Tripod Ballhead for D4/D800e
Jul 31, 2012

I have a gitzo 1521 and want to get a new ballhead. I bought a gitzo ballhead GH1780QR.

I like that it has levels on it (so i know if my setup is level) but otherwise I find I am not using the tripod much. I think it must be the ballhead and my inability to use it properly.

Can anyone recommend a ballhead for d4/d800e? the lenses i use the most are 12-24, 24-70, 70-200

also, just as important is the plate that goes between the ballhead and the camera. I want one that will mate firmly to a d4/d800e. The one I have screws the plate onto the bottom of the camera but it can still twist (unless you make it ridiculously tight?) do they sell plates tailored to d4/d800e specifically that address this issue?

thanks for your help
