    I wonder what the price would be like?

    Looks like an exact copy of the Arca head. hmmm.

    Unfortunately it doesn't look like they've yet taken the opportunity to equip it with adjustment knobs any bigger than those on the AS.

    Despite the ethical considerations I have to say I might consider one if the price was right (<$400) and the quality was reasonable. It does seem a shame to see someone's design work so blatantly ripped-off though.

    These guys in Toronto are selling ballheads from the same manufacturer:

    I have just send them an email asking for further information about the Multiflex head.
    If I'll get an answer, I'll let you know.

    I never understood the cube, what does it do that any good pan head does not do if you have camera levels?

    It is geared and permits much finer adjustments of the position of the camera. I use a ball head with the Rolleicord and Manfrotto 410 geared head with my 4x5. The 410 is much more precise and easy to point and straight the camera.

    I understand that, but how precise do you need to be? I don't know if it has happened to you, but here in Mexico sometimes the buildings are out of plumb. You level everything, you look on the GG, and the lines are all wrong, you actually have to move the camera off level to get it to look right. I always thought the cube was a nice idea but overkill in most situations.

    I think its main application is for digital cameras Jorge... ;-p and to extract money from wallets.

    It looks cool but I'd worry about dirt and knocks outside a clean room.
