  1. I want a tripod with extension for being able to shoot straight down without having the legs in the shot. I’m looking at this. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=Manfrotto vsnguard pro 263AT&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma&Top+Nav-Search= With it, I need a ball head. I have an old squeeze trigger ball head that I love and I use the RC2 quick release. Have a bunch of the quick releases, don’t want to change to the Arca. I can’t handle ball heads with multiple knobs. I tried, we don’t get along. I ended up frustrated, sour and unhappy. I always get confused about which knob does what, that’s why I’ve stuck with the Manfrotto squeeze heads. You can’t use anything easier to move the head around, and it was invaluable on my monopod shooting birds. But mine is not holding a tilt. It’s flopping sometimes. When I need a precise tilt, I want it to hold it. This is the 2nd one I’ve bought and used over 14 years that eventually developed the same problem. I’m looking at this ball head, but without hands on, I can’t tell how easy/simple/quick it will be to adjust. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/368325-REG/Manfrotto_468MGRC2_468MGRC2_Magnesium_Hydrostatic_Ballhead.html I would appreciate input, suggestions, cheaper but great alternatives. Just keep in mind my need for simple, easy, don’t-have-to-think-about-it adjustments for the ballhead. I think the tripod is cheap enough, but the ballhead above is pricy. Both will be used 90% indoors. I’ll be shooting my Fuji X-T2, probably with the 56mm, 50-140, and the new 80mm macro when it ships. The above equipment should handle that kit fine. Looking forward to some great input, and whether any of you have used either of the above. Like it? Hate it? Pros, cons? Betty
