The EP-204S from Sirui is a multi-function video and photo monopod designed for the modern digital content creator.

Simply put, the EP-204S is a highly versatile monopod with a range of patented special features seamlessly integrated into the design for intuitive operation. The monopod's 4-section, aluminum construction keeps it at an easy-to-carry weight of just 2.4 lb, while its solid design allows it to support up to 17.6 lb. At its maximum height it can reach up to 63", while capable of folding down to just 24" in length for transport or storage.

Starting its diverse list of special features is the folding tripod foot which features a lockable ball-joint connection, which allows the monopod to pivot from a single, grounded position. The locking feature allows the user to lock the monopod vertically but does not make it free-standing. Although the monopod may stand on its own, the vertical lock is intended only to level the horizon for horizontal pans and should not be left unattended. The tripod foot may also be removed from the monopod and used as a table top tripod for those who may need a small support and wish to leave the monopod leg behind. Each one of the three legs folds vertically around the monopod's leg, reducing its footprint and permitting easy storage.

In addition to the unique foot, the EP-204S also features a patented 360° swiveling top grip that may be used for smooth pans when a fluid head is not required. The grip is covered by a padded leg warmer and may be engaged and disengaged by a simple aluminum twist-lock directly below the grip.

The monopod also features quick and easy to use flip locks for extending each leg section and a wrist strap for added security when in use. A 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 reversible stud is included along with the top plate for mounting both, tripod heads, and directly to camera.

    EP-204S Aluminum Multi-Function Photo/Video Monopod is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for Monopod but not at sturdy as Sirui P-204S I own the P-204S but was in need of another tripod/monopod, so I purchased this because I've always liked the latches instead of spin locks found on the 204S. After one use I realized that its not nearly as sturdy as the P-204S. If you are looking for a nice monopod that has feet to stabilize then this will work great for you, but if you are wanting to use this almost as a small, light weight tripod that can stand alone like I wanted to, this is not what you want. You will want to go with the P-204S.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid monopod for video. A very solid monopod, especially for video work. Compared to the older line-up (P-series), EP series have better feet that can now be adjusted at two positions. It can also be detached and be used as a table-top tripod. In addition, the new monopods have latching locks (similar to Manfrotto monopods). It's a matter of personla opinion, I personally like latches better than twisting locks.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little shaky when fully extended I purchased this version for a couple of reasons. One it is compact and light (which it is at 22 folded up) and I need that for travel purposes. Secondly the reviews said it was very sturdy with the legs at the bottom and could be left alone as a pseudo tripod. I took some time to play with it upon arrival and it definitely meets my #1 need, however it seems a little less sturdy, particularly when fully extended. I cannot seem to get it to fully tighten at the base and therefore it is not rock solid as I had hoped. I need to add my manfrotto 500 head to it yet so perhaps that will make a difference but out of the box I am a bit skeptical. I will keep it and make do but was hoping for more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better design than competition! I take off one star only because I ended up going with the Carbon Fiber version of this due to weight, and the feet on this one are somewhat shorter than the aluminum ones on my carbon version. Small trade-offs, but overall the design of these monopods are far superior to the Manfrotto type ones IMHO. Much more versatile. I love being able to lock off various parts of the assembly. I love the pan grip. If you're between this and a competitor...go with this! If you're between this one and the carbon fiber version...go carbon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No need ball head. I tried the Sirui carbon fiber P-326, it did not have the legs the NEW Ep-204S, I could not steady a shot, so I returned it. But this one is amazingEp-204S. It support well my 70-200mm. No need a ball head, there is one at the bottom. It's adjustable so it does not pivot on itself as a monopod without legs. Making my shoots very steady. I take picture of kids, no problems, undo the 3 clips and I can go very low. They run around, not problem I can tilt in almost any direction. The legs are stronger that I tough, a nice click tell you they are set. I returned the bullhead I bought with it. A ball head on top might seem a plus, but it actually put stress on the lens mount. I can control my left and right rotation from the foamy grip once the the bottom ball is adjusted properly. I can't hold my 70-200mm for very long hand held, so this is amazing. Instead of being disrupted by pains in my hands, I can focus on creativity, what I will take picture next. My setup on my Nikon 70-200mm is the clip that come with the lens, it then can be screw on the Sirui. It act like a quick release plate. I can release the lens and put it in my carrying bag without having to unscrew anything. This a a upgraded model on the older one that had screws type, they changed it to clips. So far I did not have to screw back the lock. That monopod steady my shot. My pictures quality is very much improved, it's alot more sharper, because nothing move if I screw the bottom at the right tightness. I am looking to take more and more pictures because I don't have pains anymore carrying it, holding it. Try it, it's amazing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its good but not perfect The base has the ability to rotate which is a good thing, something you'd want on a Monopod.� But, its very hard to level this thing because of it.� Now this was not mean to be a tripod, but if your hoping to be able to rely on it for level shots on the run, well, you might be disappointed. Another little thing I was was different was the feet.� They don't lock in place.� I have not had a problem with it, but I would have liked locking feet.� Something found on a another model perhaps. Other then that, I'm quite pleased with this!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from NotEntirely a Flip-LockVersionofP-204S I was about to purchase the P-204S model but since I'm a fan of flip-style locks over the twist type, I ordered this new version instead. There are alsoother differences between these two models: the EP-204S is1/2 poundlighter and packs 3 shorter. Also, the mini tripod option now has a permanent 3/8 mounting screwvs. using an additional mounting screw/mounting plate setthat isincluded with P-204S.There's only one set in the box for EP-204S.This affected one of my intended uses, butI still really like this monopod. Also, the mini tripod for EP-204S has two height settings which is nice. I have yet to really test it but it has a quality feel and is plenty tall enough for eye level shooting (I'm 5'7), even with the feet detached.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome little piece of kit. It's like it was made for the mirrorless cameras and gives you a very quick way to get stable shots both with video and stills. Very well made. Cheap. Lightweight. That's 3 out of 3. Could kind of work as a long exposure tripod and is great for the new 2 frames a second fake timelapse in the a6500. Bought it with a varavon cheap fluid tripod head and it's a fantastic combo. As you can tell I'm happy with the purchase.
