The Libec HFMP Video Monopod has three feet which incorporate a smooth lock/release feature and this allows the monopod to stand on its own when locked off, yet it quickly becomes free moving when the lock is released. Libec class this as a hands free monopod because the three feet act like a mini tripod support which allows the monopod to stand on its own with a wide range of cameras, allowing users 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.
The ball joint above the feet allow for a smooth panoramic movement and the feet on the monopod fold up when not being used. To help with the height adjustment Libec have added a variety of height markings and the monopod is supplied with its own transit bag.
Free-stand Base with large rubber feet:
The Free-stand Base located at the bottom of the monopod allows you to instantly switch the monopod's function from a shooting mode to a locked vertical position with a single step.
Step Lock/Release Foot Pedal:
A unique foot pedal with a smart lock/release feature allows the monopod to switch its function from a shooting mode to a secure vertical locked position with a single step. A helpful "Click" sound is present when switching between modes, conveniently indicating when the monopod is released or locked into the vertical position.
Smooth Panoramic Rotation:
A special built-in lubricated ball joint system, designed to prevent dust and debris from entering, offers smooth quality pan and tilt movements, allowing you to achieve smooth professional shots.
Quick adjustments for your Preferred Height:
A sleek design with numeric indicators for your preferred height settings, allows you to make quick height adjustments for consistent angled and measured shots. The HFMP with video head has a maximum height of 189.5cm/74.6" and a minimum height of 87.5cm/34.4”.
Speedy Open / Close functions:
Designed for swift setups and compact travel, these user-friendly folding legs can be easily opened and closed with a push of a button, especially useful for run&gun situations.
Dual size designed carrying bag Included:
Dual size travel bag to carry or store the monopod with or without the head, offering speedy travel and easy storage.
NOTE: Although the HFMP is designed to stand on its own base, we strongly recommend that you do not leave the monopod unattended at any time.
