I am in the market for a ball head or adapter for a ball head. I really like the RRS ball heads and adapters but they are a bit out of my range new. Can anyone here recommend or share with me what they use and help me find a good solution that is somewhat economical.

What's your price range and how much weight?

I actually want it to be able to support my Bronica Sq-Ai as well as my D200's if that helps. Unfortunately I am looking at $200 or less. I cant do more than that. As usual my hunt will probably be for anything used since the new equipment is more than I can afford .

What do you mean by "Acra Swiss ballhead or Adapter Plate "?
Is it a ballhead with a Arca-Swiss Quick Release plate that you like to have?

The Sunwayfoto FB-44 is probably the cheapest nice head for two bills:

If you can save a little longer, you can help support the USA by buying the Acratech Ultimate Ballhead. With clamp it is $290 and is one of the best for a lower price.

If you need budget plates, the Sunwayfoto plates are hard to beat (Amazon 'n Fleabay). I use several of them and they're excellent.

However, if you already have a decent ball head, but no Arca clamp, you only need to spend $50 to $80 for a good clamp (remove disk and screw on ball stem).
