    After some good feedback on this( and DVinfonet) board, and doing some
    research, I'm planning to get the Bogen 532 ART tripod, and the new 519 head. I
    can't find the 519 anywhere...It's a new model.
    Anybody know of one in stock someplace?
    Thanks

    Looks like it has elements of the Vinten Vision heads.

    Hey Bruce,

    You're right. I went back to Markertek's web site and clicked Add to Cart
    on it and it says it's coming in and will ship within 5 days.

    I played with the 519 at a trade show and liked it a lot. The heads are
    manufactured in Italy by Manfrotto. I was told last month that they were "on
    the boat" and due to arrive and distribute on the US East Coast sometime in
    August. So they should be here soon.

    There's a good reason heads from Bogen, Gitzo, Vinten and others have
    similarities. They are all owned by the same company. Interestingly, same
    goes now for Sachtler, O'Conner, Anton/Bauer, Aspen and others.

    Thanks, Mitch. I'm going with the Bogen 532ART Sticks, and the 519 head as soon
    as it comes in somewhere.
