Can somebody tell me the advantage of a ballhead over a panhead. I just purchased my first tripod which comes with a panhead, but would like to know if it's advantageous to get a ballhead as well. I'm new to this equipment end of photography. Thanks.
Because I have limited finances and can't afford Gitzo right now, here's what I just purchased for my Canon EOS 20D and EF-S 17-85mm lens. I did get a ballhead:http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh....&is=REGhttp://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh....igation
I wanted something lightweight, yet sturdy.
