Let’s talk support systems! Specifically, let’s talk about monopods. Tripods are the obvious answer for your video kit, but monopods are an increasingly popular option if you plan to be more mobile or work in tighter spaces.
So popular that there are tons of brands with their own version of the video monopod.
It has a large, round flat base that let’s it stand up by itself and collapses down to a tiny size.
Even monopods with feet aren’t the most stable. Those are usually designed to be held at all times and just provide some extra stability for quick shooting.
The round base of the A200 let’s it stand up without support, isn’t a trip hazard, and if you want you can easily add a sandbag for extra stability.
Small homes or studios, events, and on desks all work well with this design.
It has a standard mount on top, too, meaning you can add tons of accessories to mount tons of useful tools. Can make it helpful all the time even if not for a camera.
Height adjustment is super quick. The base is also able to be removed with ease for packing it up and traveling with it.
It’ll hold a decent amount of weight as they have a mirrorless camera with a lens, microphone, and a couple of arms with accessories mounted on it.
Having a monopod as an option in your kit is looking like something everyone should have.
