The ChickenFoot Aluminum Monopod from VariZoom is a compact and lightweight support that offers the portability and quick setup of a conventional monopod, with the added stability of a tripod base. The tripod base is connected to the monopod section with a ball joint that allows smooth re-positioning of the monopod so you can capture any angle needed. Capable of operating as a tripod/monopod, basic handheld stabilizer, telescoping handheld boom for small cameras, or even a stand for small lights and microphones, the ChickenFoot-AL will quickly find a place in your videography toolkit.
The 4-stage aluminum design allows the unit to collapse into a very compact form and expand to an extended height of 79.2" while retaining rigidity. Twist-lock fittings provide easy and secure adjustment for on-the-go shooting. The 'chickenfoot' tripod base folds up for transport, and locks down into 3 positions for flexible configuration. It can even be removed if you wish to use the system as a traditional monopod. The adjustable rubber tripod feet twist out for leveling adjustment, and spiked feet are included for added stability on different surfaces.
You can mount your camera directly to the flat base for lightweight operation or add your own photo or video head for precise pan/tilt control. Also included with the unit are a soft padded carrying case and removable wrist strap for safe handling.
Twist locks enable quick and secure height adjustment.
Both adjustable rubber feet and spiked feet are included so you can use the monopod on various surfaces such as sand, ice, carpet or slippery floors.
The three feet fold up for transport, and fold down and lock into three positions, giving you various heights and stability.
