Hi all, I've been using NN3 MKII for a while and it works really well.

Recently, in an accident, my tripod fell to the ground with the NN3 mounted on it (good thing I've already removed my camera). Upon checking, I noticed that the lower rail is bent, probably due to impact on the ground (Pls see attached image).

I was wondering if I can still use the NN3 effectively. If I align the pano head based on the spirit level on NN3 (which is close to the rotating knob), the camera would be tilted (due to the lower rail bent). Will the rotation about the nodal point still be effective? Is there likely to have parallax problems when I take panoramic photos? Is there any way to counter this deviation?

Thank you all for your input & comments.
