This tripod is heavy, expensive and it's well worth it. I now have three tripods all from Manfrotto, the four sections 190, 055 and 057. While the other two are great in their own ways, the 057 is just so much sturdier. It's my new go to tripod for windy conditions, long exposures at night or shooting wildlife with my big lens mounted.
This product is used to hold my camera, digital/film,35mm and medium format. The quick release plates allow me to change cameras,formats,etc., quickly and easily with no hassle. Because it will extend to 80 inches, and then to ground level, allows me to shoot from many different angles. It is so functional. I love it!!!
I intend to use this pod for all of my photography. It is certainly built for anything want to shoot. I can shoot from high up, or I can shoot low. This is the tripod I've always wanted. It has all The Options in one piece of equipment, that I've had to buy separate pods for. I've just purchased it, so the discovery of it's full potential is yet to come.
