The Manfrotto 685B Neotec Monopod Deluxe replaces the 684B and includes four new features.The 685B Neotec Pro Photo Monopod sports a new safety lever that prevents accidental deployment of the locking release mechanism. To close the 685B monopod, simply activate the safety lever with the small ‘pinkie’finger, which then allows the grip action handle to be depressed. The lever is simple to operate while still maintaining the one-handed closing operation.
To further improve the single-handed performance of the 685B Neotec Monopod, Manfrotto has added a lightweight rubber foot pedal to make opening or closing a snap. To increase the height of the camera, simply step on the pedal and lift the monopod to the new position. For storage and transportation, the foot pedal folds away against the bottom leg section. Manfrotto has also added a protective leg-warmer on the bottom leg section of the 685B Neotec Pro Photo Monopod to provide protection against the elements and offer a comfortable grip during transportation. And for extra ground support and increased grip, a suction cup foot has been added.
