I'm a bit confused on load capacity and ball heads. From my research, some ball heads such as this one http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...ith_Quick.html have a respectively light weight capacity (15lbs for Kirk BH-3 - rated for an SLR with zooms attached) and is priced at $285. Others, such as this one http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...Ball_Head.html have an outrageously high weight capacity (66lbs for the Induro and priced similarly).
With the Induro, why would anyone ever need a 66 pound weight capacity and how is that even possible with a 1.1lb ball head? Secondly, why such a huge discrepancy between the two? Kirk only makes a few ballheads and their load capacities are no where near Induro. I mean, a Hasselblad with a 50mm lens (which would be my max weight) weighs no more than maybe 5-6 pounds.
What am I missing?
