I am planning on getting a monopod and head.

The Jessops basic ball head took my liking, but I don't think it will take the weight. Does anyone know of any well priced heads that would be suitable to hold the 500D with kit lens or similar?

Canon EOS 500D
Lenses: EFS 18-55mm IS, EF 50mm F/1.8 II

Hi @canon 550D.

I have (only) just bought the Jessops BH-40 ball head (possibly the next model up from the one you looked at) from Jessops to use with my old no-brand monopod and Pentax K-x with 55-300mm zoom.

It seems (so far) to be fine and solid. For the money (£14.35 - if you order on line to collect instore and use TRIPODS10 10% off voucher) I'm quite happy :) . In fact, I think that it has shown up the monopod and I'll be looking to upgrade to something like the Manfrotto 680b :roll: .

Pentax k-30 and k-x with DAL 18-55mm and DAL 55-300mm, Tamron 18-50mm and Camera Labs Straps.....hang on, where's my towel?
