Why Stock Photos?
The short answer is that we use stock photos on some listings to save us time and to save you money. The longer answer is that we love to take photos of each and every lens, camera, and accessory, but doing so takes a lot of time and makes it difficult to get everything listed. So, we decided to compromise: take gorgeous photos of some things and charge a little more for them, and use stock photos for other items and charge a little less for those, all else equal.
The items listed here were tested thoroughly by our trained technicians. If they observed any significant flaws, you’ll see them detailed above. If the items listed here are exceptionally awesome, you’ll see that noted above too. Regardless, please remember this is a used item and it’s bound to have at least a microscopic imperfection.
If you're interested in purchasing an item with specific photos and ratings, we don’t blame you one bit. Please visit one of our Exposed! listings (if available), usually marked with a green badge. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.

The Novoflex MagicBall Ballhead
The Novoflex MagicBall Ballhead is sort of an upside-down ballhead: The base has a 3/8 inch female thread to mount to a monopod or tripod and a 1/4" top screw to mount to a camera or lens tripod mount. It does NOT have a quick release plate, the lens or camera is mounted and dismounted by the thumb wheel. It supports up to 22 lbs.
We don’t consider it particularly a ballhead replacement, although it certainly can be used as one. But it does makes a superb and extremely flexible head for a monopod, giving you a lot more flexibility than simply tilting this way and that, and the handle (which is also the friction-lock lever) gives exquisite control. The handle makes it much easier to control on a monopod than a standard ballhead.OK, we also like it because it looks really cool. Chances are you’ll be the only photographer around to have one. But the more we use it around here the more we like it.
