Manfrotto 055XPROB 3-Section Tripod with 322RC2 Ballhead & MBAG80 Padded Bag
Key Features
  • Supports 11.0 lbs (5kg)
  • Made in Italy
The Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod is their most fully featured medium weight class aluminum legset, delivered in this configuration with their very popular 322RC2 Grip Action Ballhead and a well-made padded bag.  Manfrotto makes a great aluminum tripod, and they're continually improving a basic design frameset that's survived for over two decades now.

This latest-generation 055XPROB model features improved flip-lever leg locks and a center column which doubles as a lateral arm and does so at just a moment's notice.  Rated for 11 lbs (5kg) and with 29.4mm diameter upper leg segments, this tripod's appropriate for use with SLR cameras and any lens smaller than a 300mm f/2.8 (the legs can support a 300mm f/2.8 by exchanging the ballhead).

This particular kit (with the 322RC2 head) is an ideal choice for working professionals and advanced enthusiasts wanting the fastest possible unlocking/repositioning/locking speed for the tripod head.  It is perfect for wedding applications.  As delivered, it will place the camera's viewfinder at or above the eye level for the majority of people when the legs are extended and the column is fully retracted (the 'working height').

wHAT IS THE BUTTON FOR AT THE BASE OF THE CENTER COLUMN?
Asked by: George
The button is so you can deploy the column laterally. In other words, you can flip over the column horizontally so you can shoot down, directly over your subject.
