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

      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.

      Feels a little cheap once you get a body and telephoto lens on. COuld be good for traveling because its very skinny and light weight. But if you want a sturdy monopod I'd upgrade...Read complete review

      Feels a little cheap once you get a body and telephoto lens on. COuld be good for traveling because its very skinny and light weight. But if you want a sturdy monopod I'd upgrade to something a little beffier.

        The Oben 4-section Monopod was recommended as a good one to buy for a gift. It is substancial enough to hold up, and light enough to be carried and used for stability of shots.

          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.

            I needed a lightweight monopod to use on a D3200 for some horse training videos. I was pleasantly surprised how well it is constructed. I have used monopods on heavy broadcast cameras in the past and this one is a great buy for DSLR use.

              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.

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

                        Highly recommended.

                          I bought the Oben ACM-1400 for to hold my flash and it works great, and so far has done a really good job with my camera and 70-200 attached. It's sturdy and lightweight. Set-up is a breeze. Very cost-effective. I would definitely recommend buying this for anyone who needs a monopod for flash use, or for just to have a cheap yet very good quality stand for general purposes.

                          i absolutely love this monopod. i went back and forth between this one and a Sirui model, and ended up with this one because it was cheaper. it's the perfect height for me and with 4 sections (instead of 6 like the Sirui), it was easy to extend quickly. i use it for video with my Canon 5D mk II and i think it's probably the best purchase I've made (video equipment-wise). :)

                            This mono-pod is great for throwing onto a backpack, have had really great results on my weekend treks using this to shoot all kinds of different things. Really light to carry and the expandable length is a huge bonus. Would recommend for anyone looking to take their camera gear hiking or anywhere else where stable surfaces are not readily available.

                                    Comfortable grip, sturdy but not so heavy as to become a weapon! lol

                                    super light weight, strong/sturdy, compact but extends enough so I am not stooped over (I'm 6'2")

                                      For quick shots, this is a very high functioning addition to my equipment. Not as light as carbon fiber, but very light.

                                        This works well with my 70-200 mm lens. Especially when out taking landscape photos if you don't want to carry a tripod. You will need to get an attachment however in order to put your camera or lens on it. Your camera will not fix unless you have the attachment.
