Famall Monopod with Feet
All the monopod we got were at or over 5 feet in length, but at 70.6, the Famall was only 0.9 inches short. The lightweight metal construction feels right in the hand, and the monopod's quick release plate makes camera installation easy.
The telescoping Monopod tripod works as a monopod, a tripod, and as a camera support. The Monopod can be quickly released to its unique foldable tripod form with a press of a button. When extended, it functions as a stable, telescopic, non-skid support. The modular tripod is expandable from 36" to 73.2". The 360 degree panning head can rotate up to 360 degrees horizontally and 90 degrees vertically. With a quick-release function, you can free your hands to capture video and photos.
