Does anyone know where to find a ball head like this:



Or something similar. I only need the ball joint part, not the plate..etc. It would also be great if it didn't have a lock and was operated by friction.

Or does anyone know where you'd find industrial ball/swivel heads like that?

Looks like a Manfrotto......

Any camera shop. Closest to you would be Kerrisdale Cameras in Old Orchard Mall.

I have Manfrotto's because it came with the tripod. I also have the Super Clamp for filming footage at the track.

If there's something better, I'd be all over it. Senna, buddy............. chime in!

Actually, what i need i nothing camera related (I should have indicated that in the first post).

But more of the swivel capacity that the ball head offers.

Is it going to hold a lot of weight?

They have TV mounts with ball type swivels. You might find something at Princess Auto in their Surplus section.

Anyone know where I can buy some fancy photo album case? And no I am not talking about the one you can buy at Superstore or Walmart, but the kind you find in a high end niche store.

No more than 3lb at most.

I looked up Princess Auto's online catalogue but I guess I'll have to pay them a visit IRL. FML.

you mean degreaser..........

I guess one can remove solvent. Anyway, I haven't seen the product on shelves for quite some time. I hear it works very well and is made of natural ingredients - you some tree hugger? LOL.

Try calling Planet Green Janitorial Supplies

http://www.planetclean.com

I have this feeling that the product is no longer available for sale here in Canada.

Looking for the CHEAPEST place (ideally in the vancouver/burnaby area) that carries USB car chargers. I dont need any cables with it, just the charger itself.
For some reason most places include a cable and mark up the price.

Something along the lines of this:

I'm having trouble finding one of those gel pad things you put on your dashboard for electronics. Oh, and do they actually work? If i'm going uphill or over a speed bump will my phone fall off?
