    considering you have a 550D I think the 055XPro is a bit of over-kill unless you are very tall, I reckon you should look at the 190XProB

    There is a guide to buying tripods on here, which is pretty helpful. Do a search and see what you find.

    Hi ricktas,
    Thanks for your reply. Yes, im just 5'10". but i like the solidness of 055xProB than 190xProB and in future im going to get panorama heads like, Manfrotto Precision Panoramic Head(303Plus) or Manfrotto Multi-row Panoramic Head(303SPH). i believe 055xProB is the suitable one to above mentioned VR Heads too.

    Hi Pat Redmond,
    Thanks, yes ill check it.

    cheers,
