    Being using Markin since day one no problem. Only problem is the transport cost to get one is quite high.
    Warmest Regards

    I asked before, CP does not bring in the Z1 with the Quick Set Device "Flip-Lock", so you have to order online.

    Hmm.... no one using the Acratech Ultimate Ballhead?...

    http://acratech.net/

    been using tat for a long while and the only complaint is that it doesn't have a tension knob. Which... makes the V2 very tempting...

    I also got the RRS, but the BH-55, again the lever clamp and L plate system wins out over the rest.

    The RRS series ballhead is short for a reason, it saves space, and wasn't really intended to flop over to the vertical postion most of the time (we use L plates for that).

    But it's pretty short, so if you have a tripod mount that's very wide u'll have problems using it in the vertical position...

    We buy directly.

    www.reallyrightstuff.com

    They believe in direct sales and do not have distributors.

    Haha, very true. The reason behind is that probably 1% current Singaporean buy online, but I will definite see a big in crease in very near future as buying online is fuss free and so easy nowadays.

    Just remember to buy from reputable merchants like B&H etc.
