Monopods aren’t just for photographers; they’re also very useful to news videographers as well. Benro recently announced their S6 monopod for folks that need to use larger camcorders. The monopod has legs that sprout under the center column for extra stability when recording. Combined with the special video head to be used with the monopod, te product can support up to 13.2 lbs of weight. The head has all the bells and whistles that shooters want like panning, locking, etc. plus it can also be detached from the monopod and used for other applications.
The new Benro S6 Video Monopod is available now in both flip leg lock (A48FBS6) and twist leg lock (A48TBS6). Suggested retail price for the new Monopod is $249. Specs are after the jump.
