    I've decided on the ball head type I want to purchase, but there are so many variations. What is the real-world difference between the SP and DP ball head?

    My guess is that for general positioning a SP would be good enough, but for panoramas, the DP would be essential since you wouldn't have to level the actual tripod, only the camera. Am I on the right track?
