Highly versatile tool to hold and mount the Freedom360. Simply attach the Freedom360 to the “thin end” of the pole and start shooting in any direction. Or attach the monpod to a regular tripod to gain an elevated view, or use a small tabletop tripod as foot, or attach a counter weight for a simplified steadycam setup, or attach the pole with a super clamp to a overhead structure, or extend the monopod with another pole, or or or…
The basic principle behind the Freedom360 is the “vanishing” support, such as this monopod, which can me masked out before blending the final panorama, leaving either just a tiny smudged circle, or nothing at all in the final video.
This monopod is specifically modified for the Freedom360 rig, with female connectors on both ends, including a 1/4 – 3/8 stud.
- ca 160cm (full length, 140-150cm recommended)
- ca 54cm collapsed
- 4 segments
- ca 500gr weight
Use common sense: (CF) poles are build for longitudinal forces, holding them vertically limits the max load capacity. Use with caution. Never extend a segment all the way to the endstop. Always leave 5-10cm “in the tube” for each segment, the more the better. Although the Freedom360 is very light (about 525gr), additional forces can still break the carbon fiber. Use good safety practices, including safety cables, especially if you rig the rig above crowds. Inspect your monopod, and discard it if you think the CF integrity has become compromised.
Legal disclaimer: we are in no way responsible for unsafe practices when using the monopod, or should the monopod become damaged or break. Use at your own risk.
