This first image is taken with the Samyang 14mm lens. I love this lens!
This was taken with a Sigma 50mm F/1.4
I have a Bilora 1157 Professional.
It is very usefull for taking videos and cheap.
I can recommend that one.
I'm also using this one and it is great for that price. I can recommend it, too.
Last year I bought a second hand Manfrotto #3265 (it also says #222 on the grip, and "Made in Italy").
Mine is a bit like the 322RC2, but the camera sits on top of the grip handle (rather than on the side of it).
I got it for a great price, and I used it a bit in person before I bought it (from Gumtree, the Australia free online selling / buying community). So I was happy with that, as it works well and the price was much less than new. It sits on my tripod which I bought about 1.5 years before.
The main reason I wanted to get a ball-head was for macros and 'the quick release possibility'. It complements my existing 3-way Manfrotto head very well.
Hope you'll get a good outcome with your decision and purchase.
Thanks! Used a 5d iii with at 24-105. Each was a made with 7 shots from -3 to +3 EV shot in RAW and compiled in Photomatix. I got really lucky with the weather. 15 minutes before both shots, the sun was hidden behind clouds and the reflection off the lake wasn't nearly as impressive.
