Anyone have any suggestions for my first ballhead, ideally nice and cheap? At the moment I'm using a GorillaPod SLR which doesn't move much once the camera is on so I'd like a cheapish ballhead to work with this.

Eventually I'll get a tripod/monopod so if it can go onto this as well that would be great.

I'm in the UK btw.

Thx!

Depends on your definition of cheap. Here is a review on Markins ballheads. You will also see other brands mentioned that can lead your research further.

Ended up getting a Manfrotto 484RC2 for £32 delivered. Goes really well with my GorillaPod SLR Zoom and A200.

VERY happy :D
