Good luck!

I have one too, but have never use it for serious work... It will support the camera just fine; However if you try to take long exposures or multiple shots like i was doing for HDR, the images taken with this device will only line up if you're extremely careful (or lucky)!

"Not for heavier gear

Although Joby clearly states the Focus can hold up to 11lbs (5kg), this amount of weight was never even approached in the field testing. This was mainly due to the unfortunate sagging of the legs when just a 4.4lb (2kg) combination of an APS-C camera and 180mm F2.8 macro lens were put on top. The legs could be arranged to hold it up while shooting some interesting macros, but each press of the shutter button or twist of a dial came with a corresponding drop in the overall height of the system.
