I don't think I'm brave enough to put a Hasselblad on a drone but thanks for the great shots.

I find ball heads superior in their simplicity and rock solid hold. Plus no long arms to catch on things. I have a Cambo [mage in Holland for Calumet] medium format rated ball head that works beautifully with my Nikon gear [even long heavy lenses].

A small footprint is just convenient for me.

I hope you carry a fresh spare? The 1st thing I get with a new camera body is two battery's.

My D7500 will need the square electric connector [MC-DC2] Thanks for the info.

I have an older Nikon remote control that will work with my new body but I don't like using it much.

The Camera / The Negative / The Print by Ansel Adams is the holy bible of photography for me. 

I used his zone system with transparency film substituting 1/2 stops to make a full 10 stop zone system. It worked flawlessly.

I learned what a mid tone was and carried gray cards to help nail it.

Back then slide or transparency film had an exposure latitude of 5 stops while print film had 10.
