Manfrotto 055XDB

I bought myself a new tripod because it was bit of a bargain and my old one had seen better days. I have had my old one for 15-years and it was second hand when I got it so long overdue a replacement.

It came with the Manfrotto 22 Joystick grip as well.

I have to say I really love this tripod.

It is well built and a great design. It is not the lightest unit but excellent for my needs.

Nice

Built like a tank, great for plonking down at a wedding or in a studio. Nice and high to.

I'd like to see the photo's taken using it.

Jason - the maximum image size is 1000 pixels on the longest side - could you re-size please?

The fish is really vibrant!

Sorry about that. I've resized in photobucket to just under 1000px and re-saved the photos over the top. Can you confirm that this has worked?

Set them both to 999 but I remember the last time when I set them to 1000px they were a little over.
