Are there Chinese "copies" of Bogen?
3 months ago
Hi, I picked up a head used at a Camera shop outside Santa Fe a couple years ago, for the day when I got a "real" camera. Now I am trying to identify it, and it looks exactly like this:
except that it has no writing or logo anywhere, no stamped in name, the base and quick release and plate are all black, the pad on the release plate is black rubber, not cork, on mine. It does, however, have a white sticker with black writing, "Made in China." Since lots of good brands make their stuff in China I did not know whether this might be conclusive.
The movements, locking, and controls all feel great to me, a novice who does not have it on a tripod yet. I don't recall what I paid but it was on the order of $75 I think. I like it, and don't plan to get rid of it, but just would like to know what it is.
You're as happy as you think you are.
