That looks good.
They had always been missing a monopod support system.

ozboyerp - I would say between 25-30 members who contribute to the forum on a regular basis, have purchased from RRS. Very light weight, extremely well made, and of course you pay a preminum. The best part at the moment is the Exchange Rate: USD to AUD is very favourable for us :)

Thanks Fozzie,

No probs for the premium, I've been waiting a while but now ready to get a great tripod and head.

I'll have a serious look at it.

YOu would probably do better with a ball head for that use.

This head is designed for monopods. All you need is a tilt adjust on these as you swivel the entire stick for rotation.

Also, when pricing, remember that you need the head, clamp AND plate.

I have a BH-40 with LR Clamp mounted on a Gitzo 2540EX; and L Plate on the camera. Incredibly versatile. I love it. But oh the wallet nerves!

I was but 1(No) click away from finalising this order.

- Gitzo GM5541 monopod (imported from Nikonians USA)
- MH-01 RRS® Hi-Capacity Monopod Head (imported from RRS USA)

But with the credit card already maxed out, and the cricket season still at least 3 months away I held off.
Do I really need a tilt head capability at 420mm (DX) I asked myself ? (maybe)
Was there anything intrinsicly wrong with the Manfrotto 682B that I already owned. (not really)

So I did't.
D300, D200, (D70 - now with daughter) and heaps of Nikon stuff.

Surely that's two clicks: 1 for each order :twisted: & that assumes you use keytrokes to change web pages :lol:

Have just placed my order for the MH-01, the Manfrotto 3232 unit was just not capable with my D300 & 200-400VR.
The MH-01 will be just what's required for this heavy combo.
Can't do much about the lousy exc. rate however. :roll:
