Overview: The OSN OS-150 is a high quality aluminum monopod with a 3-way panhead with a bubble level and a quick-release camera mount. It has a universal 1/4" mounting screw, and a foam hand grip. The OS-150 weighs 16 ounces, and comes in a canvas zippered case.

Panhead: The panhead sits atop the OS-150 monopod. You can tilt the panhead forward or backward (an arc of approximately 150°) and lock it into place by twisting the panning handle. The top platform can also swivel over 90° to allow you to shoot in portrait orientation as well as landscape. The single bubble level on the panhead helps you to keep your camera level while you shoot. The quick-release camera mounting platform has a standard 1/4" mounting screw with a spring-loaded alignment post. It can be removed from the panhead by flipping open the locking lever.

Leg: The upper section of the 4-section aluminum leg on the OS-150 has a diameter of 30mm (1.2"). The quick lever leg locks can secure the leg at any length. The rubber foot works best indoors and on hard outdoor surfaces. The foot can be retracted to reveal a metal ground spike for dirt and grassy surfaces.

Great while on the run

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This monopod has become a blessing for me in more ways than one. It is lightweight and takes up very little space when taking equipment to and from a photo shoot. I like to catch moments of time with nature, pets, people and other objects but am always trying to find a stable spot to shoot from. This monopod has solved that problem plus now keeps me from getting blurred images due to a tremor that I have in my hands. Quick setup and placement equals great shots that I otherwise would have missed not using it. If you are used to using a tripod but have to keep moving around because of what you are doing, the monopod lets you shoot quickly without having to think. Also because of the panhead that is on this unit gives even more flexibility to the shoots with the vertical and horizontal positioning of the camera! Buy this monopod - I am one happy camper with it now and can't imagine me doing any photoshoot without it! One of the best investments in equipment that I have made!
