Today’s videographers are taking full advantage of the new generation of high performance, compact video cameras and DSLRs. Having the ability to produce professional results from a camera that can go anywhere and do virtually anything, has unshackled these artists both mentally and physically. While the need for big, bulky video tripods has diminished, there is still a need for a stable, flexible video support system that matches the portability of the latest camera systems.
SIRUI P-S Series Photo/Video Monopods have three sturdy fold-down support feet that provide stability and flexibility not possible with standard monopods! The rugged feet allow you to pan the monopod 360° and tilt 20° in any direction without worrying that the monopod will move out of position! And you can step on the feet for even greater stability!
This unique feature lets you easily follow moving subjects, even if your video head or monopod head does not have a panning base!
Only the top section of the monopod turns – not the entire shaft. That means you can hold onto the monopod for added stability and control! No other system has this important capability.
It’s foam padded for a comfortable feel and secure hold in cold or wet conditions. And, if you don’t need the panning function, simply tighten the locking collar.
To tilt the monopod 20° in any direction, SIRUI utilizes a precision ball head mechanism in the base of the monopod. You can easily control the amount of drag (based on the size of the equipment and your personal preferences) by turning the tension control knob on the base. To restrict movement (no tilting) you can twist the vertical locking collar and turn it into an upright monopod with support feet *.
The support feet can fold flush and lock into position against the monopod leg.
If you don’t need the feet, you can easily unscrew them and convert the SIRUI P-S Photo/video Monopod into a “conventional” monopod (you still have the built-in 360° panning grip – a SIRUI exclusive!).
And for added flexibility, the patented feet can be used as a table-top or low angle tripod!
SIRUI P-S Series Photo/video monopods are equally at home with photo and video equipment. And if you need to get your equipment up high or want an unusual perspective, you can, thanks to their rugged construction and lightweight design!!
The SIRUI P-S Series Photo/Video Monopod comes in 3 sizes. The economical, compact SIRUI P-204S is made of high strength aluminum alloy. It is also available with lightweight, vibration reducing 8-layer 100% Carbon Fiber – as the SIRUI P-224S. Both can hold up to 17.6 lb. (8 kg), open to 63 inches (160 cm) tall and fold down to 27.1 inches (690 mm). If you need a bigger support, you can buy the SIRUI P-324S which holds up to 22 lb. (10 kg), is 68.9 inches (175 cm) tall and folds down to 28.5 inches (72.5 cm). When only the biggest and strongest will do, consider the SIRUI P-424S – it holds up to 26.4 lb. (12 kg), opens to 74.8 inches (190 cm) and folds down to only 30.1 inches (76.5 cm)!
The SIRUI P-S Series Monopod was designed alongside the new SIRUI VH-10 Professional Compact Fluid Video Head. The VH-10 is a high quality fluid video head that is designed for use with the latest video and DSLR cameras. When you combine the SIRUI VH-10 and P-S Series Monopod, you have an unbeatable package! All the features you need, in a compact system that’s ready to go anywhere you are! Fast, compact, lightweight, rugged!
