I have a bogen ball head that is decent, but a real PIA for large format so I went out and bought myself a 410 geared head. Great action but way to sloppy. I can move the top of my sinar about 1/2" if I tug on it. Too bad because I really like the action. So the question is whats the best head, besides the $600 jobs. Geared would be great, but I want precision geared. I guess a swiss arca would do , but they are mega bucks ?? I want something very stable and precise. Acually the camera mounted straight to the tripod base is perfect as far as stiffness.
