Bored at work and feeling a bit blue I did what any red blood American would do, seek instant gratification through unbridled consumerism.Â Considering I had no money and massive debt I decided to use my credit cards rewards program. Imagine my surprise when I discovered they carried serious camera equipment.
I had been looking to purchase a tripod for my Canon Vixia so when I saw they carried Manfrotto it was a done deal.
The 055XPROB makes the famous Manfrotto-patented horizontal centre column feature even easier to use. By extending the column to its highest vertical position, it can be swung round to horizontal without removing the head or disassembling the column itself, so switching between framing and positioning setups is more convenient than ever. The ergonomics of the leg angle release mechanism and the quick action leg locks themselves have also been greatly improved.
