The EP-204S from Sirui is a multi-function video and photo monopod designed for the modern digital content creator.
Simply put, the EP-204S is a highly versatile monopod with a range of patented special features seamlessly integrated into the design for intuitive operation. The monopod's 4-section, aluminium construction keeps it at an easy-to-carry weight of just 2.4 lb, while its solid design allows it to support up to 17.6 lb.
At its maximum height, it can reach up to 63", while capable of folding down to just 24" in length for transport or storage.
Starting its diverse list of special features is the folding tripod foot which features a lockable ball-joint connection, which allows the monopod to pivot from a single, grounded position. The locking feature allows the user to lock the monopod vertically but does not make it free-standing. Although the monopod may stand on its own, the vertical lock is intended only to level the horizon for horizontal pans and should not be left unattended.
The tripod foot may also be removed from the monopod and used as a tabletop tripod for those who may need a small support and wish to leave the monopod leg behind. Each one of the three legs folds vertically around the monopod's leg, reducing its footprint and permitting easy storage.
In addition to the unique foot, the EP-204S also features a patented 360° swivelling top grip that may be used for smooth pans when a fluid head is not required. The grip is covered by a padded leg warmer and may be engaged and disengaged by a simple aluminium twist-lock directly below the grip.
The monopod also features quick and easy-to-use flip locks for extending each leg section and a wrist strap for added security when in use. A 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 reversible stud is included along with the top plate for mounting both, tripod heads, and directly to camera
