Thank you, Erik, for your post. It was helpful. I'm guessing the
following is one of the things you wanted me to see in the User
Guidelines: "don't rely on the sense of humour" - point taken, I just
did not want to type what I was really thinking. ;-)
Guide also says:

I have tried to contact them, but have not heard anything in over a week.

I have read this page and many others on pano heads._
I also had a question about the Nodal Ninja pano head:
It seems so much easier to use one of the Angno head (MrotatorA) rather
than use the
Nodal Ninja. The Ninja works somewhat like the Panosaurus and is a lot
of trouble to set up; both in time and effort.
It is very difficult for me to believe that someone can set up a camera
with the Ninja in 15 seconds. It takes me that long to get the
Panosaurus out and unbox the Fisheye NIKON FC-E8 to put on the camera. I
guess I really need a few leasons in how to assemble all these parts.
