We don’t often get excited about monopods, but we are excited about the New Manfrotto 561B Video monopod. It has a very unique design and is extremely functional.
The Manfrotto 561B is a 4-section aluminum monopod. It is equipped with a fluid head able to support up to 4kg. The key feature of this monopod is the fluid cartridge incorporated into the base that gives you an incredibly smooth panning action. The maximum height is 200cm, but closed it reaches the compact size of 76.5cm. The fluid video head features a new sliding plate which was made ad-hoc for this model. The ergonomic pan-bar allows smooth panning and tilting movements. Small and lightweight, this video head is ideal when combined with the high performance of the 561B monopod. The three retractable feet ensure a firm footing, and of course the fluid cartridge helps Videographers obtain superior images.
With the unique fluid drag system in the base of the monopod it makes panning a breeze. And the professional quality fluid head makes tilt shots super smooth. Its compact and lightweight (1.9kg), this device will change to way you shoot video.
