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-CA...ryZ30095QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

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.

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.
