Manfrotto XPRO Overview

The MPMXPROA4US XPRO Monopod+ from Manfrotto is a versatile aluminum support designed for use with DSLR, mirrorless, compact, and video cameras.

A handy tool for nearly any visual artist, professional, or content creator, a monopod can often travel places tripods cannot, providing additional stability and supporting heavy equipment when required. The MPMXPROA4US features a 4-section design which, when paired with its aluminum construction, results in an easy-to-transport design weighing just 1.65 lb. With a maximum height of 70.9" and a minimum height of just 22", the MPMXPROA4US can be adjusted to suit users of varying heights and for various different tasks.

While the design of a monopod is relatively simple the Manfrotto Monopod+ line utilizes some innovative features which make using the MPMXPROA4US fast and easy. The primary feature of the line is the inclusion of Manfrotto's patented Power-Lock flip locks which snap open and closed to ensure fast operation and a tight, unyielding lock. The D-shaped leg sections have been designed not only to compliment the Power-Locks but also to prevent unwanted twisting between leg sections and increase the stability of the monopod.

Additionally, the Monopod+ line also features Manfrotto's standard rubber leg warmer for an improved grip and an adjustable hand strap for extra security. A 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting thread is placed at the top of the monopod in the center of the baseplate, allowing users to either, direct mount a camera or lens, or use an articulating head if required.

Manfrotto XPRO Reviews

Fantastic and quick to deploy

By Mark

I have this paired with a MVH500AH and I use it interchangeably for a Nikon DSLR and a Canon XF705. I primarily shoot wildlife and it deploys very quickly (I usually only use the top 2 latches) and it extends much taller than I am (5'9) so it can stand below my feet well on hills. It angles very well when on uneven surfaces. I would strongly recommend.

Nice stable monopod

This Manfrotto Monopod is small, but extremely durable. I use it to support a Nikon D4 with a Nikon 200-500/5.6 lens. It is very easy to use, and I can adjust the height quickly due to the Quick Power Lock (QPL) system. The D-shaped aluminum tubes greatly improve the anti-rotation resistance, and I think it is easier to grip.

Don't hesitate!

I'd been eyeing this monopod for a some time and then it was out of stock. As soon as it came back in stock I grabbed it! Works great with my heaviest lens (Tamron 150-600)

I shoot a lot of a run and gun video footage. This is monopod is great to help with stabilization, and very easy to carry around on the go! Truly, a must have as a pro videographer.

It feels cheap and fragile compared to my sirui sup204sr. Dont get me wrong, it doesnt feel like itll break easily but for the price i thought it would be a bit sturdier feeling. I also dont lkke how you cant adjust the tension on the foot so that you can control your tilts better. But at the end of the day i needed a taller monopod than the sirui so this will have to do.

If I could give this monopod a 12/10, I would. It is absolutely worth the money. I work as a videographer for weddings and I have picked up a couple of side gigs for behind the scenes with a Boston-based artist and also working with bands for sessions shoots. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself with this monopod. It's worth every penny.

Excellent - Sturdy, lightweight, quick adjustment.

I bought this for sports (track and field) for those shots when I needed a tripod. It is quick and easy to telescope and adjust to the height you need. It is stable yet light enough not to really notice the weight difference so I didn't feel I needed the carbon fiber version. Has worked very well so far.

The 234RC is recommended with this tripod, but is there something with a bigger load capacity? Sony A7III with Sony FE 100-400mm GM. It says weight of 5.5 pounds okay, and this combination is 4.5 pounds - makes me a tad nervous.
Asked by: Angie
The capacity on Manfrotto MPMXPROA4US Aluminum XPRO Monopod+ is 44LB. For Manfrotto 234RC Tilt Head for Monopods, the load capacity is 11LB. Both items will be very steady with your camera and lenses. You can use one of the safety pins included with the Manfrotto 200PL Quick Release to get a solid connection on your Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS Lens.

Can this be used with a gimbal to get overhead video?
Asked by: Alan
I don't know of any gimbal attachment but I do use it for overhead shots and it works great. Gimbals are way over rated and besides if you have the monopod in the air you need the camera angled at what you are shooting which is usually downward so you wouldn't want to use a gimbal. It has a good extension, you need to triple check that your camera is tightened down really well so it doesn't fall.

What is the counter weight for this head? I have a DSLR that weighs about 4.5 pounds and this head flips forward with the plate pulled all the way back.
Asked by: William
You must have significant forward weight in your lens. Perhaps Manfrotto has a solution for this. A weight, or a longer quick release plate. I'm carrying 5.3lbs not including my on camera light. The play provided in the quick release plate still allows me to compensate and balance.

Can I get this monopod with an arca swiss quick release head?
Asked by: David
This monopod accepts Video Style 500PLong Plates. However you could always add an Arca Style Clamp to the top of this monopod, such as B&H # SUMAC14. Once you have such a clamp you will be able to use Arca Plates.
