      Comments about Manfrotto 055LLA Low Angle Adapter:

      I need a short center post for my Manfrotto 055ProB so I can use my camera controls while the tripod is splayed out to its lowest level for ground-level macro work.While the 055LLA build quality is fine by me, it neither attaches to the bottom of my tripod, nor does it fit snugly when I use it to replace the standard center post. There's no way to lock down the center post gymbal ring to prevent this adapter from wobbling. I can't figure out how Sharkey in Oakland, CA manages to overcome this wobble, and I should have paid attention to his negative review while shopping.Two things persuade me to keep this unit: It's a waste of time and shipping costs to return it, and I haven't been able to find any other center post for my tripod that will get as low as this one, so I'll work out some sort of modification to lock the thing in place.

        Comments about Manfrotto 055LLA Low Angle Adapter:

        Like another reviewer, I wasn't comfortable with the loose fit of this piece on the bottom of the center column. Then it dawned on me--maybe that's just the place to store this center column replacement! Take it off, and you can flip the center column, ball head and all, and have a truly functional low-level column to let you get up close, without the wobbles. And for those times when you need to spread the legs to the maximum, you can use this short adapter to replace the center column. Perfect! I am pretty sure that this must be what the engineers had in mind for this piece, and they just didn't communicate it to anyone. Four stars for functionality, would've been five if it were made of metal. And they need to let people know how to use it...

          The new tripod I bought 055cxv only comes with a rubber cap, this has come in handy many times with my other tripod.

          Comments about Manfrotto 055LLA Low Angle Adapter:

          Not happy with how loose it sits in my 055xProB tripod. Maybe I'm using it incorrectly, but I have tried all the ways I see possible. When in position and everything is clamped down, it is just too wiggly. I can use it to get the shots I need, but not really happy with its stability issue.

            Comments about Manfrotto 055LLA Low Angle Adapter:

            This is a fairly good adpater. I personally use it with my 055 series tripod and my older 3221WN tripod to allow for mounting of a camera on the bottom of the center column for low shots, and also as a replacement for the ceenter column on the 3221WN when I want the extra stability. It works well and is pretty secure, however I wish it were made from alumnum like the center column (or carbon fiber on the 055 series tripod) for some added strength. The plastic is fairly strong, but I am not sure how long it will last when I know my tripods will last me for decades. Overall a minor complaint and not something to take too much off of my rating for. I would still recommend it.

            Comments about Manfrotto 055LLA Low Angle Adapter:

            fits perfectly on my Manfrotto 055 series tripods and allows me to place either my photo or video camera super low to the ground; install and removal are quick and easy; the build quality feels solid; if you don't need the height the center column provides, then using this instead of the center column can make your tripod a little bit lighter...
