Manfrotto 234RC Tilt Head for Monopods

Drarp, B&H Photo
18 November 2014
  • 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.

Lightweight and Durable

  • Excerpt: I love this head. I use it on a monopod for shooting interiors and it stays out of my way and quickly tilts, which is a huge plus. Highly recommended for still photography!

It simply works.

  • Excerpt: There is no reason to put a ball head on a monopod. This works very well for that application. The quick release plate is easy to get in and out, but there is a locking mechanism that is sturdy once you flip it closed. Tilt action is a breeze to loosen and lock. This does exactly what you think it would.

Hoping for more

  • Excerpt: i was hoping this would be a compact version of my bigger heads with a smooth tilt, but unfortunately it is very stiff and clunky. this is definitely not meant for any type of smooth continuous movement or for video uses.
  • Pros: Compact
  • Cons: Unstable, Weak Construction

I get a bit nervous using this

  • Excerpt: So, I dropped my camera while trying to attach it to this head. Be extra careful and make sure you aren't rushed when you attach your gear to this head. My recommendation would be to screw the plate on your camera first, lock the tilt head in place, and take your time mounting the camera to this head. Seems like a no-brainer process but I just don't want what happened to me to happen to anyone else.
  • Pros: Affordable, PORTABLE
  • Cons: Unstable

Very Sturdy!

20 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I mounted this on my lightweight monopod because I have the same one on my heavy duty monopod and I really like it. It is secure, sturdy, easy to operate, and gives more flexibility and steadiness--even on a monopod.
  • Pros: Secure, Sturdy
  • Cons: Slightly heavy
