The SUP204SR Aluminum-Alloy Photo/Video Monopod from Sirui
combines with an included tripod base to create a versatile support
system while recording with a video camera, camcorder, or DSLR. The base
features fold-out legs that when deployed, produces a 14.0" spread,
forming a stable platform that allows the monopod and camera placed on
it to swivel 360° and be tilted 20° in any direction.
Loosening the locking knob and elevating the twist lock on the tripod
base enables the swivel and tilt movements for angle or perspective
adjustments by allowing its internal ball-and-socket joint to move
freely. After recording a subject at a desired angle, the monopod can be
returned to the upright position and securely locked into place by
tightening the tripod base's locking knob and lowering its twist lock.
When configured with its tripod base, the SUP204SR Aluminum-Alloy
Photo/Video Monopod supports up to 17.6 lb and measures 26.7" when
folded. The monopod consists of four sections that utilize twist locks
for rapid deployment, and can be positioned for a minimum height of
26.8" to a maximum height of 63.5". A foam cover along the top section
provides a secure and comfortable grip while moving the monopod, and
rubber feet on the base's legs help to enhance stability on a wide
variety of surfaces.
Tripod or monopod heads, as well as cameras, lenses, or sport optics
that are directly compatible with a 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 mount can be
connected to the top of the SUP204SR, which features a reversible mount.
Immediately beneath the monopod's foam cover is a twist lock that
enables 360° of rotation that is independent of the swivel and tilt
movements provided by the tripod base. The SUP204SR is constructed from
aluminum-alloy for durability while remaining lightweight, has an
integrated wrist strap, and includes a shoulder bag with a zippered
If disconnected from the monopod, the tripod base can serve as a mini
tripod that provides a height of 7.0" and is rated to support 17.6 lb.
It can be configured to accept a camera, lens, sport optic, or tripod
head by transferring the monopod's removable top platform and reversible
mount to the top of the tripod base. Alternatively, both an included
spare top platform and spare reversible mount may be used with the
