I am beginning to suspect the ball head because it is not a true gimbal head.

A ball head is fine for landscapes.... I stay more in the f/5.6 to f/8 region, and use stacking or a tilt-and-shift for more depth of field.

I use a RRS ball head, mirror lockup, and a remote release when taking landscapes. That seems to be enough on the support and physical steadiness side. I am sure your ball head is capable of good results, too, from your description, unless it's broken in some way.

Ok thanks.  I am using Capture NX2 for post processing so stacking is not an option.  Might be time to learn new software. (At least I'm shooting RAW).  I am mostly happy with the lenses I own so I will have to be happy with the smaller print sizes and less cropping.
