Key Features
  • Compatible with the Cobra Monopods
  • 3-Variable Angles of 20, 50, and 78°
  • Swiveling Base with Main Locking Knob

The Low-Profile Cobra Base from iFootage is compatible with Cobra monopods, but the base on its own is ideal for tabletop photography and portability because of its small size. This tripod also has a 3/8"-16 spring loaded thread that pushes back to reveal a 1/4"-20 threaded mount. It is suitable to mount a DSLR camera or accessory, and the top platform has quick release functionality for instant removal of the camera. Also, the movement of the swiveling base is controlled by the main locking knob, and the base can tilt at a 90° angle via the cut notch on its side. In addition, the reverse folding legs have 3-variable leg angles of 20°, 50°, and 78° to adjust for uneven terrain, and a rubber foot can also be utilized by folding the feet up.

iFootage BASE Reviews

This is my second Cobra base.

I have two if these, the monopod, and a couple different heads. The iFootage gear is very good and I use it a lot. I still prefer my cheap Manfrotto monopod though for sideline shooting. I use the iFootage gear mostly for video.

Sturdy

First of all, if you are a film or video person, why not support the greatest and most inventoried place to go for quality video products and Customer Service? Hint hint, it's not the other retail giant! Secondly, I am continually amazed by this product. Even as a third point of contact, it helps keep small cameras more stable when pressed against your body. As a desktop tripod, it is super portable and collapsible. Every film and video person needs one of these in their kit!

strong, light and easy to use

Is it possible to purchase just the quick release mechanism with the plate? Or one that similar?
Asked by: Michael
iFootage doesn't sell the head/plate as a combo. They only sell additional quick release PLATES that go for almost half the price of the entire tripod itself. The quick release mechanism is a component of the tripod itself and does not come off/is not removable.

Is this compatible with the Really Right Stuff BH-40 Ball Head?

Can’t say for sure as I’m not familiar with that ball head, but it is highly likely it will be compatible as the iFootage will accommodate both 3/8-16 and 1/4-20 heads.

Is this compatible with a Gitzo GM5541 Monopod?

Is this compatible with a Gitzo GM5541 Monopod?
Asked by: Kevin
I have the Gitzo 5561T monopod and couldn't connect it to this base. The thread differs substantially - the Gitzo foot thread is 15mm, the Cobra Base plate thread is 6.5mm. Added to that there is a gap on the female Gitzo connector that has no thread so the 6.5mm can't bind to it at all. This is a shame as it takes out a useful option. I assume the 5541 has a different connector setup or I am missing something really obvious.
