The MeFOTO WalkAbout is a 5-section aluminum alloy monopod and walking stick combination that rises to a maximum height of 59.1", folds down to 18.1" and weighs only 1.4 lb. The WalkAbout is topped with a comfortable purple knob with an inlaid compass for easy reference when hiking. Height is adjustable with twist locks with purple accent rings that echo the knob. The removable knob reveals a 1/4"-20 screw that can handle a camera directly or accept an optional tripod head. The top leg section features a rubberized grip and wrist strap while the 30.9 lb weight capacity ensures steady support whether used as a monopod or walking stick.
