The Manfrotto 055XB Tripod with 128RC Fluid Head is a B&H Kit that combines a lightweight head with quick-action tripod legs. Ideal for use with small to mid-size camcorders and DSLRs, this kit will get you in and out with a minimum of fuss, letting you find your shots quickly and efficiently.
The 128RC micro fluid head is a lightweight fluid-effect head that features an adjustable pan bar and quick release camera plate with secondary security--ideal for cameras weighing up to 8.8 lbs (4kg). It has smooth fluid movement, plus separate pan and tilt locks.
The Bogen/Manfrotto 055XB tripod builds on the success of the 3011/3021 series, but has been redesigned to offer even better ergonomics of the leg-angle release mechanism as well as improved quick-action leg locks. While it can reach a maximum working height of 70" (178cm), it can also be used as low as 2.8" (7cm) by using the low-angle adapter built in to the center column.
