I am currently rotating on the ball head directly. Maybe that would be better and more accurate.

The Dorr one comes with both options as standard, you can rotate the whole head or just the clamp. The benefit of the latter is that you don't need the tripod to be perfectly level, just the clamp via the ball adjustment.

The whole lot weights 275g
