Arron, London Semi-Professional Photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
- strong
- reasonable weight
- firm head
- good height
- easy to use

I purchased this to replace a 190 series tripod and 391RC2 head as the 391 was unable to perform solidly enough, even within it's weight limits. The 804RC2 has a limit of 1kg less, yet outperforms the 391 by a mile.
Bad points:
- could do with a hook on the bottom for adding weight rather than the quick release flat plate option.

Paul, Newcastle Upon Tyne

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very solid, the quick release mechanism has a safety button that prevents accidental release and also holds the release open so the camera can be easily clicked back in place with one hand.
Bad points:
A tad on the heavy side.

This model could be a bit heavy for long field trips. apart from that there are no bad points about this tripod.

Manufacturer's Description

Built on the same ergonomically improved design as the 055XPROB, but without the horizontal centre column feature, the 055XB is lighter in weight and slightly more compact. One of the most versatile and popular tripods in the Manfrotto range. This version is sturdy and portable enough to take in the field, ideal for medium format and SLR. A low angle adapter stores on the bottom of the centre column. Leg section diameters in mm: 29.4, 25, 20.
