This Benro A38FDS2 Series 3 Aluminium Monopod includes the 3-Leg Locking Base and S2 Video Head to give you a versatile still or video camera support system. Able to hold up to 5.5 lb and extend to 64.2", the removable base provides three solid points of contact with the ground, and acts like a mini tripod. A ball joint on the base allows you to smoothly pan and tilt your camera, and it can be locked so that you can pan with the head independently.

The base can be replaced with the included rubber foot for standard monopod use. The four leg sections are secured by flip locks, and it folds down to 24.2" for transport in the included carrying case. The S2 is a compact video head with 360° rotation. There are separate pan and tilt lock levers, and a sliding quick release plate helps to balance the camera.

The S2 head includes an independent pan lock, which allows you to pan smoothly without having to turn the entire monopod. Other features include tilt lock, foam hand grip and built-in bubble level. Each Benro Video Monopod Kit is based on an eighth-generation design of single leg tubes and the option of flip lever or twist leg lock mechanisms. Carrying case included.

Product Reviews


IMPORTANTLY THIS REVIEW IF FOR THE S4 HEAD NOT THE S2. I exchanged in store and paid about £50 more for an S4 head instead of the S2. Simply because the S4 plate is interchangeable with my Manfroto pods (the S2 looks like it fits but it's too small). I used this Monopod with S4 head on a commission in Vietnam, I was walking through Saigon stopping and grabbing video footage - for this it was excellent, quick to set up and lock-off the movements so that you can quickly do a smooth steady pan, then fold up and move on. Shame it's not lighter. I read that the Manfroto equivalent doesn't allow you to pan the head only - the whole pod revolves. With Benro you have the option of head only and that makes a world of difference.
