The Manfrotto MPMXPROA5 is a 5 section professional camera monopod made to satisfy photographers who need a highly portable, high-performance solution they can easily carry when they are travelling. It is the most compact system in the new XPRO range and is easily packable in a backpack or messenger camera bag, measuring just 41cm at its minimum height. Weighing in at just 700g it is also lightweight yet will support camera set-ups that weigh up to 6kg.
The Manfrotto MPMXPROA5 5 section monopod retracts to just 41cm for transit and can extend to a maximum height of 141cm with the state-of-the-art Manfrotto legs that have the perfect combination of rigidity and locking safety. The new D-shaped aluminium tubes greatly improve anti-rotation resistance throughout the monopod, following the photographer’s rotational movements. Combined with the quick power locks which strongly lock the lever onto the monopod tube’s flat side, this eliminates unwanted jerky movements.
The monopod is enriched with a newly designed leg warmer handgrip and a dual 1/4'' - 3/8'' camera fixing screw, allowing you to connect the camera directly to the monopod or via a ball head, tilt head or quick release adaptor.
This MPMXPROA5 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. It is compatible with all XPRO Photo Monopods+, except the MMXPROA3B, and can be found as a related product below.
