Reap the benefits of a monopod with the stability of a tripod using the Benro A38FD Series 3 Aluminum Monopod with 3-Leg Locking Base. Able to hold up to 39.7 lb and extend to 61", the A38FD Series 3 is a versatile camera support thanks to its base which provides three solid points of contact with the ground. The base acts like a mini tripod, and its ball joint allows you to smoothly pan and tilt your camera. If using a pan head on the monopod, the base's ball joint can be locked so that you can pan with the head independently, or you can replace the base with the included rubber foot. The four leg sections are secured by flip locks, and it folds down to 21.3" for transport.

Benro A38FD Reviews
sturdy for such a cheap monopod
Great for 360 spherical cameras
I use this my Ricoh 360 camera and it has been great. Several height adjustments and sturdy legs so you don't have to worry about it falling over.
Very nice solid monopod.
What's to say? Does everything a monopod should, plus the 3-legged stand. On the plus side, stiff and straight, positive and easy to use flip locks. Included allen and hex wrenches for setup. On the downside, a bit heavier than I expected but not bad. And skimpy instruction on how to use the included wrenches. Overall, very nice for the price.
Couple issues with monopod
It' sturdy but not put together well. The first problem, when you attempt to unscrew the monopod from the lens mount the bolt from the monopod doesn't unscrew, now the bolt is logged in the mount and won't release with simple hand pressure. You need pliers to remove the bolt. The rubber removable shoe on the bottom of the monopod, (it's removable to allow the tripod attachment to be attached) is easily lost. You need to keep tighten the screwed in attachment until one day you realize it's gone.
Great for indoors
This monopod shakes with the wind and I need to hold it firm which sometimes makes it worse. Interiors this works great. The legs lock tight.
Exactly What I Needed!
I bought this to use primarily with a fluid head for video, though I can see leaving the tripod at home now and using this for photography as well. Nicely constructed. Super compact design when fully collapsed. Lightweight and includes nice carrying bag. Very happy with this purchase.
Bought it for my wife...
... and she loves it. I was a bit leery of getting the shorter version, but it extends well above her eyes when fully extended. She's 5'7 and it would even work for me at 5'10. Light, functional, and sturdy. Great purchase!
Very easy to open to proper height and love the base for stabilization...
