The Benro A300-EX's ball-head snapped
just short before the 1 year-warranty;
but the distributor insist it was my fault
No more Benro (China) !!!
Here comes my new friend Manfrotto (Italy)
a longer lasting relationship
I got the 498rc2 for the same price as the 486rc2,
it is a little bigger with the panning dial at the bottom
of the ball-head ...
the 190cxpro4 is carbon fibre,
it really does feel light without the ball-head on ...
