    All the budget pano heads sell directly off their websites, there is nothing in australia unless you build the manfrotto one (they sell it in about 3 pieces which ends up costing ~1k). Panosaurus is the cheapest one around but actually works very well.

    These arae the ones I found when I was looking around:
    psaurus: http://gregwired.com/pano/Pano.htm
    king pano: http://www.kingpano.com/
    nodal ninja: http://www.nodalninja.com/
    kiwi: http://www.kaidan.com/Detail.bok?no=146

    nodal ninja looks the strongest, but I actually saw a test somewhere showing that the panosaurus was stiffer.
