    Default MANFROTTO 55X PRO-B for sale

    Selling this tripod for $200 or nearest offer. It is only 2 months old (bought it for $299) is in excellent condition and will suit pretty much all lens and camera setups.
    It does not come with a head. Reason for selling is that I feel I need something a bit bigger for my 600mm. The lens weighs 6 kilos so you can understand why I'm thinking of upgrading. It did actually do a fairly good job with such a heavy lens but would probably be better for the 500mm or smaller.
    A review and some images can be seen here http://photography-on-the.net/forum/...d.php?t=529785

    The lucky buyer will also get a large stack of photography mags (2 years worth of outdoor photography as well as others)

    Just send me a PM

    Just looking to replace because the tripod has a centre post which means I can't go really, really low when I want. Dunno what I'd replace it with, given up on the idea because I have just been getting down on the ground when I need to go really low, its been a good tripod and head setup so far.
