Well a ball head can be used to shoot static objects as well, I don't see how it is less versatile than a 3 way head. The added advantage is that it can be used to shoot action shots as well. I can't imagine a situation where my model have to wait while i adjust the 3 knobs to get into the right position. Just like you should get a good sturdy tripod, if you ever only use one head, it had to be a ballhead.Originally posted by TME
That's it bud! I usually use the tripod to shoot still objects. family potraits, potraits of individuals and the odd scenery around. Wan to attempt night shots when I have more time in 2 weeks itme! No action shots from tripod though.
