looking for a tripod head
Feb 20, 2014

I'm looking to buy a tripod head but the last time I bought a tripod was about 30 years ago and with all the new options I have no idea what might be good for me. I think I'm going to be using it primarily to shoot landscapes and for macro work. I'd also like to be able to use a 300mm zoom as well so balance may be an issue. My camera is a Nikon D7100, if that matters.

So I guess my first question is should I be looking for ball heads, geared heads, joystick heads, something else?
