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 452.
    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 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 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improve your photos and take the weight off yourself This product has been great so far. It is small and lightweight, however can also extend out tall enough to shoot over a fence. My sports pictures have turned out much sharper since I purchased this monopod. What I really enjoy is not having to worry about holding my camera, this really takes the weight off your hands and neck (if you wear your camera strap). I have my camera mounted to a quick release assembly and have the ability to take it off and on the monopod very quickly. This monopod also came with an affordable price. I have no complaints.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive monopod! How I use the Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod: - I received this monopod as a freebie in my package when I recently purchased my Canon 6D under promotion. What I like about the Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod: - First of all, great build. It feels very secure and sturdy. Everything moves well mechanically, from the latches and the legs. It comes with a protective bag/case, so that's always nice! What I don't like about the Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod: - Absolutely nothing. It's great for the price I saw it being sold for. Another great freebie among all possible. Overall: - This replaced a cheap tripod I once paid for and I can't wait to but a head for this one! =
