Product Highlights

  • Load Capacity of 44 lbs (20 kg)
  • Maximum Height of 5.28' (1.61 m)
  • 4 Sections Close to 1.73' (53 cm)

When you're shooting with a telephoto or in low light and moving too fast to set up a tripod (or you just want to travel light), the Benro A48F Classic Aluminum Monopod may be your new best friend.

This machined aluminum support reaches a height of 5.28' (1.61 m), closes down to 1.73' (53 cm), and supports 44 lbs (20 kg). It only weighs 1.65 lbs (0.75 kg), so you'll barely know you're carrying it. Opening and closing the 4 sections is quick and easy with the flip lever lock design, and high elasticity rubber feet prevent slipping (meaning less fatigue for you in the long run).

An attached wrist strap and a closed foam grip give you a secure hold on the monopod (and your camera!), and the grip insulates your hands from the aluminum on cold days. The head plate has a reversible 1/4-3/8" screw.

        Comments about Benro A48F Classic Aluminum Monopod:

        Strong and feels like it will take a beating. It's better than MANY of the other brands I've used in the past. For the price, it was worth it. Just wish B&H sold the 3-legged feet that fit this unit. It's slightly on the heavy side, but not bad at all. Solid build, even better than a Benro travel tripod that I've owned for 4+ years. Add a head (monopod tilt head) and you're good to go. Wish it came with some sort of bag/case for storage purposes.

              Comments about Benro A48F Classic Aluminum Monopod:

              The A48F is a high quality and very sturdy monopod. Actually, it was a little overkill for me, since it is maybe a little bulky. The top shaft is 1 & 3/8" diameter (without the foam covering) and you feel like you have equipment you might see on the sidelines of an NFL game with some big video rig on it. I almost returned it because I needed something a little lighter and thinner, but that would have cost and the next model down A38F might have been just as bulky only shorter?

                  Very elegant design. Very lightweight but sturdy. Would be nice if it had a swivel head, but I love it.
