Yeah, the one I use mostly is a small one (I think the model is #410) 
from Manfrotto. Works fine for the 35mm size and MF I use. A little 
too weak for LF, but there I have better solutions in any case.

The geared head and an electronic level let me set up shots very 
quickly. The head is rather heavy for it's capacity, but I usually 
use it on a fairly heavy Gitzo anyways so it doesn't matter.
