Anyone with experience with a Sunwayfoto Single Row Panorama setup?

While I do like Really Right Stuff, I have a hard time justifying at the moment the $428.65 price tag on their Pano Elements Package which includes the dovetail adaptor for their panning clamp, CA tax, and shipping for someone who's planning to do panoramas on occasion.

Did some research and looked into Sunwayfoto. Seems like they had a good assortment of components.

Multi-Purpose Rail Nodal Slide DMP-200 - 200mm (7.87 inches) - $99 (Ebay)

Panning Clamp DDH-03 - $122 (Ebay)
http://www.sunwayfoto.com/html/products/201209/364.html

That's $207.65 (52%) in savings.

I don't have any experience with this product, but I just wanted to give you a heads up that many people here do not hold Sunway in very high regard. It has nothing to do with the quality of their products, but it does have to do with their business practices. See this thread.

If you plan on occasional pano work then you might want to consider the King Pano at $149.00 ... I've had one for years and it has served my needs very well.

I have the smaller Sunway Photo panning clamp #DDH-02 on a Markins Q3T for use on a gitzo traveler tripod. It is very well built and easily handles my Olympus E-M5 and any lenses for it.

Personally I'd rather have a leveling base and use the panning base on my ball head. This set up allows the horizon to be placed around the frame rather than in the middle every time. As you point the camera down though, the lens will move farther forward and you'll need a longer rail. As you tilt the camera up you won't need as much rail, so it's helpful to be able to move the clamp position on the rail to keep it out of the frame on WA shots. My rail is from Hejnar Photo. It was just fine and he was great to work with.
