The Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod makes the famous Manfrotto-patented horizontal centre column feature even easier to use. By extending the column to its highest vertical position, it can be swung round to horizontal without removing the head or disassembling the column itself, so switching between framing and positioning setups is more convenient than ever. The
ergonomics of the leg angle release mechanism and the quick action leg locks themselves have also been greatly improved. More

A Good Tripod
Excellent tripod - but heavy for travelling.
Very good but be prepared for the weight
from Newcastle upon Tyne
I am a keen amateur photographer, the tripod is very versatile but a tad heavy to carry on a just in case basis that it may be required.
OMG wish I'd bought this ages ago.
By Gene Stevo
from Colwyn Bay
My insurance co had to pay out to repair my K-7 and 30mm prime when I knocked over my lightweight Slikpro tripod.I reckon I could drive a car at this thing and it would still be OK (well, almost).If you're as clumsy as me buy this version and spend the money you save by not buying carbon fibre version on something nice for your wife...or a new 410 geared head.
Solid, Sturdy Tripod
Yes its heavy, but not too bad, the weight of it is a good thing, makes it very sturdy. Pump some weights you wont be bothered by the weight :-)
Ideal for our Great British weather
By The Crickster
from County Durham
Ideal all rounder, a little heavy for carrying around all day but great for keeping your prized camera in check
Brilliantly Designed and built Tripod.
By Wheelie Bear
from Blairgowrie, Scotland.
If I didn't know it was Italian I would have said it was designed and made in Germany. But after all, Italy is the home of Ferrari! It is just so very clever and elegant. Best accessory bought for ages!

Great value for money tripod !
I bought this tripod for general home studio / macro work. In fairness it performs as expected. My only concern is that when the centre column is in the horizontal position and extended out it does tend to shake a little and may be unstable if fully extended (hence the 4 stars). That said using an 85mm macro lens would tend to exaggerate any movement in any event. However when the centre column is upright I have found the tripod to be as solid as a rock. The legs lock in well and there is a handy little spirit level built in to aid in levelling the tripod.I would recommend this tripod as in my opinion it's a good balance between price and performance. Build quality is exceptional as expected from Manfrotto. As the saying goes you get what you pay for and this certainly is the case with this tripod.

Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod
About Me Professional
Very good bit of kit for the price. Stability and structure is great for this price range. Can get heavy if out on long landscape shoots, especially in English weather

Great tripod, great price!
About Me Getting started
Great tripod for the price.Wanted a decent tripod that wasn't going to brake the bank but the same time would hold my D7000 safe.Trust this tripod as it looks, feels and is extremely strong.Camera lives on it rather than on the table.Maybe a little on the heavy side if you're out on a hike but it's not too bad.Grate range of height adjustments too, can go from say about 10cm off the floor right up to about 7ft.
