    Thumbs up I hear ya!

    I have a selection of tripod heads to choose from ... and it usually depends on what lens is in use.

    The heavy stuff ... yeah, the gimble.

    The 200-500mm or 70-400 ... the grip ball (usually in concert with using the monopod)

    The 70-200 or lighter ... the hydrostatic ball or pan/tilt

    The primes ... under 100mm ... standard ball or pan/tilt

    I can also mount a ball head on the gimble to provide a quick-flop-over for portrait shots.

    The flexibility is the key ... and it is nice to have the selection ... as needed.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
