TheVelbon UP-400DX Video Monopodis a lightweight camcorder support with an integrated tilting video head. The four sections of the UP-400DX extend to a maximum height of 66.5" and retract to 22.4" for easy transport or storage.
The removable pan bar controls the front-to-back tilt of the head, and it can be employed to rotate the monopod at the foot for panning. The head's tilt action features a measure of resistance for a fluid effect, ensuring this movement is not haphazard or jerky but rather deliberate and smooth. The back-to-front tilt range is -45 to 90°.
The monopod head is matched with a QB-4L quick release plate, which is longer than typical quick release plates that are designed for still cameras. It features a video pin for extra camcorder stability.
With the adjustable shoulder strap the UP-400DX provides a convenient way to carry the monopod. Wrapped around your arm or body while you operate the camcorder, the strap can serve as a line of security for your gear, in case your grip on the monopod slips.
