    great review! i just went on b&h and the price is not a killer for a good ballhead. Perfect timing because I’m in the market for one (currently I’m using the one that comes with the tripod -embarrassing!) 😉

    thanks again

    Mag,

    Just to clarify, you went to B&H and found it was not a killer price or it was a good price? I think the price is somewhere around $350. A good ball head is not cheap. The Arca-Swiss will run you $450 to well over $500 and a Manfrotto you can get for less than $300. But let me remind you, you get what you pay for. And with the Acratech you get more! If $350 is too much then look at the other ball heads in the Arcatech line.

    Good & informative review. Didn’t realize there were so many birds singing when I was there though.. No wonder you hook up a long telephoto on the 5D.

    Funny. That was in my yard and the long lens was to just show the balance. But then, I think you knew that. So let’s go try out this head somewhere on the island!

    Mike, I trek all throughout the Himalaya. If it is helpful, let me say, get this ball head! It is just what you described.
