I'm looking to replace my tripod and I'm considering a Manfrotto with a separate head. My question is: is a ball or a 3-way head best for aviation photography? The particular situation I have in mind is where you need to pan left to right and tilt up and down to get different subjects from the same spot, while remaining level with the horizon. Ball heads are cheaper and seem to offer greater ease of movement, but would it mean having to realign with the horizon every time you tilt or pan? Or is this something that sounds more of a problem in theory than in practice? Grateful for advice.
