    There is an ebay seller based in US called "amvona". They have many Manfrotto-like products. For 3-way pan-tilt head check out the following:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/PROFESSIONAL-CAM...QQcmdZViewItem

    The seller puts out 1 unit for no-reserve auction everyday. I have seen closing prices that range from US$3 (!!!) to US$30. Shipping cost to Singapore is US$26+ via US Postal Service.

    If you have the time and patience you can get a really good deal.

    I managed to get one for US$6.50, with US$9.99 shipping in US. The head worked well for my D1x. I think the design is very similar to Bogen/Manfrotto 3030 with quick release.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    You might want to check Manfrotto 115 3D Super Junior Head (a.k.a. 3028) when you go to Cathay Photo. I bought one overseas almost 10 years ago and it is still working fine. I do not know how much it currently sells for in Singapore. I bought mine for about USD30 back then.

    I know for sure that they carry Manfrotto and Gitzo. But I think they also carry a few others. Go to the PP store. There are more selections there.

    goto the PP one. Bigger selection IMO.
    Look here for a 141RC head.
