Manfrotto 234 Swivel Tilt Monopod Head (Replaces 3232) Review

Need a simple monopod head? The Manfrotto 234 Swivel Tilt Monopod Head is a very popular solution. And it doesn't even cost much.

A ball head mounted on a monopod can result in a floppy, hard-to-handle setup. The Manfrotto 234 Swivel Tilt Monopod Head simply has one hinge point. Use your lens' tripod ring or tip the monopod to get the other direction.

Use a stainless bolt, lock washer and nut to mount a Wimberley Quick Release Plate to the Manfrotto 234 Swivel Tilt Monopod Head for a great setup.

Perhaps the biggest weakness of the Manfrotto 234 Swivel Tilt Monopod Head is its rather-light 5.5 lbs capacity rating. Many report loading more weight than this on the 234 with no problems, but be aware of this rating - use your own judgment.

The monopod head adds 9.5 oz to your monopod's weight. I reviewed the Bogen 3232 which has been renamed the Manfrotto 234 Swivel Tilt Monopod Head.
