The versatile 2.8 lb Cobra 2 C180-II Carbon Fiber 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 22.1 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.

iFootage C180 II Reviews

Good but with some caveats

By Bruce

It works well as a monopod with more stability than the usual monopod. It is much heavier and bulkier than a regular monopod and much more difficult to carry in the field with a large telephoto lens. There is also the problem with the design that has a large aluminum pivot ball at the base of the monopod where it is exposed to water and dirt and sand. It comes with a carry case that is needed with its large foot. But the carry case is too short to allow it to hold the monopod if a head is attached. I use a Sirui L-10 monopod head which is excellent but it adds 3.1 inches to the length of the iFootage monopod and so needs to be removed to fit the monopod into the carry case that is provided. This is a dumb oversight on the part of the British designers as many cases and bags have a zipper that allows the case to be extended if desired. I use it around my house for day excursions but I take my Manfrotto with the Sirui head on my trips where the Manfrotto takes much less space and can be placed inside the same bag as my tripod.

Best decision

I've always thought about getting a monopod m, but never found a reason why I should get one until I booked my first wedding. I bought this and a benro monopod for this wedding... well I returned the benro and kept the ifootafe. The one feature that I love is the quick release. I love how I'm able to take it off and connect it to the tripod to low angle shots. It's light weight and super easy to use. I'm going to go back and get another one for my b cam for sure.

Single best upgrade to my device

By James

Most of my work is in the field. Interviews, recording speeches at events and so on. Often I have to hold my camera rig as still as I can for so long, I have a tremour afterwards. Often also, I don't take opportunities for video and interviews because it doest seem worth the effort to set up a tripod, or hold the heavy camera rig. Having taken the Monopod out, it set up fast, is light, is short, the legs offer more stability so at the end of the day you have footage nearly as stable as a tripod but with enough movement that it has a more organic feel. I am really, really happy with this device. Both because it makes my footage better as my camera doesn't really have an IBIS, but also because it allows me to get more material that otherwise I would not have bothered with. It actually lives up to Gerald Undone's video review of it on Youtube.

Nice

This is a very nice monopod it goes up to over 6ft and seems to be a really strong monopod. I like the feet on the bottom of the monopod as that is nice. Although I wouldn't leave a large camera on it without holding it - it is really nice. Good by, will work great for what I want it for

Excellent product

I have two Manfrotto monopods that I really like and use often. I needed a mono pod with legs to help me shoot a large graduation ceremony. The iFootage monopod is better suited for that need. It is really well made and will be more stable for that purpose. Great value for the money.

as soon as you get it out of the case you can tell this product is high quality. It has different uses such as boom and high hat which are very convinient, recommended.

Is this low profile enough so I can use a ricoh theta V 360 degree camera and not get the monopod in the picture?

This monopod is pretty much one of the lowest profiles out there but you may get a bit of it in the shot given certain positioning. You can certainly remove any unwanted sections in post.

Is this monopod with tripod feet attached stable enough to shoot long exposures with a DSLR?
Asked by: Lee
I would say, no. Simply pushing the shutter button and letting go of the camera will cause it to sway just a bit. Maybe it would work with a remote shutter release, but I'm not too confident of that either.
