Description

  The present invention relates to a structure of a hollow cylindrical body adopted as a monopod constituting member typified by a camera monopod, and more specifically, although it is normally used as a monopod, By opening the built-in tripod mechanism according to the purpose of use or usage situation, it is possible to expand the basic functions of a monopod that requires a certain level of ease of use and to construct a monopod that is easier to use. The present invention relates to an auxiliary tripod structure for a leg cylinder.

  The camera monopod, which has been widely recognized as a monopod, is a photographic equipment that is loved by photographic enthusiasts together with a tripod. Although it is not self-supporting compared to a tripod, it is inferior in stability during shooting. It has a very small installation area, is highly mobile, and is suitable for shooting fast-moving subjects as a device that has the greatest effect of preventing vertical shake, which is the most prominent among camera shakes. Also, even when shooting with a camera for a long time, the use of a monopod frees the photographer from supporting the weight of the camera so that he can concentrate on shooting accordingly.

However, with conventional monopods for cameras, the camera is placed and fixed on the top of the monopod, so the overall center of gravity tends to be biased upwards, so photography that takes advantage of the mobility of the monopod is necessary. In order to carry out without failure, the basic knowledge is “use both legs of the photographer itself, and use the monopod as a support equivalent to the tripod”, “hold the camera body with both hands, hold the monopod If you are a beginner, a woman, or an elderly person who needs to have some experience and familiarity on the premise of `` do not shoot '', the camera weight and shooting posture should be set at the bottom of the monopod. It was also a fact that it was a cumbersome photographic equipment that caused the camera to slip due to changes in the position of the camera, or to miss a photo opportunity by being distracted by changes in the posture of the monopod.
Therefore, a tripod has been proposed in consideration of the stability of the tripod and the mobility of the monopod.

  The one described in Patent Document 1 is attached to the outer surface of the center leg positioned below the monopod so that the three outer legs can be foldable through the sliding ring while maintaining the biasing force in the opening leg direction. The tripod is switched between a monopod with the outer leg folded and a tripod with the outer leg open to the outside, but when used as a tripod, the leg is easily opened by the biasing force. However, when the legs are closed, the sliding ring is pulled up against the urging force generated on the three outer legs, and the elastic bumper provided at the lower part of each outer leg is pressed against the lower surface of the center leg. Since it is restored to the monopod state by locking it, there is a risk that the outer leg will inadvertently open if the lower end of the center leg is twisted during use as a monopod. As a basic function, there was room for improvement.

Further, the one described in Patent Document 2 has a point-symmetrical structure of 120 degrees in which a cross-section of three leg pipes closed and bundled is divided into three equal parts in the radial direction from the center. It is configured to have the appearance of a leg, but when used as a monopod, the three leg pipes break apart and are easy to expand. Therefore, it is necessary to always hold the leg pipe in a lump, and the basic posture when using a monopod as described above cannot be used to `` hold the camera body with both hands and shoot without taking a monopod. '' There were many problems involved in preventing camera shake as a leg.
Furthermore, Non-Patent Document 1 includes a monopod that can be attached to a tripod by removing the stone bump, a foldable universal stand that can be used as a simple tripod, and a monostand that can be used as either a table tripod or a monopod. It is posted.

  In the process of research and development for pursuing the convenience and usability of a camera monopod in view of the above situation, the present invention provides a tripod as an auxiliary function in the hollow cylindrical body constituting the monopod. It was created based on a completely new concept of `` interior mechanism '', and its intention is to retain the basic functions necessary and sufficient as a conventional monopod, When the camera is used as a camera monopod with improved self-supporting stability, the camera can be switched between a normal monopod use state and a monopod extended with the auxiliary tripod function with a single touch. It is an object of the present invention to provide an auxiliary tripod structure for a monopod that can be easily and without failure, even for beginners, women or seniors who only occasionally take pictures.

  In order to solve the above-mentioned problems, the first technical means adopted by the present invention is to provide stone protrusions at lower portions of support pieces having three arc-shaped cross sections formed by dividing a hollow pipe into three in the longitudinal direction.

Are provided at predetermined intervals.

Next, the assembly of each component according to the present embodiment will be described in detail.
In FIG. 18, first, the outer cylinder 36b is externally fitted as shown in the drawing along the projection 53 along the groove 51 of the inner cylinder 36a to which the support body 41 is fitted and fixed. Then, the sliding rod 39 fitted with the retaining flange portion 39a is inserted into the support body 41, and the first compression coil machine 42 is loosely fitted to the sliding rod 39 from below. Further, in a state where each support leg 6 is inserted into the O-ring 52, the support legs 6 are not illustrated via the insertion holes 6d of the base end 6c between the pivot support portions 45, 45 of the leg support portion 38. Further, the leg support portion 38 is inserted into the slide rod 39 from below through the insertion hole 47.

  Next, the O-ring 52 is fitted and fixed to the inner peripheral edge of the lower end of the inner cylinder 36a, and the second compression coil machine 43 is loosely fitted to the sliding rod 39 protruding downward as shown in FIG. Then, the stay support portions 40 that respectively pivotally support the base portion 9a of the stay 9 on the pivot support portion 40a with a pin (not shown) are screwed and fixed to the female screw portion 39b of the sliding rod 39 via the male screw portion 40b. When the tip 9b is pivotally supported by a pin (not shown) on a pivot 6e formed on the back surface of each support leg 6, the assembly is completed.

  Since the present invention is configured as described above, as shown in FIG. 20 (a), the outer tube 36b is used when the auxiliary tripod function is used in the camera monopod 1 that maintains the normal monopod state. When the inner cylinder 36a is slid and moved downward with respect to the inner cylinder 36a, the locking projections 50 engaged with the locking recesses 38 'of the leg support 38 are shown in FIGS. As shown in the enlarged view of the encircled portion, the locking projection 50 is disengaged from the locking recess 38 ′ by releasing the projection 53 of the outer cylinder 36 b, and the urging force of the first compression coil machine 42 is used to When the leg support portion 38 is pressed and slidably moved in the inner cylinder 36 a and contacts the O-ring 52, the leg support portion 38 is held at the end of the inner cylinder 36 a.

  Then, the urging force of the second compression coil machine 43 held between the lower surface of the leg support portion 38 and the upper surface of the stay support portion 40 is supported through the stay support portion 40 and the stay 9. Acting on the back surface of the leg 6, the supporting legs 6 are opened in three directions as shown in FIG.

  As shown in FIG. 21A, when the outer cylinder 36b is slid toward the support legs 6a from the one end side of the inner cylinder 36a with respect to the opened tripod mechanism 37, the tip of the outer cylinder 36b is obtained. The side inner peripheral surface is in sliding contact with the surface of the support piece 6a, and each support leg 6 gradually changes in the direction of the closed leg against the urging force of the second compression coil machine 43. When the peripheral edge of the outer cylinder 36b comes into contact with the upper surface of the stone protrusion 6b of each support leg 6, as shown by the arrow in FIG. If the outer cylinder 36b is pushed together with the outer cylinder 36b from the lower side to the upper inner cylinder 36a against the urging force of the machines 42 and 43, the support pieces 6a of the tripod mechanism 37 are housed in the inner cylinder 36a so that they are in the original monopod state. It returns and can be used as a normal monopod.
