    This one isnt very stable at all, all plastic. I want to replace it with the Giottos M7001 Ballhead:

    even if you could, which I doubt, I wouldn't. you need a decent set of legs too. Bogen 3021 is the bare min

    this is a little offtopic but i just want to put a PSA out. I finally wore the grip plate on my [​IMG] so smooth that it doesnt grip anymore. prob gonna have to send it in. I picked up a 3 way pan tilt floor model for 40 bucks though (simple but effective for panoramic shots which is what i wanted it for anyways) to hold me over.

    the service shop was amazed that i was able to polish that piece in under a year :)
