  • Excerpt: So far I've just used this tripod to video a wedding and it was just what I needed. It's a little too heavy for me to take hiking, but it is great as long as I don't have to carry it a mile.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: Good build as manfrotto always does. Sturdy and strong. Legs may feel a bit flimsy as you're opening them, but pretty solid once on ground. The rubber soles help keep it stuck in place. Can carry enough weight, and can go into a very low angle, which are two pretty good options to have.
  • Pros: Good Stability
  • Cons: Heavy

Solid Support!

  • Excerpt: I needed a tripod that would let me get very close to the ground for nature macro shots and the 055XPROB does that with the flipping center column. Very stable on grass and hard dirt. Surprised to find that the rubber tips on the legs don't grip better on smooth wood floors. This allows the legs to slide outward when any downward pressure is placed on the lens/camera, thus ruining the shot's framing.
  • Pros: Good Stability
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: Very sturdy and well constructed, stable tri-pod. It is somewhat on the heavy side if you are carrying it on a hike but traveling short distances its weight is not an issue. It unfolds very easily and can be set up quickly.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: This tripod is very stable and well made. It holds my 1dx and L lenses and is great for studio use. It's heavy so not ideal for travel.
