Five things to look out for

1

With a hefty full-frame body and a long lens, you’ll want a ball head to be stiffer than with a mini mir­ror­less setup.

2

Some balls can stick, re­sult­ing in jerky move­ment. A qual­ity ball coat­ing and socket lin­ing should help.

3

Lock­ing knobs that aren’t grippy enough can yield un­wanted move­ment. Rub­ber knob coat­ings help.

4

The Arca-Swiss quick-re­lease mount­ing stan­dard is great for cross-com­pat­i­bil­ity with other tri­pod heads.

5

Travel tripods that close with their legs flipped back around the head re­quire a slim­line ball hous­ing.
