Well I did a bit of searching on this site on what some have recommended for tripods, heads, & camera straps and read all the spec's on the manufactures sites. And here is what I order this morning, I hope we made good choices ;)

Thanks Paul, well I have never used a ball head before so I though I would give it a try.

I use that ball-head on my Giottas tripod (the equivalent of the Manny 190XPROB I think) and it is great. Better than a pan and tilt head in my view.

The xprob 190 and ball head is a good set up and built well, mines has survived some falls without a scratch. The xprob can get down pretty low so its fun having a fiddle to see new angles you can shoot from. The head is good and if you keep adding a little lubricant it is very smooth with pressure applyed. I just rub some vasaline in every few weeks and it gets rid of any sticking with it half locked.

Good kit enjoy
