    Hey everybody! Just thought I'd post an update with some good news. MyBogen grip action head that I love ever so much works just beautifully with my Shen-Hao. No sag or anything. Now is this set up going to work in a wind storm? Of course not! But I'm not going to be using it under such conditions anyway. So I'm happy

    Regardless, I sure appreciate everyones input on my ball head issues. Thanks!

    Look at the Bogen 405 or 410 Micro-Gear heads

    These beat any monoball I have ever used.
    No camparison.

Again, the Horseman will stay on the Bogen so I don't need a ballhead to handle it, just the other three cameras.

    So I'd love to hear what you folks are successfully using; maybe even pros and cons (as I've never used a ballhead before).

    p.s. Money is an issue so don't tell me how much you love your $300+ ArcaSwiss (or whatever) 'cause that ain't gonna happen and I'll only be jealous

    The Acratech offers quite a bit of bang for the buck, and makes a good traveling setup.

    Mike, I fully concur with you... I use to use a big Manfrotto ballhead with my 4x5 camera but hated having to work with the "finicky-ness" of the thing. So, I ended up getting rid of it and buying a 410. This model supports up to approximately 11 lbs.

    When I go 8x10 I'll also pick up a 405 (supports up to approximately 15 lbs I believe) as a companion to the 410.

    But, I agree... there's NO comparison!

    Cheers
