The HFMP Hands-Free Monopod is a professional video monopod that is specially designed for free-stand operations. It consists of the HFMP Hands-Free Monopod and a carrying case.
Designed with an exceptional mini tripod structure with increased stability that allows the monopod to stand on its own with a wide range of 4K UHD/HD/DV camcorders and DSLR cameras, allowing you to multi-task and make equipment adjustments in between shots, without the need to lay the monopod on the floor or lean it against the wall.
This cleverly designed monopod is ideal for those videographers who truly value operability and mobility. The HFMP is your next smart monopod companion for all your photo/video/DSLR needs including home videos, documentaries, corporate assignments, weddings & events, nature, sports and journalist newsgatherings.
This New style monopod allows aspiring DSLR filmmakers, freelancers, and small production teams, pro level production value via HFMP's Free-stand base, step lock/release foot pedal, smooth panoramic rotations, speedy adjustments, and more.
Pan Tilt Head with Dual Head Design (Included with HFMP KIT):
Unlike other photo/video heads included with monopod kits, this video head has tilt and pan functions, and has a dual head structure (flat base/65mm bowl), making this multi-functional head compatible with 65mm bowl/flat base tripods, monopods, sliders, skater dollies, and other equipment with 3/8 inch screws. The video head supports payloads of up to 9lbs/4kg and features a built-in counterbalance for better camera balance. The head has two pan handle rosettes on each side, allowing you to place an additional pan handle for increased control, or attaching an AS-7K articulating support arm to mount other video equipment such as a monitor, resulting in higher-quality shots.
The head is equipped with a bubble level and has a tilt angle of +90° / -80°, and is amazingly lightweight at 1kg/2.2lb including the pan handle.
Industry standard Snap On/Off sliding plate (Included with HFMP KIT):
This one touch on/off sliding plate is compatible with Manfrotto and Sachtler heads, enabling quick onsite camera swaps without the need to change or remove sliding plates. Easily adjust your equipment's center of gravity to achieve a perfect counterbalance. The plate slides +/-30mm / 1.2" front to rear and includes a 1/4" screw with video pin for swift camera plate adjustments.
NOTE: Although the HFMP KIT is designed to stand on its own base, we strongly recommend that you do not leave the monopod unattended at any time.
