The metallic slate gray Alan Professional Monopod and Docz2 Foot Stabilizer Kit from 3 Legged Thing is a robust support that can allow any large telephoto lens to pivot smoothly and accurately while following a subject to photograph or for video capture.
The 3 Legged Thing Alan Carbon Fiber Monopod is a 5-section support that can be used for videography and sports photography, and can be used in areas where tripods are not allowed or cannot travel. Each of the 5 sections has a twist-lock that opens with a 1/4 turn, and fully extended, the monopod reaches a maximum height of 58.7". To travel with the 1.3 lb monopod, it collapses to a closed length of 17.7", which is suitable to store in any baggage or suitcase. The top of the support features a Tri-Mount plate that allows accessories to be attched to any of the three open spurs, and a 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 reversible thread helps to mount either a head or camera to the top. A large rubber grip with water channels disperses moisture to maintain a firm hold on the monopod. In addition, a 3/8"-16 socket located at the bottom of the monopod allows a microphone or other accessory to attach, for use as a boom pole.
The gray/black DocZ2 Foot Stabilizer for Monopods from 3 Legged Thing can mount to compatible monopods via its 1/4"-20 threaded mounting stud, but a 3/8"-16 stud adapter is included for monopods with a larger socket at the bottom. This foot stabilizer is designed to add stability to the support, and with its rubber boot friction control it creates a smoother pivot when shooting a video or tracking a fast-moving subject. Also, the adjustable ball locks into place, and the foot has a load capacity of 44 lb. This 1.1 lb stabilizer has an alternate use as a mini or tabletop tripod with rubberized feet that add traction on smooth surfaces or a better grip on uneven ground. To store, the 3.5" tall tripod's feet fold upward to a compact 6.5".
