Oben ACM-2400 Overview

  • 1Description

The Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod is a lightweight yet extremely sturdy one-legged support for a camera, whether point & shoot, DSLR, or video camera. Maximum height is 63.2", which facilitates comfortable operation for most users.

At only 1.65 lb, this is quite a robust piece of gear: It bears up to 26.5 lb, so add just about any head, camera & lens combination that you want. The monopod's chunky rubber foot, foam grip, and wrist strap will conspire to keep your setup stable.

The flip locks of the ACM-2400 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-2400 is composed of anodized aluminum to ensure its durability.

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. An Allen key is included & attached to the top leg section, so you're always ready to make adjustments.

The monopod collapses to just 21.3", so you can stow it in many carry-on bags. No matter how near or far you roam, the ACM-2400 is a great travel companion: relatively lightweight and compact, very simple to operate – but steadfast and ready in an instant to help you capture the perfect shot.

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
Robust rubber foot

    Oben ACM-2400 Reviews

    ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 537.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap.... They claim the monopod has a chunky rubber foot. Ha! It lasted for about two weeks before the lower leg section basically cut a hole in it....causing plenty of dirt and clay to get jammed up in the leg. The lower section then was unable to retract, so I was forced to remove it to clear out the filth and muck. Must have lost something in the process as now the lower leg will just slide right out. No stop. The foam grip might work well as a grip, but don't expect it to offer any real cushion when carrying the camera on your shoulder. It is rather thin and wimpy. I had been using the classic Bogen 3018 for 25 years and its chunky rubber foot is still intact. I think I'll be going back to it...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plate snapped right of the leg! I had this monopod for about 6 months already, and it was great. Very sturdy and did the job well. I load it with about 5lb, which is well under the 26.4lb load capacity. A couple of days ago while using it to shoot a wedding, the plate just snapped right off of its leg. The part of the plate which connects to the leg just snapped! I was very lucky that my equipment didn't come flying down. On top of that, Oben would not accept responsibility to replace the piece but made me buy a new plate from them. I wouldn't trust them to support the thousands of dollars that goes on top of monopods, best to stick with Manfrotto or other reputable companies.

    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 4 out of 5 by from Get Your Hands Off I didn't expect the Oben Monopod to be as useful as it was to me. It was included as a free item bundled with the Canon 5D mkiii I purchased and I was just excited to try it out. It wasn't until I was shooting a live band at a venue that I realized how useful it was. Simply getting my hands off the body of the camera relieved so much. I was able to easily move around and use angles that were comfortable and intuitive to shoot from. The extendibility proved itself as I was able to tower over and include the audience watching the band from the back of the venue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy frame and comfortable grip I used this monopod for the first time on one of my wedding shoots. Forget the tripod when you have to move in a hurry to capture another critical angle that requires a solid, steady and lengthy shot. I moved quicky to where I needed to be, and set up in a nano-minute with this unit compared to the tripod. I even rested it on a chair or table with super results. The grip is meat and potatoes with a sure, solid secure feeling that you wont lose your camera easily while moving. The snap locks are extremely secure and reassuring. You cant go wrong. I love it and it greatly compliments and handles the weight (fully loaded) of my Sony EX-3.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Quality Build I was surprised after ordering this at how sturdy it holds my Canon 5d Mark iii. The diameter is much larger than anticipated leading to no flex when fully extended and the grip feels natural in your hand. The 4 section extension work great and when fully extended place the camera well above my eye height(I'm 6' tall). Would recommend this for anyone needing stability, especially in an environment where tripods aren't an option. Also while on a shoot I had some unfortunate interaction with a bees nest, this monopod makes an excellent bat to swat a swam of insect as well!

    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 5 out of 5 by from Solid. First of all, I actually was surprised to recieve this Monopod as a freebie in my 5D order. I was expecting something a little lower end so kuddos to B&H (no surprise here!) for dropping something that can be used at a pro level. Locked the monopod under my rig for a outdoor shoot recently, and not only that gave me added stability on a 15-18lbs rig, but it held its own very well. This monopod is sturdy, heavy, solid, exactly what I'm looking for when shooting on the road. I'm never too concerned about weight, I tend to feel better about heavy gear, although I'm obviously not hiking for 3 days with it on my back. Height is great, and the wide diameter is appreciated: you look at it and you know it won't break the next day.

    question

    In the userguide of this product, I saw that it mentions about mouting HeadBall with this product. So does it come together with HeadBall or we must to buy separate one
    Asked by: Anonymous
    This monopod does not come with a ball head, and you will need to purchase one separately. I recommend the Oben VH-R2 Tilt Head for Monopods: http://bhpho.to/Iwakv7

    question

    which type of folding legs fit for this monopod....manfrott has a 3 leg set but that did not fit in..did any body tried any other products ???
    Asked by: sudhakar
    Not sure whay you'd try to add folding legs to a monopod. It's meant to be a single leg support...hence MONO pod. So, to answer your question; No, there are no folding legs that fit this item.

    question

    Three set screws underneath the collar enable you to fasten the head securely to the plate.What exactly does this refer to? How does this relate to Oben heads for example which do not show an ability to be screwed to the plate other than with the main reversible mounting screw?
    Asked by: Ron K.
    All of the ball heads will screw onto the tripod center column plate and are snugged down by hand. On some tripods, under the center column plate are three set screws that when run in from underneath will contact the underside of the ball head. This helps keep the ball head from unscrewing when panning back and forth over time. Hope this helps, Kirk

    Does this fit Nikon cameras?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Sure, it comes with a reversible 3/8 -16 & 1/4 -20 mounting screw. The 1/4 -20 screw is standard for all cameras including Nikon 35mm SLR and current DLSR models.
