This Benro A48FDS4 Series 4 Aluminum Monopod includes the 3-Leg Locking Base and S4 Video Head to give you a versatile still or video camera support system. Able to hold up to 8.8 lb and extend to 68.5", the removable base provides three solid points of contact with the ground, and acts like a mini tripod. A ball joint on the base allows you to smoothly pan and tilt your camera, and it can be locked so that you can pan with the head independently.
The base can be replaced with the included rubber foot for standard monopod use. The four leg sections are secured by flip locks, and it folds down to 26" for transport in the included carrying case. The S4 is a compact video head with 360° rotation, fluid drag, and spring balance. There are separate pan and tilt lock levers, and a sliding quick-release plate helps to balance the camera.

The sliding quick-release (QR) plate helps to balance the camera, and the head comes with a safety lock for the QR Plate. The S4 Video Head accepts 501PL compatible quick-release plates, making it easy to find spares or replacements.
The integrated bubble level aids in setting up level horizons. The adjustable Pan Handle can be mounted to either side of the S4 Video Head using the built in mounting rosettes.
