Guys - you are right of course - I don't need a ball head, just a monopod head with quick release plate.

Any recommendations as to which monopod ? I'm currently looking at a Giotto's GTMML 3290B

The Giotto 3290B is the one I have. Had it for a couple of months now and it is great. It's strong, sturdy, relatively light and has plenty of height for when it's needed.

As a head, I have a Manfrotto Monopod 234 Quick Release Tilt Head:


And by the way, I also use the Sony 70-400 GII lens on my A99 so the Giotto can comfortably handle this combination with the Manfrotto Tilt Head and RC234 QR plate.
