    Yes, you can. But depends on the lens you are using. Ball heads are not the most comfortable to use for photography. Gimbal heads or fluid heads are much better and preferred.

      Kindly suggest the best tripod,Gimbal head, Fluid head for wildlife photography. I have gone through the course and you have provided guidance on this. But if we have a list of tools to use will be good for novice like myself.Thanks

    I chose ball head as it’s easy to carry around and takes lesser space in my luggage when travelling. While shooting you have to be very careful with the gear and you have to lock the head if you are taking your hands away. So it has very less flexibility. It works for me as I use it only for my weekend morning photo shoots which last just couple of hours and I take my camera off the tripod most of the time as I keep moving around to shoot birds in flight,

    As Sudhir sir said, gimbal and fluid offer great flexibility.

    Personally, I am thinking to get one of the other ones when I plan to travel to places like Bharatpur, etc for bird photography where ball head will be a pain to shoot for a long duration.
