Ball head vs pan head

4 days 6 hours ago #640244 by Otto F
Do any of you use a pan head?  I was just reading:  https://www.photographytalk.com/beginner-photography-tips/7867-which-is-best-a-ball-head-or-a-pan-head

Scroll down till you see Manfrotto MHXPRO-3W X-Pro, that thing looks pretty slick, but looks kind of like more work (not trying to be lazy).  

I'd like to hear from actual users.  I've bought a new tripod and need to get another ball head or possibly one of these heads.  What do you think of using one?

I use both. A gear head in studio and a ball head on location.

Knowing what you shoot brings you to the proper choice.

Light is free… capturing it is not!
