The Manfrotto Xpro Monopod Plus Aluminum 3 section monopod is an excellent choice for supporting your DSLR, mirrorless, compact and/or video cameras. Monopods are often used for providing stability and supporting heavy equipment during long shoots, and the new Xpro series from Manfrotto takes that to a whole new level. Manfrotto has added their patented Power-Lock flip locks for quick operation, while not yielding any of the holding power that has put them at the top of the market. The D-shaped leg sections have been incorporated into the design to compliment the Power-Locks and to prevent unwanted twisting between leg sections, therefore increasing the stability of the monopod. The Manfrotto Plus line also has a rubber leg warmer for improved grip and an adjustable hand strap for extra security. Manfrotto's dual 1/4"-20 and 3/8" mounting thread is on top of the monopod, allowing users to direct mount a camera or use a head if required.
