Hello,

I will be buying a manfrotto tripod in a couple of weeks because my mickey mouse Velbon cx 440 just doesn't cut it anymore. I really like the feel and sturdyness of the Manfrotto line but my main consideration is the proper head that will work good for me. I'm looking for suggestions here, my main subject is nature, birds mostly in the winter and need something that will pan nice and smooth up/down and side to side with one hand on the camera but also will be movement free when stopped and the shutter is released unlike my velbon which has movement. I'm thinking of a ball mount head but i'm afraid that the camera rig might fall over and get damaged if I let go and forget to tighten it. If any one has any suggestions that uses Manfrotto and similar photography please let me know.

Thank you,

RY
