Like many I’m attracted to technology and gadgets, although, also like others I try not to buy everything. However, the time comes when my bank account gives way and I use St Amazon or St MasterCard to get some ‘bright shiny thing’.
This post is about one of my recent purchases.
I’m sure I’m not the only one to have bought more bags, tripods and tripod heads, than I really need. It seems every photographer must go through the process of first buying cheap things, then more expensive but still imperfect things, until finally buying the right thing.
The story in this post is about ballheads and my latest purchase.
My first ballhead was a very cheap and poor quality one that came with my first (aluminium) tripod. That was several years ago.
My first real ballhead, and one I still use, was my AcraTech GPS: AcraTech GPS
Last week, after much reading of reviews, my new Feisol CB-70D arrived: CB-70D
From my personal experience the Feisol brand represent one of the best value-for-money suppliers of high end ‘bright shiny things’.
