Though I am not a pro (yet), I need good equipment for decent prices and this definately was a good buy. I take it everywhere with me. Good quality-I'm very pleased with it.
I have used similar brands like Manfrotto (bulky and heavy), the Vanguard 234 is an alround light weight easy to unfold, versitile and flexible yet stable. I have bought a sony 70-400 zoom lense weighing 1.5kg the body weighs 500 gms. Thats 2 kgs with perfect stability and control. The PH-22 head is amazing, quick and easy to use, pan and tilt to almost all angles, and a quick slip plate for speedy access. I thouroughly reconmend this package to anyone looking for a light weight yet sturdy tripod. I have used this tripod in some very rugged terrain (hard to access places) and it seems that this tripod was made to follow me into those places.
