The MPMXPROA5US 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 MPMXPROA5US features a 5-section design which, when paired with its aluminum construction, results in an easy-to-transport design weighing just 1.5 lb. With a maximum height of 55.5" and a minimum height of just 16.1", the MPMXPROA5US 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 MPMXPROA5US 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.
