A MONOPOD FOR EVERY OCCASION
Manfrotto Releases Six New Monopods Under XPRO Range
Manfrotto is among the top names when it comes to tripods and monopods. Recently, the company updated its product range with a new series of monopods, called the XPRO monopods. These monopods consist of six models under the Prime, Over, and Land names.
The Prime range consists of two aluminum builds – both have three sections, though one (MMXPROA3B) has a retractable three-leg-stand mechanism. These monopods are able to support the heaviest of cameras, capping out at 10kg.
As for the Over range, there are three variants. There first two are built with carbon fiber and are available in either four or five sections. The final Over variant is made out of aluminum, and has four sections. Last but not least, there’s the Land monopod, which only has one variant currently. It’s a five-section monopod that’s great for traveling, as it folds down to just 41.5 cm, making it incredibly easy to be packed into backpacks or even messenger bags.
All XPRO monopods feature the new Quick Power Lock, which allows for a fast locking grip that can be locked or unlocked using just one hand.
Currently, there’s no news about pricing and availability in Malaysia, but hopefully it will be here soon, as Manfrotto UK has already begun selling them.
