don't have much to compare this to, except for a $30 sunpak tripod I got from best buy. This guy's expensive, especially since the head is separate, but I love this thing. It's moderate in weight (we'll see if I have to carry it far, but feels very solid. The latches are convenient, I prefer them to knobs -- we'll have to see if they remain the same tightness over time.The vertical mount is very easy to adjust (compared to my cheapo tripod that I had to CRANK to adjust). The whole unit can get q ... uite tall, and quite low. The default setup is a convenient height.I love the Manfrotto 222 Joystick head I got with it -- the whole unit together feels amazingly solid!Pricey (not by photography standards (it's not too expensive), just by normal human being standards), but cool.

Added on 10/21/2007: I posted the review below under the product 055XPROB (and it got 5 helpful votes), but amazon mistakenly moved it to 055XB (and since then it got 2 unhelpful votes). Anyway, 055XB should be a very good tripod. But I encourage you to compare it with 055XPROB, which is just a little more expensive.Original review: It is a great, sturdy tripod. The only down side is it is a little heavy. But this is what you pay for being sturdy. Bogen/Manfrotto has changed the SKU# from ... 3021BPRO to 055XPROB. Look at the glowing reviews on the 3021BPRO to convince yourself. More >

This tripod legs are great: sturdy, versitile and very steady; but please note that for a $ 10.00 more the 055XB Classic can be 055XPROB you can pull out the center post to slide into a horizontal position, but even without the tripod legs works great as should be. It's a little heavier and has plastic parts that I would like to be more stronger and not plastic.
