Getting ready to buy a ball head for the first time and am looking for some advice on which to buy. I will be using it mostly for portrait stuff with my 1DX and at the most a 70-200 II. I have a 300 but I doubt I will ever have be using it when mounted on the tripod.
I have looked at the RRS, Gitzo and Kirk stuff with the understanding that they are at the top of the food chain. I have also looked at others that are much less expensive. I know lower cost does not always translate into poor quality but the probability of poor quality is always higher. I don't want to break the bank but I do want to buy something of quality.
The other thing that I am slightly confused about is the QR systems. I know the Manfrotto plates/L brackets are not interchangeable with RRS, etc., but are Gitzo, RRS and Arca Swiss interchangeable between each other?
