I sold my old tripod and am looking to get a small, portable, yet quality tripod. I've narrowed it down to the following 2 models: 1. Manfrotto 7301YB (3-Way Head) 2. Manfrotto 7302YB (Ball Head) Both have quality aluminum legs, quick release plates, similar lengths/heights, and other features. I simply cannot decide between the 3-way head and the ball head. I've used a 3-way before and have seen the ball head. Which is better and why? Which should I get? Perhaps you can provide other suggestions. Thanks for the help.
