Hi There.

I think the 332RC2 Is great, but not to use it as recomended! I use it with the grip in line with the lens - excellent. This way any of the so-called Jerkiness that has been talked about is relegated to horizontal positioning, the vertical movment is as smooth as a babies backside! I think anybody worried about straight horizons has all the time in the world to adjust anyway.

I can recommend the 322RC2 outdoors for landscape work which is how I use it (two, actually on different tripods) with a Mamiya 645AFD. Since I don't pan moving objects often I haven't experienced and particular problems hsre.

I use the Manfrotto 458B Neotec tripod and a Arca Swiss B1--I recommend the B1, the 458B has good and bad points: nothing beats the rapid open and closure; legs are sealed so you don't have to worry when in surf or river; the leg greese will get all over you, your clothes, your dog, etc; the legs will eventually get caked up with dust and dirt and the sliding mechanism will slow; I wish it were more steady, but 97% of the time it's good enough. Good luck.
