question

Hi, what is the included L-shaped hex key wrench used for?
Asked by: Howard W.
I have never used it but I believe it is used to adjust and tighten the quick release locking system of the risers

question

Hi, how to you change between the 1/4 & 5/8 camera fixing screw? Thank you
Asked by: Howard W.
The disappearing adjustable mount referred to in the previous post is the answer. Basically it's got a 1/4 with a spring loaded 5/8 that slides up around it. If your camera / ball / whatever requires a 5/8, it's what you're going to see. If it requires a 1/4, you press down slightly on the device requiring the 1/4 and the 1/4 pops out of the center of the 5/8. Basically it's a 1/4 mount with a spring loaded captive 5/8 sleeve over it. The 5/8 just retracts inside when it's not needed so you don't have anything to lose. Slick setup. I love the legs for what I do which is taking pictures of the grandkids events . I can use the 3 legs on a bleacher foot board (they just barely fit, so that will give you an idea of the circumference and I don't have to hold onto the camera for say an entire football game. It's between my knees and slightly below my field of view so I can watch the game if the grandson isn't playing, and if he is I can just put my head down slightly. Using a Pentax K-50 with a 300mm lens and a big old Sunpack flash they will hold the camera steady enough that I don't have to, even on bleachers. My knees are there just in case , but in 3 seasons it's never tipped and forced me to make a grab for it.

question

do I need to purchase a reducer to secure a ball head to this unit?
Asked by: Harvey
What is reducer on a monopod ? never heard of it. I never secure ball head on this monopod but it will be mounted like any other plates and can be secure to it.

question

Do the retractable legs add any additional height to the monopod? The max height listed is 67.7 . Does any of that come from the legs when used? I'm assuming not, but thought I'd try and find out.
Asked by: Richard T.
They add about 1.7 to the height. The 67.7 height is with the legs extended. Without them the monopod is about 66. They're pretty flat & low to the ground & very stable. It's not as stable as a tripod, obviously, but it works really well. I've never felt nervous about letting go of it with my camera attached & if you're in a wind-free area, without any ground shake, it can be perfectly still.

question

If the stabilizing legs on a manfretto monopod are not in use is there an adequate bottom support?
Asked by: Anthony J. V.
Yes, there is decent, non-skid support when the tripod legs are stowed. There is a half-inch rubber button on the storage cap. While a standard monopod has a larger rubber cap, the little button is softer and does the required job pretty well.

question

How are the stabilizing legs on the manfretto monopod retractable? Do they fold into the monopod are they screwed in
Asked by: Anthony J. V.
They fold into the body. How I shoot I have to change from legs to monopod pretty quickly and this does the trick. It is easy to get the legs out and put them back.
