Currently using a Canon GL2, which is a joke on this tripod. We got this model in preparation for a camera upgrade, which will be far more substantial. I have no doubts about the capability of the Sachtler 1011 to be able to easily hold a far greater load than we are giving it now. The head is very smooth, the adjustments are simple and easy to use, and the illuminated bubble level is a very nice touch. After a couple of weeks of use, I am quite pleased with the overall operation of the product.
