Just the basics

This is the basic no frills model. The center column doesn't tilt sideways, it's not carbon fiber, but it's amazingly solid and does what it should. This tripod includes the short center column, so you can get it very close to the ground. The three leg sections are nice since that 3 less locks to fiddle with for maximum height. It gets very tall even without elevating the center column. It's a bit heavy (and doesn't come with a carrying bag), so it's not ideal for long treks off road. The w...

This is the basic no frills model. The center column doesn't tilt sideways, it's not carbon fiber, but it's amazingly solid and does what it should. This tripod includes the short center column, so you can get it very close to the ground. The three leg sections are nice since that 3 less locks to fiddle with for maximum height. It gets very tall even without elevating the center column. It's a bit heavy (and doesn't come with a carrying bag), so it's not ideal for long treks off road. The weight however gives it a nice feel of stability. The only improvement I would like is a level built into the top plate, and I'll probably rig that up myself.

tripod will work for my photo abilities

New to using a tripod and so far this tripod is working as expected.

Sturdy tripod

By

Stability comes with a price but the added weight is worth it. The construction is rock solid and ready for abuse.

Get the BEST!

By

Why waste your time on something less than the best? My customers count on me, I need a tripod I can count on. That is why I only use Bogen - Manfrotto.

Reliable! Great Product!

I use this product for video productions and time lapse and long exposure photography. It's lightweight without a video head like a 501 attached to it.

Heavy Duty

By

I bought this tripod to replace my Manfrotto model 3401B that isn't available anymore. If it is as good as the one it is replacing it should provide good results. The 3401B is roughly 15 years old and has traveled thousands of miles in the back of a truck on Horses,and backpacks, used to support spotting scopes,cameras,binoculars and also as a shooting rest for Big-Game hunting. Would rate as a 5 but have not used it in the field yet. Will provide follow-up in a year or 2. However Adorama is the sole provider for our Outfitting business needs in the way of tripods, optics, and cameras.

from a tall guy

By

this tripod is great for that tall photographer, not as light as a carbon fiber but not as heavy as others i tried. the thumb locks are easy to use and the legs slide in out fast. it is a very stable tripod.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
KEVIN M  Rock solid support, and easy on the back. No slouching/crouching to set up the shot, and no need to extend the center column. Love it!
Arun K  What is the difference between this and the Manfrotto 055XB Black *Basic* Tripod ?
GUILLERMO Q  There really isn't any difference. But when you buy this tripod, buy the swivel head as a kit and you'll save $25.00. (SKU: BG055XPROBKC)
Shopper  what is included in the box with this item? carrying case?
RANDY J  just the tripod itself, i purchased the pistol grip head with mine and have enjoyed both of these items,being over 6' tall the o55xb makes it easier on the back
