The ChickenFoot Aluminum Monopod with Fluid Head from VariZoom is a compact support that offers the portability and quick setup of a conventional monopod with the added stability of a tripod base. The tripod base connects to the monopod section with a ball joint that allows smooth re-positioning of the monopod so you can capture any angle needed. Included with this system is a fluid head for smooth panning and tilting. 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 will quickly find a place in your videography toolkit.
The 5-section aluminum design allows the unit to collapse down to 25" and expand to an extended height of 83" while retaining rigidity. Twist-lock fittings provide easy and secure adjustment for on-the-go shooting. The tripod base folds up for transport and locks down into 3 positions for flexible configuration, and 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 also included for added stability on different surfaces.
The fluid head includes one telescoping handle and a second optional handle can be added. You can even configure the unit as a hi-hat tripod by removing the tripod base and attaching the fluid head directly to it. Included with the monopod is 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.
