The Ultra 7000 Tri-Monopod from Sunpak is a super-convenient hybrid of a monopod that can be stored within the center column of a tripod--allowing you to bring both at once, everywhere you go. You get twice as much equipment and functionality without carrying any extra gear.

Designed for both photographers and videographers, the Ultra 7000 features a heavy duty 3-way fluid-effect pan head with a quick release plate, built-in bubble level, neoprene leg wraps, folding carry handle, leg braces for added stability and rubber tipped feet. It is built to get the job done regardless of the situation, and even comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Convenience
With having your monopod and tripod in the same place at all times is a great benefit, the addition of simple flip-locks, conversion from tripod to monopod in seconds, a quick release plate, and even a second one for free make this a very convenient addition to any arsenal
Solid Construction
From the strong and light aluminum build and built-in bubble level, to the leg braces and rubber feet this tripod is built to last, and protected by a limited lifetime warranty

      I needed something rugged, not too big or heavy, and with some features. And - I needed it in a hurry... I read the reviews here and made my purchase based solely on other reviews.I had a damage issue when I received it intially ; the handle was cracked. B&H promptly made a switch for me and I got an undamaged one in-time for a photo shoot in the desert. While this wasn't the lightest tri-pod it was fine for the price. I used an old carry case since this didn't come with one. I found it to be sturdy, however, I noticed that over tightening would easily strip the plastic threads so be careful!

      I ordered the Sunpak Ultra 7000 based on the very few, but good, reviews. When I opened the box and the plastic wrapping around the tripod a small piece of plastic fell out. That piece was part of the handle assembly which had broken off making the handle useless (picture attached).The box it came in was in perfect shape which leads me to believe it broke during manufacturing or packaging at some point.I'm giving it 3 stars since I never really got to test it out much before sending it back. I was afraid to put it through it's paces if it couldn't handle the padded ride over here.Aside from that it seemed pretty solid. The legs seemed strong enough and adjusted easily. The leg locks and most of the body was made of the same plastic that broke which made me wonder how long it would last.I would say this tripod is a good deal if you aren't going to be very rough with it or have it in extreme weather (the cold might cause the plastic to become more brittle). But honestly it would probably be safer to spend more for a better tripod.I ended up going with:Induro 8m AT214 legshttp://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/655223-REG/Induro_472_214_Alloy_8M_AT214_Tripod.htmland Vanguard SBH-250 headhttp://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/666436-REG/Vanguard_SBH_250_SBH_250_Ballhead.htmlThat was a huge jump in price from this product but I've read in many places that a tripod typically outlasts your camera and is worth investing in.For a slightly cheaper alternative you might look at the Induro AKB or AKP adventure kits.

      It's so cold in the D

      By oxymento

      from Detroit, Michigan

      Comments about Sunpak Ultra 7000 Tri-Monopod:

      Based on price and availability, I bought this entry-level tripod for my light DSLR. After a year of abuse, shooting on the streets of Detroit, the plastic head clamp finally failed. At -20°F, there plastic became brittle and cracked like ice. A full year of daily abuse...falling, dropping, throwing, and constant adjustment, and it took an uncommonly cold winter night to best this beast of a tripod. I'll be buying another. I've never had a tripod withstand so much at even close to this price.

      I have Fuji XE-1 so this tripod works perfect for me. I can see if you have a heavy DSLR; there might be some issue.

      It also works great on Video Camera, if you have a light consumer one.

      With the price, who can beat it?

          I was impressed as to how lightweight it is, but it supports my heavy digital cam with the wide angle lens. Love the levels (I got the 7001, but can't find here!). Excellent item, love the handle!

            Comments about Sunpak Ultra 7000 Tri-Monopod:

            The tripod stability (as reported by other reviews) and the combination of tripod and monopod functionality was the main reason for choosing this equipment. I am using it for a spotting scope and it does a good job, it is solid, stability is good and I can comfortably pan / tilt. A bit on the heavy side, but that was understood from the spec. Overall quite happy with the purchase.

                I am an amateur photographer and had another tripod before this. I like that this tripod feels very solid and seems well constructed. My favorite feature is the monopod option. I tend to take a lot of animal and insect pictures so I need something that will help reduce shake but also easy to move and the monopod allows me to do just that. Great product for the price.
