well, that's not to say its perfect, but it is easier than the ball.

Most ball heads have systems where adjustment in one direction affects the other orientation.

Basically the only thing ball heads have going for them IMO is that they are more compact and offer some advantage in weight compared to pan heads.
these are good points and I have a feeling (I haven't measured this) that its slightly more stable (I can't think why it could be).

thanks for the information (and the positive comment on the image)
