  • 1Description

The Oben CTM-2500 5-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod with VH-R2 Tilt Monopod Head Kit is a B&H Photo Kit which includes the CTM-2500 5-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod and the VH-R2 Tilt Monopod Head.

The Oben CTM-2500 5-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.

The Oben VH-R2 Tilt Monopod Head is a compact head specifically designed for monopods. The tilt head has 180° one-axis movement, allowing you to position your camera for a 90° vertical format when using a monopod. Included is a 1/4-20"-3/8" reducer bushing, which makes this head compatible with either 1/4"-20 or 3/8" mounting threads.

    The Oben CTM-2500 5-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 65", which facilitates comfortable operation for almost all users.

    The CTM-2500 is composed of 6x carbon fiber to achieve its light weight, while ensuring its stability. It can bear loads up to 26 lb, so you can mount any DSLR camera with almost any lens, a point & shoot model, or even a full-sized 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 five-section monopod collapses to just 17.3", so you can stow it in almost any carry-on bag. At only 1.05 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 CTM-2500 reviews

CTM-2500 5-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod with VH-R2 Tilt Monopod Head Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most versatile monopod I have seen. Five sections gives exceptional versatility. If I need the 'pod to be taller than I am, like when I'm shooting down a steep hillside,I extend the final section. Twist locks are QUIET and, I think, easier to use than lever locks. I got the vh r2 tilt head and I love the snap lock for the mount plate. It makes it quick to mount the camera on the 'pod when a photo opportunity arises.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oben CTM-2500 5 Section CF with VH-R2 Tilt Head This review comes all the way from Australia.� I have to say the B&H customer service is truly World class. Easy to order and fantastic open and prompt communication on every stage of the delivery process from Brooklyn NJ to Sydney Australia. Which only took 10 days. The goods arrived well protected and in first class condition thanks also to DHL couriers. What a product!!! Very well engineered, rugged design with a smooth operation of the leg clamps. I intend using this monopod for hiking in the Australian bush, into desert areas so it will get� well used. Thanks B&H and Oben, the reason I purchased this was due to a favourable review on the Photography life website. Based on this example you can believe every word of their reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value! I purchased this product just prior to a trip in Italy. It was a great value. It is very lightweight even with the head on it. That was key as we frequently spent full days walking. It readily supported my dslr and lens.
