Manfrotto 055XPROB Review

The Manfrotto 055XPROB sets the bar high when it comes to the accessories a true-blue photographer should have. This tripod is pretty ideal for those cameras that are not so big but are not too small as well. It gives compact cameras the high-end feel that lets them shine as a recording gadget as well. The Manfrotto is made to be so versatile that it can even reach to those crucial points where it is very low or very high. It somehow becomes the bridge for those who cannot go that low or high by themselves.

 

The key features of the 055XPROB include the Q90 horizontal column feature which makes the low points more exciting as you do not need to bend over that low anymore. Through this feature, you get to reach the ground through the macro shots.

 

Ergonomic wise, the Manfrotto 055XPROB is very easy to setup and has the ability to quickly swing vertically or horizontally without any difficulty at all. If you want something that is truly user-friendly and will take the camera experience to the next level, then don’t think twice. The Manfrotto is considered one of the respectable brands in the market for tripods as it represents a brand of high quality tools very well. The Manfrotto 055XPROB is pretty easy to get used to as it is really flawless to work with. It may not be as portable as the others and some people even qualify it as a heavy tripod. Still, when it comes to providing prior safety to the camera you own and making it more versatile and dynamic, then this is such an eye-candy.

 

Flexibility is not a problem with this one at all because no matter what height you want it to have the Manfrotto 055XPROB can definitely adjust to that. If you are the photographer who always travels and is not really into photo studio, it is advised that you choose something lighter and more travelable.

 

The solid construction that it has may be the reason that the weight of it becomes questionable. To be honest the Manfrotto may not be the most outstanding tripod in the market but if you try to see how well it performs when it performs the way it should, it becomes pretty remarkable on its own right. Even though, the majority of people sometimes don’t like the bulkiness of this tripod and, of course, there are those who still find it lightweight and manageable. We can’t really tell, but even though a lot say that it may not be as light as a carbon fiber, the price of the Manfrotto 055XPROB is unquestionably low.

 

Overall, if you want something that will protect the camera while you are shooting or filming and something that may not be as lightweight but is sure not to drop the camera sideways with just a very subtle blow of air, then yes you found the one. Just do note that there are people who still say that the slightest touch for the 055XPROB makes it vibrate. This may not be true, but who knows. You just have to see by yourself.

  • The Good :
    Highly Functional, Versatile, Easy to use, Affordable, Solid, Steady
  • The Bad :
    Not as Lightweight, May Vibrate Easily
Our score:
4.5 / 5
