These "Show us your ..." threads seems quite popular. Lots of them have helped me research into gear that i was looking to buy.

I have done a search to see if there already was a post like this but couldn't find one.

So if you have a picture with your tripod, monopod, ballhead or the whole rig etc. then please post i here and name the parts - I think it could be really useful. :D

I just recieved my Manfrotto 055B-Pro and 486 Rc0 Ballhead, so I thought I would follow up on this very popular thread... :) I bought mine used (as with all my gear) and the used marked in Denmark isn't very big, so i jumped in when i saw the 055Pro. I bought it together with a Manfrotto 486 Rc0 ballhead and a Manfrotto 681B Monopod. Since i already have the 680B monopod which is smaller I'm going to sell the 681B.

Left to right - 680B, 681B, 055BPro + 486 Rc2

I haven't tried the 488 ballhead but the 486 seems quite solid and locks tight with the most heavy setup I can manage:

I love how the 055Pro can go very close to the ground, when rearranging the middle pole:

Sorry, I was using shorthand notation in my equation: '+' = with and '-' = without. So, no center columns in my legsets.

Wow - it took more than two years to get this thread going. :) Keep the pictures coming. I'm drooling over those Gitzos... Still have the 055 Pro...
