Manfrotto 055X tripod

A new tripod had been on my wishlist for some time.

My el-cheapo one that I bought when I first got into photography back in my uni days was good for the basics. But these days most of my photography is for my business and this blog so it was time to upgrade to something a bit more pro.

Specifically I needed a tripod that can take shots from directly overhead for my tutorial and product photography. As anyone who’s ever tried doing this with a regular tripod will tell you, all the legs (your own legs as well as the tripod’s) will get in the way.

So when the rep from the new photography shopping and sharing platform Snappit contacted me about reviewing one of their products, I knew exactly which one I wanted to try.

They kindly sent me the Manfrotto 055X PROD tripod to test out. You can read my review over on Snappit.

Thanks to my very talented brother-in-law Dan Parsons for taking the action shots for me!

Disclosure: I wasn’t paid to write this post but the tripod was supplied by Snappit. Opinions are my own.

  • That really looks like a great tripod! I love that it lets you take 90 degree angle shots. I need to look in to a tripod like that for my blogging photos!

    • It comes in very handy!
