Need Expert Help / Advice on which Ball Head on Manfrotto 3021 Tripod will be good
I would appreciate your feed back, as I am new in photography & I am going to join photography college this summer.
I recently during thanks giving purchased Canon T4i (18-55) + (55-250mm) lens & got a used Manfrotto 3021 Tripod.
I would seek expert advice on which ball head should I buy which would suit my Canon T4i camera + Manfrotto 3021 Tripod, (currently T4i cannot fit 3021 tripod directly), please give me best 3 options starting with the 1st choice, as I do intend to save some money for my photography course too, so I am looking about a average / normal expense & not very high cash out.
Also I would like to know from where (online) can I buy the ball head, either a new or a used one, as I am just starting my life in photography world.
Thank you in advance to all of you for your time in reading the post & reverting back.
The Manfrotto 496RC2 Compact Ball Head with 200PL-14 QR Plate might serve you well, and at $66.57 fits your budget, too. (See it, and others, at bhphotovideo.com.) Not for heavy telephoto/zooms, though.
In addition to answers here why don't you give B&H a call and ask them. They are very familiar with their equipment and what's compatible with what and how much it all costs and specs like weight, use, etc..... www.bhphotovideo.com.
I'd highly recommend Really Right Stuff ball heads but they are really expensive (they are the best tho I think). Plus the plates for camera are camera-specific so if you plan to upgrade it gets even more costly.
