Is exactly what I thought it would be

GC, WEX

  • Summary: A fine thing to carry instead of a three way head as its both far smaller and quicker to use on my old 500 series tripod. With modern artificial horizons in DSLRs it saves the expense and trouble of buying a more complicated head with a built in spirit level.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

Great Ball Head for Manfrotto Monopods

Bernie C, Henrys
12 July 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the Manfrotto 560B Fluid Video Monopod equipped with a 234RC Swivel/Tilt Head with Quick Release a couple of years ago. I soon found the 234RC Head to be of limited use when using larger/heavier lenses.
