The Vanguard ABEO AP-284 Aluminum Monopod provides a good compromise between the stability of a tripod and the speed of handheld shooting. Lightweight aluminum construction allows the AP-284 to weigh in at only 1.68 lb while it rises to a maximum height of 63.75" The AP-284 is all about speed of operation. It quickly retracts from its maximum height to only 23.25" in seconds thanks to its quick flip leg locks. An adjustable wrist strap secures the monopod while you grasp the comfortable foam grip. An included carabiner allows you to secure the AP-284 to your belt or backpack for walking or climbing. The AP-84's head tilts +/- 90 degrees so you can maintain a stable base on the ground instead of tilting the entire monopod. The 1/4"-20 mounting screw is convertible to 1/8".

      Comments about Vanguard ABEO AP-284 Aluminum Monopod with Tilting Head:

      I initially needed a monopod to help stabilize non-vibration control camera/lens combo's for shooting indoor HS sporting events. This product is sturdy, relatively light and I found it easy to attach the camera. Height adjustments are quick and stay secure. The provided rotating / tilting head is a plus for verticle shots. Though I have nothing to compare it with, when mounting a larger heavier lens like my Tamron 70-300 and shooting with the head tilted 90 degrees for verticle shots, the weight of the lens will cause the camera/lens to tilt down. Tightning the screw more only helps a little. But that is not a "show stopper". Aluminum construction is another plus. Got caught in the rain going to a shoot and had no problems. Overall I am pleased with this product and looking forward to using it when spring sports begin.
