I'm a bit miffed really. I've been researching Pano heads for a while and decided on the Nodal Ninja. Just out of curiosity, I tossed "nodal" into ebay and found a new NN3 not far away in Australia.
It sold for nearly new price!
And I got up at 5 in the morning to bid on it. There were three people throwing bids in in the last two seconds or less.
Oh well. Guess I'll get a brand new one at some point. The competition is a good way of tossing fate into the bargain.
