The M-Series MonoPOD module locks into the M-Series Grip and provides the user a quick deploying monopod for when fine elevation control is needed. The M-Series MonoPOD has a spring-loaded, first stage screw that extends to 3 below the grip base. This stage can be extended and retracted via the release button within the thumbwheel or by turning the thumbwheel to slowly dial in the correct elevation. Turning the thumbwheel does not turn the screw, reducing the propensity for the footer to walk. The second stage is a coarse adjustment to give the first stage more reach. This stage adds a binary 1.25 of length for a total possible extension length of 4.25 from the base of the grip.
