Ball Head Recommendation
Mar 13, 2013

I am a pro photographer and I have been using an embarrassingly cheap Manfrotto ball head forever.  I'm tired of the creep when I shoot a vertical and I want something that works without costing more than some camera bodies.  I've been shopping around on websites and I'm thoroughly confused by some of the offerings from Manfrotto.  There seem to be dozens and about five models with not more than $20 difference between them.  I made some phone calls to try to clear up some of this confusion, but I'm not sure I'm any better off.  I would like to hear from someone who owns something are really knows about moderately prices ball heads.  Also, which models use non-creep quick release plates that stay on the cameras and long lenses permanently? BTW, I never take my gear out on hikes or camping etc.  All commercial/ location/ architecture etc.  Thanks in advance.
