Hey all, I started off looking for a horizontal arm attachment to go with my 055XB. But in the course of looking saw the 055xPRO3 which has the centre column able to do horizontal as a built-in feature. Price CDN$ around $350 so would have to save for it but if it's worth it...

So if anyone out there has this tripod and has used the centre column for horizontal work, would love to hear from you.

I have an old Manfrotto, it's in storage. It's way too heavy to carry around. I looked up the one you are wanting and it looks like an awesome tripod. Go for it.

I have the 190XPROB, which is an older version with the same center column mechanism. It's a REALLY handy feature for portrait orientation.

B&H is offering it with a $100 Rebate

Sorry I can't post the full URL, but this should work:

I have the 190XPRO4 with the same 90° Column Feature for roughly the same price.

At the moment I use it for simple product photography, and it has made shooting MUCH easier.

OK, have found the best deal on that tripod. Still wish I could just get an attachment to go with old tripod, which is also a Manfrotto and has absolutely nothing wrong with it. May just get the 190xpro4 as it's a good deal cheaper.
