Our take on the Velbon UP-400DX

by David Brown

A monopod provides instant stability for your camera or camcorder, along with easy mobility for when you have to follow the action you're shooting. The Velbon UP-400DX features a 4-section adjustable leg for a wide range of shooting angles. Attach your camera or small camcorder to the quick-release plate and use the pan bar to tilt up and down or pivot on the rubber foot. The lightweight aluminum design and adjustable strap make it easy to sling over your shoulder and move on, perfect for moving down the sidelines at your child's sporting event.
