Summary: This was from Manfrotto so I thought that the metal would be a little more rigid. It seems that it would be easily bent. This does on the other hand make it very light so it is easy to take hiking. I needed it for wedding so that my assistant could hold the flash where it needs to be rather then setup a stand. It works for me we will see this summer how well it does.
Summary: I use this with my Nikon D90, and find it plenty strong for situations where a tripod is not allowed or just too clumsy to tote. Probably not strong enough to lift the side of your Hummer to change a tire, but to stabilize any camera you can lift, it should be fine. I think weight vs strength ratio is perfect, unless you want to spend $$$ for carbon fiber. Others mentioned the strap tends to slip, which I found to be true as well.
Summary: this thing comes with a 1/4 screw. if you have an old head, with a 3/8 thread, if you dont have a 1/4-20 to 3/8-16 adapter or bushing, you have to google that and buy one elsewhere. my manfrotto tripod comes with a 3/8 screw. the 234c head recommended has a 3/8 screw hole but it comes with the bushing. none of this is clear from the amazon descriptions. i bought a bushing from elsewhere to fit my old head. they are about $15 with shipping.
Summary: I've been using tri and monopods that I had purchased for use with SLR and DSLR cameras. While these are extremely sturdy there is a weight and size penalty. This little Manfrotto monopod is very light, but remarkably robust. I've used it quite a bit with my superzoom digicam, as well as a DSLR, and it holds up just fine. I recommend it highly.
