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

Sturdy set of pins
About Me Semi-Professional
Great set of pins these. I've toyed with tripods only in the past couple of years. I also kept buying things from light weight travel pods to budget tripods. This is more than an upgrade as I will have these pins until the day I can't take another photo. Used so far for travel, astro, night and day long exposure. I also have a Manfrotto 498RC2 Midi Ball Head to go with it.

Works extremely well with my Nikon D7000
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

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

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.

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.
