This item is of great quality, I purchased an inexpensive monopod at first but got rid of it pretty quickly. This monopod keeps my canon t5i with battery grip and my Canon 300mm L lens very steady and secured. I am using with a Pro Master Ball Head.

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...

A Canon devotee for life

Comments about Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod:

These are initial impressions of the Canon5D Mark III and 24-105 EF L lens kit. It is a solid and impressive handful of hardware and software. Left in A+ scene intelligent auto it is a heavy duty point and shoot. Dive into the 400 page user manual and the options are nearly limitless. The magnesium alloy body is a featherweight. Add a proper Canon L zoom lens and you're talking committed photography.

My mega-pixel challenged previous camera is the Canon 20D. It served the purpose in 2004 in the game parks of Africa in combination with a Canon 100-300 EF zoom and a Tamron 1.4 extender. Those lenses are compatible with the 5D but the max focal length drops from 672mm to 420mm switching from APS-C to Full Frame. Included is the August 21, 2017 eclipse photo from Clinton, SC. The next stop at B & H will be a 400mm L lens.

B&H included this monopod with the purchase of our 5D Mark iii, and we absolutely love it. The aluminum is light to hold, but built incredibly sturdy and strong. The adjustable sections are easy to open and collapse and the wrench can tighten and loosen the bolts to adjust to your needs! Highly recommend!

Excellent Monopod for the Price

By Kizz

Comments about Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod:

I own an Oben tripod and a couple of Open ball heads that I have been very pleased with. So, when I was shopping for a monopod, I considered several other brands but ultimately decided to try the Open monopod because of my experiences with Open products. Well, I'm not disappointed in my decision! This is a quality product for a fantastic price. It is very sturdy while holding my Canon 7D and lenses. Even though it is substantial in size when compared to cheaper monopods, it is very lightweight. The attached allen key for tightening flip locks is a handy little touch. Set up is a breeze. All-in-all, I look for this monopod to be dependable and long-lasting.

Comments about Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod:

Have only used this a few times. Seems to be a well made solid monopod. I use it with a Nikon D7100 with a Nikon 200-500mm lens. No problem holding the weight. Considering adding a tilt or ball head. Only 4 stars because I cannot assess the durability as yet. That takes extended use.

Excellent mono-pod, very light but strong. Feels well made, soft grip is definitely a bonus and the price was most certainly right. Recommended.

Plate snapped right of the leg!

By chaim

Comments about Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod:

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.

Comments about Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod:

I wanted something simple that I could easily take almost anywhere. This monopod fits the bill. Added an Oben Qra-R2 quick release assembly with extra mounting plates and I'm good to go. While not entirely effortless, this device does provide some additional stabilization so you can clean up those shaky videos. Add a cell phone attachment and shoot almost like a pro.

A fine monopod as far as monopods go... i like the releases as opposed to the twist releases, so that's a plus.
