The Oben ACM-2400L 4-Section Aluminum Self-Standing Monopod with VH-A30 Tilt Monopod Head Kit is a B&H Photo Kit that includes the ACM-2400L 4-Section Aluminum Self-Standing Monopod with Mini-Legs and the VH-A30 Tilt Monopod Head.
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.
This VH-A30 Tilt Head for Monopods from Oben provides the support and control you need when you're shooting nature, wildlife, and sports. The head features a load capacity of 33 lb, making it sturdy and strong enough for any camera and lens combination you're likely to use on a monopod. The solidly-built head features 180° of vertical tilt with an ergonomic tilt lock that's located right where you hold your monopod, so effortless friction adjustment can be done with one hand.
The VH-A30 boasts durable aluminum construction that will stand up to the most demanding use, and the head is equipped with an Arca-type QR-20 quick release plate that's perfect for quickly mounting and swapping cameras. Additionally, an integrated bubble level helps you level your camera, so your exposures are aligned with the horizon, a plus when you're shooting sports or nature.
