The 3 Legged Thing Trent Magnesium-Alloy Monopod is a 4-section support that can be used for videography and sports photography, and can be used in areas where tripods are not allowed or cannot travel. Each section has a twist-lock that opens with a 1/4 turn, and fully extended, the monopod reaches a maximum height of 80″. To travel with the 1.4 lb monopod, it collapses to a closed length of 24″.
The top of the support features a spring-loaded 3/8″-16 thread that retracts to reveal a 1/4″-20 thread to mount a head, lens, or camera to the top. A 3/8″-16 socket with a 1/4″-20 adapter is located at the bottom of the monopod too, so a microphone or other accessory can attach, for using the monopod as a boom pole. Additionally, a large rubber bubble grip, which disperses moisture, helps to maintain a firm grip to the monopod.
