Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

This kit contains the 701HDV Pro Fluid Video Mini Head and the 055XB Classic Black Tripod (055XBK). The 701HDV was developed specifically to support the latest prosumer and professional light compact HD camcorders, the 701HDV offers an updated design, which has been created for improved ergonomics with locks and knobs that allow for a more solid grip and better control, a better fluidity thanks to improved internal fluid cartridges, a double pan-bar rosette and a bigger sliding plate to optimize the position of the camera considering its centre of gravity.

The 055XBK Classic Black Tripod was 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.

The ergonomics of the leg angle release mechanism and the quick action leg locks themselves have also been greatly improved. With the leg angle presets, allow the camera to reach all intermediate heights from min-max extension.

    I have messed around for years with "cheap" tripods for under 100 euros, then i decided that i can't stick the 5d mark ii on a tripod i dont trust. I decided to go with this package, middle range, very impressed with the design and quality...

    Love this tripod. It's sturdy and does a great job. The fluid filled head is really smooth. Start up panning doesn't jerk like my old tripod. I'm using for still shots with my Mk III and HD video with my EOS 7D. Will eventually use it with the XF100 video camera and have no doubts it will do its job. It's 7kg, but you can't make a sturdy tripod with cocktail sticks.

    I've bought this tripod from Amazon last month and used it for various paid photography and film work.

    The build quality of this tripod is excellent. The head tilts/rotation/locks are all solid and sturdy and work exceptionally well for video panning.

    A bit pricey, but highly recommended if you need a reliable and robust tripod for either photography or filming.

    I bought this based on the reviews and also recommendations from a few semi-pro photographer friends. Unfortunately the first one had paint chips and rust on the head. This was promptly exchanged. 2nd had several marks on head and chips on tripod. 3rd replacement had evidently taken impact damage as packaging was marked and head damaged so was returned for refund.

    As usual Amazon were great in managing the whole process. But disappointed with my experience as was expected top quality gear. Ended up going for a cheaper brand which arrived in mint condition.

    May try Manfrotto again in the future but will buy separates.

    Solid pod for MiniDV cam 10 Feb 2009
    By Director - Published on Amazon.com
    Decent tripod for the money, nice fluid motion. Not as fast a setup on the fly as I would like it to be, and also wish there was a built-in handle. But overall it is a good tripod for my MiniDV needs.
