it will last a good long time and appears to be high quality.

                                Great product for the price. I use it to capture video on location shoots, sometimes having to hike miles to a location.

                                It's very lightweight and surprisingly strong and durable, especially considering the low price!

                                Highly recommended.
