Excerpt: I bought this to use instead of the ball head I had on my Manfroto monopod. The ball head actually offers too much movement for a monopod so I likes the idea of something that only tilts up and down. It's also a lot lighter than my ball head. The unit works great and easily supports the weight of my A77ii and Tamron 150-600.
Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: I use a monopod a lot for sports and other low light situations. The Manfrotto 234RC Tilt Head is great as it is light weight, reasonably priced and just does the job well without a lot of bulk. This tilt head does all one needs for a monopod.
Excerpt: The Maonfrotto 234C Tilt Head for Monopods, with quick release is just what it should be - solid and smooth operating. It does its job without calling attention to itself, allowing you to focus on the subject at hand.
Excerpt: The best way to quickly fasten your camera with long lens to a monopod. Be sure and attach your quick release plate to the lens mount not the camera mount. Your kit will balance better and you will have the best control over the tilt function of the head; use the lens mount to change between landscape and portrait formats.
Excerpt: Great head, the only comment I have is related to the arrows on the bottom of the quick release plate, when I lined them up as shown, the tilt adjustment knob is on the wrong side for me (I hold the camera with my right hand but the the tilt knob is also on the right side, very awkward) I called Manfrotto and they told me that for my application it's OK to mount the plate on the camera with the arrows pointing away from the lens, this puts the tilt knob on the left side.
Excerpt: I use it on my Manfrotto MM294C4 carbon fiber monopod for a light-weight support system. Cast aluminum, made in Italy. It is 63.5mm (2.5") high and the base is 38mm (1.5") in diameter. The brass safety catch can be locked in either the engaged or the disengaged position. The tilt locking mechanism clamps smoothly and securely. Comes with a 1/4-20 to 3/8-16 thread adapter. Not as versatile as a ball head but lighter and more compact. Highly recommended.
