Reap the benefits of a monopod with the stability of a tripod using the Benro A48FD Series 4 Aluminum Monopod with 3-Leg Locking Base. Able to hold up to 44.1 lb and extend to 64.6", the A48FD Series 4 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 22" for transport.

How do you "flip the screw around?" This is unclear. I have tried but nothing is working.
Asked by: Brendan
The screw has a hex nut at the base. Loosen the hex nut and remove it. You will see that it is threaded on both ends. One end is 1/4-20, the other is 3/8. Flip it over and screw it back in.

Is this sturdy enough for a 30 sec long exposure. I’m looking at the Benro monopod $89.
Asked by: Mickey
The three-legged base on the bottom of the Benro A48FD Series 4 Aluminum Monopod with 3-Leg Locking Base, B&H # BEA48FD, is not designed to support the camera without assistance as is a tripod. It is designed for assistance in allowing you smooth panning and tilting motion while holding and manually moving the monopod. Due to its low support point, I would not leave the camera unattended mounted on the monopod, and as the base is low to the ground with the camera being high on the monopod, the image can still be affected by wind or platform movement. If you are shooting mildly long exposures, such as from 1/30 sec down to maybe 2-4 seconds (depending on how steady you are and if your camera/lens combination has image stabilization), the monopod may work for your usage needs, but for long exposures such as the 30 second exposure you list above, I would recommend a standard tripod for your usage needs.
