From the manufacturer:
The Trek-Tech TrekPod GO! PRO is a unique combination of a lightweight, height-adjustable walking/hiking staff with a fully integrated tripod. It can be used with cameras, optical devices, and almost any other tripod mountable device that features a 1/4"-20 socket, such as photo lights, microphones, etc. Simply unfasten the touch-fastener loop at the bottom of the TrekPod to extend the three short legs for the tripod mode. With the legs extended, the TrekPod is now a stable but lightweight tripod. In addition, the TrekPod is a height-adjustable, fully functional monopod. The TrekPod converts between all three functions in just seconds. The TrekPod also incorporates an innovative quick-release mount/de-mount system called the MagMount.
The MagMount is an industry-first magnetic quick-release camera and optical device ballhead. It provides for the instant attachment of almost any camera, spotting scope, or other device that is mounted via the industry standard 1/4-20 threaded mounting system. It comes supplied with two plates: Extra light LF (silver) and heavy force HG (black) Mag Adaptors, so that all camera and optical devices are ready for instant attachment to the MagMount.
