    Meh.

    Just bought Manfrotto 055XPROB and 488RC2 head for $220 shipped used. Look into that combo... it's highly recommended by many.

    thanks, i'll definitely look into that. the cheaper the better as long as the quality is still there.

    Good deal for a semi-fluid head if you're doing video. Waste of money for stills.
    edit: http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=4185598 if you want something similar to that for half the money.

    But yeah, don't waste money on a head like that for still work.

    055xProB and 488RC2 ball head

    great setup, very sturdy. i just realized it can go upside down by reading that review :rofl: i used to just set it horizontal and flat to get low shots :o
