The Benro Benro A38FDS2 Series 3 Aluminum Monopod Kit provides a wide footing with the 3-Leg Locking Base so your Monopod can support the included S2 Video Head. If you prefer monopods to carrying a tripod, but need the security of a wider base to support your camera on a compact video head then this is the kit for you.

This Kit Includes:

  • Benro A38FD Series 3 Aluminum Monopod
  • S2 Video Head
  • 3-Leg Locking Base


Benro A38FD Series 3 Aluminum Monopod

This Benro A38FD Series 3 Aluminum Monopod offers an extension of up to 61" and a payload capacity of up to 39.7 lb. When connected to the 3-Leg Locking Base, this Monopod provides a secure 3-point footing with a wider base than your standard monopod. 

A ball joint in the 3-Leg Locking Base means you can pan and tilt your camera smoothly with the entire Monopod or locking it securely into one position to utilize solely the S2 Video Head's pan movements. Prefer a standard Monopod due to the ground conditions at your location? Remove the 3-Leg Locking Base and return to a single, rubber foot.

Transport your Monopod at the compact size of only 21.3" long.

S2 Video Head

This compact S2 Video Head provides a lightweight (0.8lb) yet secure platform for your camera. The 60mm magnesium alloy flate base accepts a payload capacity of up to 5.5 lb and offers a 360-degree pan rotation so you can achieve smooth camera transitions. 

The S2 Video Head includes a Quick Release or QR plate. You can shift the camera forward or backward on the plate to better balance your camera, based on the optional camera accessories in your configured rig. The plate also features a safety lock on the QR plate so your camera stays in place and does not slide off. Just like other safety locks, this one includes a manual depress button so you can remove the camera when ready to do so.

Mount the adjustable pan handle on the S2 Video Head on the right or the left side. It attaches to the Head with rosettes, which makes the adjustments on this entire package tool-free. This S2 Video Head includes a 3/8"-16 threded female mounting point so you can attach it to the included Monopod or to your ball adapter, tripod, or other camera supports with the same mount option.

In addition, an integrated bubble level allows you to adjust level positioning of your camera.

3-Leg Locking Base

Secure this 3-Leg Locking Base to your Benro A38FD Monopod, or any third-party monopod, using the 3/8-16" female thread. A ball joint in the base offers you the ability to modify position and then lock the 3-Leg Base in place with a wingut-style lock. It offers a wider footing so your Monopod can be secured and positioned where you need it, plus support the ability to pan when you use it in conjunction with the provided S2 Video Head.

Each leg secures by flip locks.
