    Default Tripod Advice

    Finally i have the extra bucks to purchase a new tripod ( Student la )

    I'm heard that the Manfrotto 055 pro is discon't in the market and so which 055 series should i looking for right now ...

    My Current Equipment

    350D with Grip (Will be upgrading to 5D next year)
    430EX
    70-200F4 L

    My last combo is 055 +486 RC2 but it seen like the 486 been replace by 488 RC2, is it true?

    Budget is around $300 -$350

    For me, 190pro is good enough for me. There is no requirement for 055 models, since they are quite heavy and too tall for my requirement. If you get a tripod that is heavier than what you are comfortable with, they are likely to collect dust.

    I was thinking of 190 Xprob with 468RC2.....

    Now, tempted to get 190 MF 4.... lol.... the weight factor.....
