You don’t need magic powers to turn this Hama Alpenpod walking stick into a monopod camera support, just some adjustments.
As a walking stick the Alpenpod includes anti-shock cushioning, a compass and a wrist strap. It also has a removable rubber stop that reveals a spike for when the going gets tough.
That spike comes in handy in monopod mode too. You can dig it into the ground for more stability. The monopod has a 3-part leg, 2 of which are extendable, and a 2D camera support head.
The monopod is useful for shooting over obstacles such as the audience at a concert.
