/ Tripod head recommendations?
Anyone able to recommend a fairly light head that doesn't creep with a D3 on it and doesn't cost an arm?
How heavy is a D3 (what lens do you have on it)
I like my Manfrotto 352RC but I'll take a guess that it is below spec for you. But it's a starting point. Fairly light, nice QR
Decent ball-heads are pricey, doesn't seem to be much of a way round it. I've got a Gitzo GH2780QR, which I managed to get, plus an arca adaptor, for under £250. Its not perfect but its pretty good, the drag control is very good and there is no creep.
In my experience creep is often due to the connection to the camera, not the ball itself, so its worth getting that sorted first.
Cheers for the tip, I'll take a look.
