Hey guys. I've decided to get a Manfrotto 680B 4sect monopod. With my 70-200, I don't really need a head, because it has the tripod ring. However, with my shorter lenses, I'll definitely want a head, so here's my question.
Should I be looking for a tilt head, or will a ballhead be better? Is the 488RC2 from manfrotto a good head? I see the photograph, and there's this separate "ball lock" knob at the side. Is that tension control? If it is, my problem is solved, because while I want the Markins Q3, I can't possibly afford that plus the different arca swiss plates in the near future.
Oh, S$105 for the Manfrotto 680B monopod is the average price, right? Quoted by John3:16. How much is the 488RC2 new? S$150? Better to buy from CP or John3:16?
