    Head for Monopod.

    I swapped some unused gear for a nice Manfrotto monopod.The head a rigged up is top heavy and awkward to use.
    My search turned up a Manfrotto 234 head from Henry's Canada listed at a nice price ($30.00+ shipping).
    Any users? How do you like it?

    Thanks

    I use one, most often with my Canon 30D. It's a very good lightweight option. IMO, a monopod head doesn't need to be complicated since you have so much freedom of movement. This one is "just right".

    I didn't think too much about it, just grabbed the first likely one from my supplier, but it has been good with a monopod (Manfrotto 482 miniball):

    The 234 is just ace. The quick release version (234RC) is also an excellent piece. I use them on my Manfrotto ART134 monopod when I need to stablise one of the bigger SLRs. Remarkably inexpensive for the engineering quality.
