Battle of the titans: Top ball heads tested

My “big” ballhead of choice has been the Gitzo GH3780 for the last years.

Pros: Super smooth and fine paced ball movements, one of the best in the market. Insane locking power and load capacity, relatively light weight, big nice ball lock.

Cons: Awkward QR quick release system needs to be replaced by Wimberley C-12 or Sunwayfoto clamp, or screw on clamp (I use a RRS PCL). I don’t like handling of the friction lock, but it is on par with many other similar implementations. It’s not the best for the Sidekick, if that counts for you.

As with all ballheads in this class, I think it’s a matter of personal preferences, if you like it or not.
