I use a Manfrotto 058B Triaut it's joy to work with and never failed me. For location work i use a 055XPROB it's a very nice tripod for the money. Im contemplating to get a new CF 057 with a geared center column if my tripod use increase on location.


Regards
Paul L.

Having been ultra impressed by the Neotec Monopod I have just ordered the tripod as well. That I can set it up and take it down quickly is important.

Hope you find the right one for you

I have a Manfrotto 732MY Carbon Fiber Tripod with a 494rc2 ball head, because it's light. I was planning to buy the 190xprob but that thing weighs a lot to me, and I don't want that much weight.

055mf4, usually with center column removed because i really don't need it. the max extension of this thing is absolutely perfect for my height so it simply works for me


40d + 50mm f1.8 MK I + my feet.

I have 5 different bogen tripods and 3 different bogen monopods .
For heavy duty [ain't going to blow over in wind] 3001
3021 for lighter use .
055XProB because it is solid and cheap. I have a 190CX3 that I left in Mexico at vacation home .
The lightess is the modo - I don't really like but it is light .
All have the 3047 style heads and 3049 type Quick release plates . Bogen also makes a 625 pancake head that works great on the monpod , window pod and cane pod .
I use the 3049 type QR plates because of there adaptabilty .
I have then adapted to the gimbal , rails , monpod , window pod and cane pod .
There are options that nobody else has - like the 303QTVR Panoramic Kit w/ 338 Level Base
[I need another one - left it in Mexico also]

190CX3 - because I can take out the center column to make it very light for traveling. And also because it was on offer, new and local, at the store. It's the closest for the money to a Gitzo to me, after trying both brands of tripods.

Can anyone tell me whats the folded length of this tripod - not the pro model (w/o Head) with the center column removed?

I am thinking of picking up this tripod to take along with me on an African Safari and to Zanzibar (for long exposures with Hoya NDX400) - and would like this to fit in my small check in baggage.

Thanks

I use the:
Manfrotto 3001BPRO because it's the predecessor of the 190XPROB and because it's very durable.
I use it in combination with the Manfrotto 496RC2 Ballhead. It holds my 7D and 17-40mm quite well.

055XB legs and 498RC2. Relatively cheap and sturdy. Gets the job done for me. Night and day difference over the give-away tripods you get with kits.

I have a 055XProB with a 322RC2 and 498RC2 heads and at least 4 quick release plates. Why? Because I've been too busy to take pictures of it so I can sell it. I've had them about 7 months and I don't use any of them any longer.
