This compact and lightweight support offers the portability and quick setup of a conventional monopod with the added stability of a tripod base. The tripod base is connected to the monopod section with a ball joint that allows smooth repositioning of the monopod so you can capture any angle needed. Capable of operating as a tripod/monopod, basic handheld stabilizer, telescoping handheld boom for small cameras, or even a stand for small lights and microphones, the VariZoom CHICKENFOOT will quickly find a place in your videography toolkit.
The 4-stage carbon fiber monopod allows the unit to collapse into a very compact form and expand to an extended height of 6.6 feet while retaining excellent rigidity. High quality twist-lock fittings provide easy and secure adjustment for on-the-go shooting. The ‘chickenfoot’ tripod base folds up for transport and locks down into 3 positions for flexible configuration, and it can even be removed if you wish to use the system as a traditional ‘monopod’. The adjustable rubber tripod feet thread out for leveling adjustment, and spiked feet are also included for added stability on different surfaces.
You can mount your camera directly to the flat base for lightweight operation or add your own photo or video head for precise pan/tilt control. Add your own head or a CHICKENHEAD for fluid pan/tilt on video shooting. Also included with the unit are a soft padded carrying case and removable wrist strap for safe handling.
