I have been using Manfrotto 190Pro + 486RC2 ball head for a year.
It works perfectly with my D70s + 18-70mm kit lens.
But, when I tried to put the D70s + AFS 300mm f/4 + 2x Converter
on this tripod setup, I find the the ball head tends to creep ( drift from the locking postion ).
So bad that I have to aim off from the subject when I lock it, and hopefully it settled at my intended subject .
I am looking for a better ball head or others tripod head for my current setup.
I've done some search and found that there are some very good brand such as Wimberley,
Arca-Swiss B1, Kirk BH-1, Markins M-10 etc. But these tripod head are very expensive and beyond my budget.
Any recommdation ?
Anyone tried the Giottos or Benro ballhead and have a good model to recommend ?
My budget would be around $200 plus minus.
Thanks in advance.
