Seems the 2006 wedding between the two has been annulated. How much of a happy wedding that was is hard to say, but, we have been waiting for a follow up on the Nikon Capture NX2 a few years now and nothing is on, not even on the most sensitive of rumor radars.

Another popular item is our line of MAGICA products.

---and Now-- the Hubs---
The Markins TH-200 and TH-300 Hubs replace the platform hub reducing weight and top diameter of Series 2 and Series 3 carbon fiber tripods respectively, whether a Mountaineer or a Systematic model, providing a slim profile while keeping the sturdiness and vibration dampening of the previous TB base plate based MAGICA.
