MeFoto, makers of my most favorite travel tripod, today announced a new addition to their product line: the WalkAbout monopod, which also looks like it could be used as a general walking stick. It comes in a host of colors, similar to the tripod line, and also sports a removable compass for when it's not attached to a camera.
The monopods come in gold, blue, green, red, titanium, purple, orange and black. The MeFOTO WalkAbout has a weight capacity of 30.9 pounds making it compatible with most cameras you would use a monopod with, while only weighing 1.4 pounds. The monopods are made of aluminum, as with the traditional options with the tripods.
Stuff the monopods feature:
- Removable compass knob
- Maximum extended height of 60.4 inches
- Minimum height of 18.1 inches
- Quick Twist Rubber Lock Grips with Anti-Rotating Legs
- Standard ¼-20” thread for mounting camera
- Foam Grip
The monopods are only $60, and are available now.
