I am new to video. I bought a tripod a few weeks ago and I like the very steady shots it gives. However, it is a pain to set up so that the bubble is level. My subject can change (the sun goes in, the sheep have disappeared, etc.) while I am still making leg adjustments. I know that a monopod (I have one) or a hand-held shot must be used in many cases, but I want to use the tripod as often as I can. Leg adjustments have to be done acurately especially for pans but also for non-pans. In principle, a ballhead positioned between the tripod top and the fluid head would do away with the need to make leg adjustments because it could allow the bubble to be positioned centrally more quickly.
Sounds good in theory, but is that correct please?
