The new tripod arrived today, a ManfottoMT055XPRO3 and what a great bit of kit! They have updated the leg locks with something far better than the older version, the clips are way bigger and let the legs fall open with ease. The column is also updated and a really funky system allows you to pull it all the way up, rotate it 90 degrees and shoot the floor (or sky) with ease. It's a little heavier, 2.5kg compared to 1.9kg, but it feels better built and more sturdy. A great bit of kit.
