Unfortunately, Amazon marketplace deals aren't allowed here, so this deal will probably be deleted soon. Good posting, though. I'll drop you some rep in another thread for it.

I don't think I actually mean Marketplace (and have amended post accordingly), it's a legitimate Amazon item supplied by an affiliate (Avides Media), rather than a link to other sellers as with Marketplace items.

Thanks for the rep anyway!

Good deal heat added:thumbsup:

This may sound silly but does anyone know of a monopod where you can remove the foot leaving you with a female thread. thus enabling you to attach it to this tripod making a hybrid tri/monopod :w00t:

I'm sure this is really good but for those that are after really light weight for travel check this out :

*********.ie/HQ-…353

I have one - it is higher at just over a metre and a little lighter - on my kitchen scales it is 460gm and when you travel Ryanair every gm counts !

Nice!
Ordered - heat and rep addded.

Now who can come up with a bargain head? (Folds arms, taps foot and waits.........:whistling:)

I think you'll find that quite a lot of monopods actually have a big rubber foot, that screws up and down to reveal a metal point which will do what you want...in fact most tripods have the same facility...

Would this be ok to mount a video camera on?

I'm after a CHEAP tripod to mount my video camera on but dont know much about them

Any ideas muchly appreciated

It says "Maximum recommended loading 2.5kg"

so if your video weighs less than that you should be OK, will also need to take account of the additional weight of a pan and tilt head. Keep in mind the maximum height fully extended is only 58cm - thats under 2 ft. Looks a bit flimsy for my camcorder.

Thanks for that but the monopod does indeed have a screw spike when removing the rubber foot hence you would unable to attach to this tripod as it’s screw to screw. Also they would probably have different threads so even a threaded tube would be of no use. My thought was to be able to carry the two and use them independently but also to combine them when needed.

I always seem to carry to much equipment but never have just the right thing
