Try one when you get a chance. It's too radical for a lot of people, it just doesn't look like a "proper" ball head should. Me, I bought an Epoca.

I tried to Google "Epoca" and got a bunch of non-photo returns. Tried a search on B&H also - no luck. So what is Epoca?

Sorry, try "Canon Epoca", e.g. -

Now I see! Thanks!

It's a big lump of a camera, but the ergonomics worked really well. People were always asking me, "Is that a video camera?", because you hold it like one.

So here's a thought... what would a DSRL look like if it was designed to be held with its bulk resting in the palm (fingers on top, thumb below), rather than being gripped from the side (fingers in front, thumb behind)? Hmm...
