Oben ACM-2400L overview

  • 1Description

The Oben ACM-2400L 4-Section Aluminum Self-Standing Monopod with Mini-Legs is an extremely sturdy camera support of the one-legged variety, but with a twist: Unscrew the bottom, and from the lower section of the monopod emerge three 9" aluminum legs that flip out to form a miniature tripod at the base. With this function, you can take your monopod to areas where tripods are prohibited, such as certain tourist attractions, and capture steady shots without the usual need to hold onto your monopod for dear life.

The three leg stages of the ACM-2400L descend to achieve a maximum height of 66.8", which facilitates comfortable operation for almost all users. Not only tall, this is quite a robust piece of gear: It bears up to 26.4 lb, so add just about any head, camera & lens combination that you want. The monopod's rubber-footed mini-legs, foam grip, and wrist strap will conspire to keep your setup stable.

The flip locks of the ACM-2400L are adjustable, which means you can use the included Allen key to tighten them if they expand and loosen slightly due to normal wear & tear. You can also adjust the action of the locks to suit your operating preference. Leg stages descend easily and lock into place securely, so setup is a breeze. The ACM-2400L is composed of anodized aluminum to ensure its solidity.

For fine control over camera orientation, attach a head to the monopod's reversible 3/8"-16 & 1/4"-20 mounting screw. Three set screws underneath the collar enable you to fasten the head securely to the plate. The Allen key is attached to the top leg section, so you're always ready to make adjustments.

This leggy monopod is extremely compact for its (small) product class, collapsing to 23.2" to make it easily transportable. The self-standing ACM-2400L will handle with aplomb many one-of-a-kind shooting situations.

Reversible 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 screw for mounting any camera or head
Foam grip mitigates the effects of extreme temperatures and protects your camera by ensuring that your grip doesn't slip
For a second line of security and more stable shooting, wrap the attached strap snugly around your wrist
Wrist strap features belt clip for convenient hands-free carrying
Mini-tripod unit unscrews, folds out, and screws back into place quickly & easily without the need for tools

    Oben ACM-2400L reviews

    ACM-2400L 4-Section Aluminum Self-Standing Monopod with Mini-Legs is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 73.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my favourite Monopod- As a sports photographer, monopods are essential and I have gone through several brands and models either misplacing them or breaking them. I though I'd like this mini-legs version for when I'm editing on the side of a football field while shooting so I wouldn't have to balance my lens on the signage board or in between my legs. However, the weight, and the locking mechanisms cancel out any of the benefits. A ball head is absolutely required, and the head that I got adds a few pounds onto the set up, making me less mobile. An Allen Key (hex wrench) is included and I feel I need to carry it with me every time as the screws need tightening or loosening all the time, which is a complete hassle. I do not recommend this for those who require a light monopod- it's much heavier and cumbersome than I thought (ordered online) And don't expect the legs to be stable. this does not replace a tripod for stabilisation.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Poor Build Quality The ObenACM-2400L seemed like a perfect fit for me with its self-standing mini-legs, but I've now been through 2 of these monopods and they both ended up in the same condition: a pile of pieces. The first monopod lasted just under two months before the entire unit literally fell apart in my hands. B&H customer support was excellent and they shipped a second unit immediately. The replacement unit also collapsed in pieces after very little use. For the second unit I contacted Oben directly. Their response was pretty much, Oh well. There was no offer to repair or replace the unit, just a half-hearted apology for a negative experience. Based on the build quality of not one but two of these products and Oben's lack of concern for their customers, I cannot recommend this product or any product from Oben.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very versatile tool I love many thing's about this Monopod.I checked out a competing name brand's model and all the user reviews before choosing this model.I have owned a normal monopod from that company and so far this Oben seems as well made and sturdy for less money. Buyer's should be aware that they will have to wrap the legs in three places with electric tape or something not to thick so they won't rattle but will still slide into the bottom section of the monopod. My only complaint is I believe Oben should have thought about a strong rubberized coating on the legs.Had they done that I would have gave five stars.Also buyers should be aware they will need a head that has a seperate panning control as when the legs are out you cannot just turn it.All in all a great photographic tool especially for those who are getting older.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Build, a little heavy and rickety Maybe you just turned to this monopod with tripod capability for the same reasons as mine- tripods are cumbersome. You need to extend three legs undoing the many locks and that doesn't allow you to quickly be ready for shooting. I was at Grand Canyon with my tripod, trying to shoot the dawn, changing places, hurrying not to miss the light that'll never be the same in the next second. While tripods are made to provide great stability if you want to stay put and keep shooting, they are not exactly what you want to have when you want to move around more. This one is perfect for you if you are such active photographer. It sure provides you with lot of mobility, giving you a good stability simultaneously. It's finish is very cool too. The downsides, as I see it, are the weight and mini legs. It's sturdy but pretty heavy, that's what I first thought when I held it right out of the box. Also, I think this can't totally replace your tripod. It does have mini legs and that does enable the monopod stand by itself, allowing it to function as a tripod. It becomes kind of rickety when it stands with the mini legs. I wonder what'll happen when the wind is blowing; you wouldn't probably want to leave your dear camera on this thing in such case. So if you are out there, hoping this will totally replace your tripod, it's not going to work like that. After all, it's a monopod with mini legs, which you need to keep in mind.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could be better engineered. I use this for taking video in places where a tripod is not allowed or in spaces where a tripod is not practical to use.The monopod portion is great in that you have a choice of being able to use a ball head or a video head without worrying about the head loosening because it has set screws that prevent the head from unscrewing while panning.The mini-legs are by concept a great solution. On this product, while useable, is so-so in engineering design and concept implementation. The tolerances are way too loose (probably to lower manufacturing cost) so ends up not being sturdy, stable and robust when deployed. The monopod almost always need to be held by hand to prevent unwanted camera movement.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Noisy But Fixable I picked this over the Manfrotto model because it collapses shorter and seems more versatile, which is all true. It works well with my Manfrotto heads and sets up quickly, which is fantastic. The legs are pretty rattly when contained, though, as other users have noted, but here's how I fixed that: Place a single wrap of rubber or thick electrical tape around each leg at staggered increments, so the tape doesn't touch itself when the legs close up. Then find a small rubber end tip (or use another piece of rubber tape) to place on the short center pin at the base of the three legs -- keep your thumb on it as the legs open up. Too much tape and the legs won't fit back into the monopod, but get it just right and this becomes a totally quiet, solid-sounding unit.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from it brokes in the first use. I'll recomend the Manfrotto monopod.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unstable I bought this monopod because of the mini-legs, expecting that it would serve as a lightweight alternative to a tripod in quick photo and video assignments. But it doesn't. When the monopod leg is extended it becomes very unstable. Even when you take your hands off the camera it continues to shake for a couple of seconds. So it is unstable with the legs and heavy (because of the legs) when you just want to use it as a regular monopod.
