The four aluminum leg sections incorporate the new high-performing, ergonomic twist locks. These make set-up and adjustment much easier and more comfortable, while also offering maximum grip, quick leg opening, and extreme compactness. The Element MII also has an incredibly smooth panning action, thanks to the patented lightweight fluid cartridge in the folding base. Leveraging the judder-free base sphere, tilt position can be reached on the most uneven surfaces, allowing users to take advantage of pan fluidity in all sorts of conditions.

Aging long-tele bird photog here! I want to use this mostly as support to help get up/down from prone position. Could the wrist strap accept a big D-hook (carabiner clip) so I could hook the monopod to my belt?
Asked by: Geoff
Yes, the wrist strap could accept a carabiner clip so that the Element MII monopod can be hooked to your belt.

The camera mounting screw is much larger than on my dslr. What adapter do I need?
Asked by: Martin
The mounting thread on this monopod has a smaller mounting thread inside the larger one. You just have to push down on the edge of the larger one to expose the smaller one on the inside.

Can you attach a monopod foot to stabilize the monopod? If so, what thread?
Asked by: Keyan
You cannot attach a foot to the Manfrotto Element MII Aluminum Monopod (Black). You have to buy the Manfrotto Element MII Video Monopod. Here is the link: https://bhpho.to/3k011Io

Can a non-Manfrotto head be used with this monopod? Could a head with Arca-Swiss QR plates be used instead?
Asked by: Erik
Yes, the Manfrotto Element MII Video Monopod can work with most heads. The top is a 3/8 inch male thread which is standard and reversible 1/4 inch thread. So most heads have that connection.
