PSA: Don't buy from Markins USA

Just a warning that Markins USA seems to be out of business despite the fact they are taking new orders on their website.

Backstory: I ordered an L-Plate from Markins back in March, but never got a shipping confirmation. I waited weeks, sent them emails with no response. I decided to do some research and found that this was not an isolated incident. Fred Miranda had the same issue 2 YEARS ago and this is still going on, you can read more on FM if you like.

Finally I gave up and filed a claim with Paypal and I finally got my money refunded today.

Stay away from these sites:


That’s a bummer. I have 2 Markins Ball heads and they are fantastic. Sorry to hear they are out of business.
