Oben CTM-2400 4-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod

The Oben CTM-2400 4-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod is an extremely lightweight yet sturdy one-legged camera support that enables you to capture steady shots without needing to carry or set up a full tripod. The monopod has an anti-rotation shaft, so its twist locks can be disengaged all at once to deploy each leg stage instantly, making setup a breeze. Maximum height is 59.2", which facilitates comfortable operation for most users.

The CTM-2400 is composed of 6x carbon fiber to achieve its light weight (a mere 0.85 lb) while ensuring its stability. It can bear loads up to 22 lb, so you can mount any DSLR camera with most lenses, a point & shoot model, or even a camcorder.

For fine control over camera orientation, you can also 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 18.3", so you can stow it in most carry-on bags. At only 0.85 lb, it's the perfect travel companion – lightweight, compact, and simple to operate – but highly capable 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
Metal spike emerges from rubber foot, for extra stability in grass, gravel, and other loose terrain
Foam grip 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

Oben VH-A30 Tilt Head for Monopods

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.

Sturdy and Strong

The VH-A30 boasts a load capacity of 33 pounds, which is more than enough for any camera and lens combination you're likely to use on a monopod. Solid aluminum construction weathers the elements and tolerates the most demanding use, whether you're shooting wildlife, nature, or a sporting event.

Light and Compact

If you're going to be running up and down the sidelines to keep up with the action, you can't use gear that slows you down. Weighing less than a pound, when you need to make a quick location change, you can easily slip the tilt head into your coat pocket.

180° Tilt

The ability to quickly change your aim is one thing a monopod does best. The VH-A30 tilt head delivers the flexibility to adjust your camera's angle, and still maintain control over the camera and lens. The VH-A30 tilts a full 90° up or down, and the locking knob lets you easily adjust the tension on the ball.

Bubble Level

Shooting with a monopod makes it challenging to keep your camera level. A glance at the integrated bubble level helps you align your camera with the horizon and keep your shots level.

Quick Release Plate

The ability to quickly attach your camera and lens, and quickly move your camera from a tripod to a monopod, is vital when you're shooting nature, wildlife, and sports. The included QR-20 Quick Release plate lets you mount and unmount your camera from the head with a simple twist of the wrist, and the plate is also available separately, so you can attach one to each of your cameras for fast and effortless swapping.

Sturdy, lightweight, and easy to use. I was looking for something that is portable but strong enough to support my large lens. Very happy with this purchase and the price was great!

I use the Oben CTM 2400 monopod to support a 50 mm spotting scope that I use for birding. The monopod meets my needs perfectly. It's light weight and folds down into a packable size. It is easy to adjust to the proper height and supports the spotting scope well. It is high quality in all respects.

Doesn’t replace tripod but very useful in a pinch. I used it on a small boat cruise in Alaska when shooting from boat. Also doubled as walking stick,

All around a solid Monopod - Light and Strong

This monopod has all of the things that I was looking for: Collapses to a nice small size to strap to or put in a backpack. Quickly and easily sets up to whatever height you need for most situations from low to high. It has a padded top that doesn't make your hands cold on fall days. It works well for smooth ground with its rubber bottom as well as for uneven dirt, by turning the bottom to expose the metal that digs into ground. A very nice added bonus is the solid belt clip attached to the hand strap, which worked on my belt well and I didn't have to keep taking it in and out of my backpack.

Love the light weight monopod!

Works well. Use it with flag pole carrier to easily carry my Canon R6 and RF 100-500 with a Wimberley type head (Magnus) that is very light. Keeps weight off the arms.

The CTM-2400 has a listed load capacity of 22 lb and the VH-A30 has a load capacity of 33 lb and yet the kit is listed with a load capacity of 11 lb. Is this accurate? I would imagine that the combined load capacity would be a minimum of 22 lb. Does combining the two items lower the load capacity?
Asked by: Timothy
It's likely that the kit previously used a less sturdy head and we forgot to change the information. It can definitely handle more than 11 lbs.

question

What is the exact weight of the tripod - just over 1 lb isn't very accurate.Also, what is the weight of the VH-R2 monopod head?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Velbon CTM-2400 4-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod weighs 12.8 oz (0.38 kg). The VH-R2 Swivel/Tilt Monopod Head weighs 10.2 oz (.29 kg). So, together the CTM-2400 4-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod w/ VH-R2 Swivel/Tilt Monopod Head Kit weighs 23 oz (0.67 kg).

Can the VHR2 tilt heads for mono pods work with the CTM 2500 Monopod. Can the head also be used on tripods
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, the VHR2 tilt head is also compatible with the CTM 2500 model monopod. It can be mounted on tripods but is less useful as it has a limited range of movement when used on a tripod.

Can the tip end, including rubber covering, of this Monopod be removed and replaced with a whole new Tip? If removable, can replacement tips actually be purchased? I use the Monopod as a walking staff as well as for camera support and the rubber is largely gone.
