If you shoot sport or wildlife, a mono­pod is a use­ful ad­di­tion to your kit that will take the weight off your cam­era and lens off your arms, while still giv­ing you plenty of free­dom of move­ment. The Alan is a high-qual­ity car­bon fi­bre mono­pod that col­lapses down to 45cm for easy trans­porta­tion. It ex­tends to 1.49m, which means some taller pho­tog­ra­phers may need to stoop, but that of­ten feels nat­u­ral when you’re look­ing in a viewfinder.

The four chunky twist locks are quick and easy to use, so the Alan is ready for ac­tion in sec­onds. It screws di­rectly into the base of a cam­era or lens tri­pod foot, but it can also be used with an op­tional tri­pod head if you pre­fer.

De­spite weigh­ing just 600g, the Alan has an im­pres­sive pay­load of 60kg and the broad rub­berised grip at the top is com­fort­able to hold in all weather.
