As a lifelong photographer I was dismayed when the onset of Parkinsons made it difficult to keep the camera steady. I control the tremors with medication and the rest is up to the Oben 2400 monopad It is very well made, easy to use,sturdy and light enough to take with me most of the time.I use it with an Olympus E-5 and a variety of substantial Olympus lenses plus an Oben quick release ball head (BA -00) My landscapes and nature close-ups are as clear as ever. Thank you Oben and thank you B&H for your years of service to me.

This thing is strong. Don't know about the plastic sections locks other that they work. Hand strap is to long. Belt clip makes strap 3 or 4 inches to long to get a good tight grip on rubber hand hold. There is no way to shorten it. The platform that holds the camera or lens or swivel head has set screws that can scratch and cut in to what ever is attached to this mounting plate a small rubber gasket would take care of this problem.

      Go to sporting events and take pictures of my grandson, the old monopod I had didn't take the weight of the camera and lens. It would collapse, the ACM-2400 4 is very sturdy and does the job very well,very pleased with it.

        I have had other mono pods before and they were ok, but this one is so well built and sturdy that I will not go back to any other brand of mono pod. The way it feels in your hand,it gives you confidence that it will be able to stand up to most anything that you thow at it.

        Comments about Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod:

        There was some promotion with my dslr. So I got this free. So I can't complain really. However I was surprised and pleased when I took the monopod out of the box. It's seems strong and would hold any heavy dslr or medium format just fine...

            Fantastic monopod. I read other reviews but never expected this monopod to be so well built. I definitely can recommend others to buy this monopod. Can't find any faults yet, havn't owned that long.

              Comments about Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod:

              I intend to use this monopod for waterfowl photography at a local wildlife management area. I've fitted it with a Manfrotto 234 tilt-head modified to accept a Jobu Design QRR-125 quick release plate. The end result is a very sturdy, affordable, and mobile set up. The Oben monopod snaps firmly into place, and it easily extends enough that at 6'1" I can shoot standing straight up.

                This Oben Monopod was a very welcomed nice surprise. I already have one and my wife wanted one for her camera so she is the proud owner. It is light weight but sturdy and easy to balance. It extends easily and supports the camera well. It is used with both camcorder and DSLR cameras. It is well constructed and appears as it will wear well. Only having it a month, time will tell.
