The Bogen/Manfrotto 055XDB Tripod Legs builds on the success of the 3011/3021 series, but has been redesigned to offer even better ergonomics of the leg-angle release mechanism. With less features than the 055XB or 055XBPRO and a simpler design, this model is about 0.5 lb lighter, and a more economical choice. It is ideal for use with 35mm and light medium format photographic cameras, and digital or conventional type video camcorders.

The 496RC2 Compact Ballhead is constructed of die-cast aluminum, strong enough to support SLR or DSLR cameras with a medium lens, and light medium format cameras. It has a single repositionable locking lever for 360° panoramic rotation, ±90° tilt movement, plus a friction control for precise positioning. Cameras are attached to the ball head with the 200PL-14 Plate with 1/4" male threads. The head to tripod attachment has 3/8" female threads. Additionally, the Quick Release has a safety system to prevent an accidental detaching from the head.
