I received my camera in the mail yesterday (it's a calumet c400 monorail) and the 3221 holds it... not rocksteady, but steady. It seems quite sturdy if only one leg set is extended but not the 2nd; I'm having to stoop a little bit, but it's not bad. I'm using a 3232 head on it, it's the head that only moves forwards and backwards and it works quite well. Hopefully, I'll be able to get a new tripod in a month or 2 if this one doesn't work out.
