The Optrix XD4 Monopod is suitable for capturing videos with your XD4 lens without the need for a second person. Simply mount the Monopod facing towards you for a shooting angle. The Monopod extends to just over 3' and collapses down to 14" allowing you to take it with you wherever you go. It's locking, aircraft grade aluminum telescoping arm is rugged enough to withstand any adventure. The Optrix XD case mounts directly on to the Monopod, thanks to the included 1/4" Tripod Adapter.
