      The 055XPROB delivers decent load handling and tall height at an affordable price

      Manfrotto is one of the most well known respected names in the world of tripods. The Manfrotto 055XBPRO is a rather large but affordable, keen amateur/professional tripod designed for general purpose use. I must say that it has served me exceedingly well in all areas of my photography. Being quite tall myself I opted for this model as it is one of the tallest in its range and gives great stability. Maximum height is 178.5cm, 142cm with the central column down. It is of aluminium construction making it relatively light (2.4kg) but taking nothing away from its durability. It's load capacity being 7.00kg.
      Please take note straight away that it, like most higher- end tripods, does not come with a head. This must be purchased separately according to personal choice. It does however feature a plate onto which you are able to mount a wide variety of heads.
      By extending the centre column to its highest vertical position, it can be tilted to the horizontal without removing the head or disassembling the column itself, thus switching between framing and positioning setups is easier than ever. The leg angle release mechanism and the quick action leg locks are smooth and extremely easy to operate.
      All in all this is a very versatile and pleasing piece of essential kit, removing the shakes and enabling pin point sharp results. Which, of course, at the end of the day, is what we all want.
