There are four legs to this stand, which can be easily folded down when not in use, and speedily put up when you're starting the shoot. Other great additions include a unique angled wrist strap, giving you extra control of you kit, and a new rubber legwarmer. To combat any signs of wear and tear, the durable, tension-adjustable magnesium leg locks can be tightened as required, extending the stand’s lifespan even further. Getting started is easy, too. you simply screw the monopod directly onto the tripod mount beneath your camera, and adapt for other gear as required with the handy, universal 6.35mm and 9.5mm attachments.
