Comments about Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod with 498RC2 Midi Ball Head Kit:

I have had this tripod and head for around a year it never fails me. Its super tough and will hold anything I throw at it. Its been dropped on concrete, put in water banged around and it still does a great job. The quick release system doesn't secure the camera to the point were it doesn't move at all, but I would not be scared to hold my camera and walk around with the tripod hanging off the bottom. Super good tripod.

Comments about Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod with 498RC2 Midi Ball Head Kit:

I'm a beginner with a Canon Rebel 4ti and I tried a few tripods before finding this one. It is very sturdy and stable; I find I can even lean on it a bit when it's close to the ground and it doesn't wobble. I love that the center strut comes all the way out and bends so you can get shots over a surface like a table, and I did a photography class assignment with the camera literally an inch off the ground with the legs splayed out all the way out. The quick release plate took a little getting used to because you have to release two levers at the same time (to avoid having the camera come off by accident) but after a few tries I'm able to put the camera on and off easily. It holds my camera up out on its own to about 18 inches from center with the legs in a normal upright position and the leg clamps all hold well. The only drawback is it is a bit heavy, but that's the price you pay for a nice stable tripod.
