The Manfrotto Element Monopod Black Alu can hold an outstanding 33.07 lbs payload, accommodating telephoto lenses up to 500 mm. At the same time, it weighs only 17.64 oz and collapses down to 16.39" for excellent portability. The 5 aluminum leg sections make the monopod highly sturdy to minimize the effect of external vibrations. You can outfit the monopod with the included rubber or spiked foot depending on the terrain you're shooting on, giving you more stability. The twist locks make height adjustments extremely fast, making it a breeze to transition between shooting levels!
