Re: Ball Head

I would second mike_j's opinion. I too have a Tristar pistol grip and it's very steady. Mine only had a standard camera screw on the top, so I put a quick release plate on top of it - a Giotto 642! They sell the QRPs separately as well as with a ball-head. Their Series II have an additional friction control which helps stability. I don't think you'd find them a problem, but I find the pistol solution easier to use.

BTW, the 642 QRP's tripod screw is set in a channel, so the video pin can easily be aligned on your camera and gives you a bit more grip in portrait format.
