The Giottos MH7002-630 Ballhead is a single action ballhead suitable for travel use, with a 'snap-in' quick release system that's also got a bubble level right at the plate's location.  It uses a simple single lever to lock and unlock all movement functions, and is rated to comfortably hold equipment weighing up to 11 lbs (5kg).  You can use your SLR camera comfortably with a ~200mm lens.

The MH7002's strong locking lever can be adjusted so that the range of movement between locked and unlocked is wherever you prefer it to be; many heads cannot be adjusted in this way.

          Comments about Giottos MH7002-630 Ballhead with Quick Release:

          I chose this ball head as a companion to my MH 5011 3-way head, since the descriptions indicate they use common QR mounting plates. However, the plate that came with this product is seen to be ever-so-slightly smaller in dimension than my other so-called "identical" plates, which explains why it won't tighten in the MH5011. This product has 2 built-in levels which I need to count on: one of them is nearly true, and the other isn't anywhere close. Bottom line: I am not happy I bought this product.

            I was looking for a decent ball head for my Manfrotto monopod and this is exactly what I needed. Solid build, simple operation, right price.

            Comments about Giottos MH7002-630 Ballhead with Quick Release:

            I love this on my d90 and my d7000. I have used this with my 70-200 2.8, it was just to much for this head to take. However, on my 85mm 1.8 and below this is perfect. I could not be happier.
