Well, maybe I am as I am always hunting down bargains.
I was in a pawn shop a month ago & they had a Manfrotto 190QC (Bogen3001V) with a Manfrotto 352 RC ball head for $79. However, it was missing the quick release plate. After pointing out that it was useless without the plate I was able to negotiate the price down to $50. Henry's here was asking $21+tax for one so I ordered two from China @ the same cost. Got the plates today & they are good quality & lock in good & tight. So I now have tripod, head & two plates for $81.50 taxes included.
