The new 5-section XPRO Monopod is a brand new professional camera monopod made to satisfy photographers who need a highly portable, high-performance solution they can easily carry when they are travelling. The MPMXPROA5 is the most compact Manfrotto monopod in the new range. It is easily packable in a backpack or messenger camera bag. And because portability can’t come at the cost of performance, the new MPMXPROA5 photo monopod has the state of the art capabilities of the Manfrotto 190 collection and 055 collection legs, providing rigidity and locking safety on a professional level. When combined with the 234RC photo monopod head and a camera, it enhances the shooting experience by dramatically increasing framing speed and versatility.
This monopod is compatible with Manfrotto’s full fluid base (MVMXPROBASE) and allows you to transform your photo monopod into a professional full fluid video monopod. The innovative FLUIDTECH solution allows for a 3D fluid movement – on pan, tilt and swivel, with a pioneering technology based on a spherical system located inside the base which deliver ultimate smoothness through an expanded range of perspectives. The three retractable feet make it extremely portable when folded and allow the monopod to be easily carried everywhere. The MVMXPROBASE can be attached to the XPRO Photo Monopod+ by unscrewing the foot at the bottom of the monopod and convert the photo monopod to a video one for smooth video footage.
The MVMXPROBASE is compatible with all XPRO Photo Monopods+, but the MMXPROA3B. The MPMXPROA5 is a 5-section photo monopod that is only 41cm when closed and weighs just 0,7kg. Its D-shaped aluminum tubes improve anti-rotation resistance throughout the monopod, following the photographer’s rapid rotation movements. Combined with the Quick Power Lock (QPL) which strongly locks the lever onto the monopod tube’s flat side, this eliminates unwanted jerky movements. Enriched with newly designed leg warmer and dual 1/4″ – 3/8″ camera fixing screw, it is now even handier and more versatile out in the field.
