I have a Slik U212 that I really like and it has a level on the camera mounting pad. Really don't need a ball head for it as it comes with a fitting (quick release post) that screws into the tripod mount on the camera and then you insert it into the camera pad on the tripod and there is a lever that locks the camera to the pad. The center post does swivel. It's very well made also, but it isn't a carbon fiber model.

Nice looking tripod but it doesn't go low enough to the ground for her marco photography.

There is an attachment on one of the legs and I'm pretty sure the center column can be reversed.
