The MVMXPROA4US XPRO Video Monopod+ from Manfrotto is a versatile aluminium support equipped with Manfrotto's FLUIDTECH base—a unique monopod foot which allows for fluid pans and tilts normally unachievable on a standard photo monopod.
A handy tool for nearly any videographer or filmmaker, a monopod can often travel places tripods cannot, providing additional stability and supporting heavy equipment when required. The MVMXPROA4US features a 4-section design which, when paired with its aluminium construction, results in an easy-to-transport design weighing just 1.2 kg. With a maximum height of 1.92 m and a minimum height of just 0.68 m, the MVMXPROA4US can be adjusted to suit users of varying heights and for various different tasks.
While the design of a monopod is relatively simple the Manfrotto Monopod+ line utilises some innovative features which make using the MVMXPROA4US fast and easy. The primary feature of the line is the inclusion of Manfrotto's patented Power-Lock flip locks which snap open and closed to ensure fast operation and a tight, unyielding lock. The D-shaped leg sections have been designed not only to compliment the Power-Locks but also to prevent unwanted twisting between leg sections and increase the stability of the monopod.
The integrated FLUIDTECH base utilises a "3D" fluid cartridge which facilitates smooth pans and tilts from a single connection point. The cartridge may be locked vertically to isolate movement to only the 360° panning axis, allowing for smooth, level, uninterrupted rotation. While engaging the vertical lock may allow the monopod to stand, it does not support free-standing function and should not be left unattended when not in use.
Additionally, the Monopod+ line also features Manfrotto's standard rubber leg warmer for an improved grip and an adjustable hand strap for extra security. A 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting thread is placed at the top of the monopod in the centre of the baseplate, allowing users to either, direct mount a camera or lens, or use an articulating head if required.
