This is IT!!

Adorama
11 March 2015
  • Excerpt: Apparently I didn't know what a really great tri-pod was until I bought this. I have been using cheap, flimsy tripods for years. There is so much to say about this. Firstly, it is very heavy. I believe that is exactly what you need for a stable image in all conditions. It's rock solid.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Great build quality, Plenty of height, Rock Solid, Unfolds Quickly, Very versatile

What I Was Looking For

DickG, Adorama
19 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Have been looking for a tripod with all the "extra" features that permit almost unlimited angles and height adjustments. The Manfrotto 055XPROB fit the criteria. Stayed with the 3-way pan/tilt head as that is what I am use to.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
  • Cons: Could Be Considered Heavy

GREAT COMBINATION!!

SBPHOTOS, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I've done a lot of research on tripods and heads before purchasing this combination. For the price, I believe this Manfrotto set is top quality.

Awesome Tripod

GnarDanks, Adorama
10 June 2012
  • Excerpt: This is my first tripod, but I researched before buying it. I wanted to invest in a tripod/head combo that would last a long time and hold my equipment as I upgraded in the future. This will hold a lot of weight and is very stable. The head is great for panning video.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: This is a great tripod for the price. The legs can be adjusted independent of each other. Paired with a nice ball head it is a great piece of equipment to keep your camera steady. It is a bit heavy but still manageable if you have the right bag to sling over your shoulders.
  • Pros: sturdy, versatile
  • Cons: a bit heavy

  • Excerpt: I've only had it for about two weeks but it is just an awesome tripod to have and use. With the combination of a ball head top(ie: my manfrotto 494RC2) the shooting angles, heights, etc are more than enough for me and I would imagine for most others as well.
  • Pros: sturdy, solid, many shooting angles
  • Cons: on the heavier side

  • Excerpt: I got this tripod from Amazon Warehouse who said it had a scratch on one of the legs, hence the deep discount. Lets face it, a tripod is meant to be used so a small scratch saves me arond $100 - woohoo!
  • Pros: Steady, flexible, tall, versatile
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: I bought this tripod several years ago, and there is nothing I can complain about. Yeah, it's heavy compared to carbon fiber tripods and even to flimsier other aluminum 'pods, but it does what it was meant to do, hold your camera and lens steady.
  • Pros: Variable leg angles, flexible set ups, center colum easily converts to horizontal
  • Cons: long and somewhat heavy
