The P-426SR Carbon-Fiber 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 SUP426SR Carbon-Fiber
Photo/Video Monopod supports up to 22.0 lb and measures 22.5" when
folded. The monopod consists of six sections that utilize twist locks
for rapid deployment, and can be positioned for a minimum height of
22.6" to a maximum height of 63.0". 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 SUP426SR, 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 monopod is constructed from
carbon fiber for durability while minimizing weight, has an integrated
wrist strap, and a shoulder bag with a zippered closure is included.
If disconnected from the monopod, the aluminum-alloy 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 tripod base.
Also provided are two rubber feet and a spiked foot to facilitate the
monopod's use apart from the tripod base on hard or soft surfaces.
