Oben CTM-2600 Reviews

Easy to use

By Lisa
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-16

I bought this for high school sports events because my new lens is a little heavy to hold for long periods of time. I haven't used it too many times yet, but the tilt head and height adjusters are easy to operate. Be careful not to untwist the adjusters too much though or the parts will separate and are a little tricky to put back together. Also, when it separated, there were 2 very thin pieces of plastic that fell out, one of which broke. I like it so far but I think it will take a little time for me to get used to with the faster action sports.

What a neat and compatible device to travel with...I really look forward to using this monopod on my next trip. This tool even has a pocket clip and will pack into a carry-on bag. The ball head is quite accurate and potable.

have been using this a lot and fight it helps both as a a camera support and walking stick,. I do a lot of combination hiking and photography and wish I had bought a monopod years ago. the sections lock well and stay tight. The handle is comfortable. I added a head so I could attach and detach the camera quickly and for shooting in vertical format.

It's lightweight, yet very sturdy. Perfect when using long lenses and you don't have room for a tripod.

Not priced like a Gitzo, but it is every bit as solid and well made. It is light weight and compact. And it dies the job.

The monopod is exactly what I wanted. It arrived in a very short time after ordering it and seems very well built.

Very solid setup. Especially for any mirrorless body and a long lens for sports.

Could a gimbal head be used with this monopod? I was hoping to find something for travel to use with my Canon 100-400mm lens and a Gimbal head. Thank you.
Asked by: Sonja
Yes a gimbal head would be compatible with the Oben CTM-2600 monopod. It has a standard 3/8-16 mount and most gimbals mount to a tripod or monopod using a 3/8-16.
