The versatile 3.1 lb Cobra 2 A180-II Aluminum Monopod with Low-Profile Tripod from iFootage stabilizes your camera to produce still images, or it swivels smoothly to capture video. By disengaging its flip leg locks, you can extend the 4-section monopod, which has a load capacity of 17.6 lb, from a folded length of 27.8" to a maximum height of 70.9". At the bottom, the base folds out to three feet with a swiveling base that has tension control with a lock, and it allows you to follow a subject easily while capturing video. With the feet folded up, a rubber foot is exposed, so the monopod can be used in a conventional way without the swiveling base. The base is also removable, and it converts into a mini tripod that can be used for macro or tabletop photography.
