    just replaced my old rusted and chunky manfrotto ballhead with a smaller joby 5k. i was in a super rush and didnt notice it hasnt got bubblers with it but then i was thinking i have virtual level in camera so why would i need 1 even though used it previously.
    would the only thing be lacking is tilt? i only recently found out some issues i was having doing some landscape shots tilt was off and i was able to correct it and stop building distortions. i dont think any EVF should tilt only via visual inspection though?

    For quick setup reference, perhaps, else not really...

    Am I reading correctly, though, that the Joby head is compatible with Manfrotto legs?

    Not sure if it's compatible with manfrotto legs as I had upgraded to gitzo legs but kept my originalanfrotto ball head and guy at shop said this ball head will work on the gitzo I have.

    Just sorting my shut out before I go to NZ next week :)

    Gitzo and Manfrotto have common thread size; suppose that's an indirect yes - gtk.

    Good luck in NZ; look forward to some cracker shots.

    Don't even need an EVF, DSLR's have virtual levels also.
