    Hi all,

    As the title suggests I’m looking for a head to fit on my Manfrotto BeFree tripod which is good for shooting panoramas. The head supplied with the tripod is great for general use, but the screw which loosens to allow horizontal movement also loosens the ball so the camera drops. This obviously makes accurate panoramas next to impossible!

    It will have to support a reasonable amount of weight as I’ll be putting a 70-200GM and Sony A7RIII on it amongst other things, but that combo would be its biggest challenge. In terms of budget, I don’t want to go TOO nuts if I can help it, but at the same time I’ve learned from prior experience that buying mega cheap can be a total waste of time. So let’s just say I could stretch to reassuringly expensive if I had to, but I’m not made of money

    Can anybody help me out?
