"RE: Tripod Ballheads. "

Wally,

can I ask you a rhetorical question? What make is your car? How many manufacturers you changed in your driver's life? Same thing with the ballheads, I guess.

I'm sure something new and better is being manufactured "right at this moment", but I'm not gambling with my money - whatever works for many experienced photographers should (at list hypothetically) work for me. So far this approach works wonderfully for me. I have only 3 items that I bough brand new - D7000 body, Gitzo monopod and Sigma 50-500 lens. EVERYTHING else, including 6 high-end nikon lenses, 2 markins ballhead, gitzo tripod (and more) I bough used, knowing it will work jus as good as i would buy it brand new, and I might resell that equipment later, recovering most of my money. And the only reason I can do that - because years and years of available knowledge (history if you wish) of usage. Will I resell a photoclamp item at the same price I bought it if it would be out of warranty? I don't know, but my guess would be "NO".


Best regards,
Vlad
