Very good tripod

John, Eagle Optics
5 August 2013
  • Summary: I'm not an expert on tripods but the 055XB has a durable and high quality feel. It's very stable mounting a Leopold Kenai HD 80mm spotting scope. I think that the tripod is a good value.

Big Solid Tripod

Josh, Eagle Optics
21 May 2011
  • Summary: This tripod is a bit of a pain to carry around, but it's worth it, considering the superior stability they offer. The only time I've experienced shaking while using these legs was when I lowered the legs down so my brother (5'10" maybe)could look through my scope and then raised the center column to my height (6'10") in heavy wind. I also appreciate how easy they are to use, with the quick lock, grips, and multiple hooks.

Rock solid

Eric, Eagle Optics
23 February 2011
  • Summary: At Mike's recommendation at Eagle Optics, we bought these to support the Vortex 85mm scope. Before they arrived, I used my lightweight camera tripod - almost unusable, especially with any wind. The Manfrotto legs are very stable, easily adjusted, and I like the little bells and whistles - a hook to hang weight, pads on two legs, etc. They are on the heavy side (but we bird mostly by car or bike).

  • Conclusion: Att använda: 5 Hållbarhet: 4 Ville ha ett ur 055-serien och så stabilt som möjligt. Märkte snart att det fanns en hel del olika modeller och versioner. Därför köpte jag ett nytt och utan vikbar mittpelare. Trots det så är mittpelaren inte så stabil som man skulle kunna önska. Benhöjden räcker ändå till normalt upprätt fotande så problemet är inte så stort. Längst ner på mittpelaren finns ett huvud utan pelare för makrofoto.
  • Pros: förhållandevis billigt och stabilt
  • Cons: Aluminium

Il treppiedi che ho sempre sognato

Pawwa, Ciao
3 February 2010
  • Summary: Fino ad oggi ho usato un treppiedi scarso da 50 euro sul quale montavo la mia telecamera per le riprese, poi ho deciso di acquistare questo e ne sono soddisfatto. Certo è pesante quindi diventa brigoso portarselo sulle spalle ma è un prezzo che sono disposta a pagare per tenere al sicuro la mia telecamera.
  • Pros: Robusto e sicuro
  • Cons: pesante

il classico di casa manfrotto, un acquisto sicuro

leonegala, Ciao
14 June 2009
  • Summary: Parlando rapidamente é il treppiedi base tra i portatili di casa manfrotto. Pesa due chili e mezzo è in alluminio rivestito di uno strato inossidabile e in parte di gomma, si estende fino a 1 metro e ottanta ed è indistruttibile. Lo utilizzo da 2 anni e l'ho grassato una volta sola ed anche se, associato alla testa, pesa più di tre chili (che fanno la differenza sul mio zaino fotografico) non lo cambierei per nulla al mondo con i modelli più leggeri in carbonio.
  • Pros: robusto e regolabile
  • Cons: pesante
