nice nice nice!
It might be cheaper elsewhere! I can't tell what model it is on camerapricebuster - but looks similar to this one which is half price:
camerapricebuster.co.uk/Man…-3W

Although the mount seems different.

It’s the same body but that is the 3 way head (I think manfrotto has that model for £135) so yours is a great deal. I recently got the 055 carbon with free ball head before Xmas with 20% off from a deal on here so thought would share this one. Seems great value for a carbon fibre pack.
Cheers
Great tripod - I have one myself. Just a heads-up that it's slightly cheaper at Park Cameras:

Don't forget to check your cashback sites too for a little extra off.
This seems like a very good deal. I havn't been shopping for tripods for a while, but my go-to supplier (for most photographic accessories) was WEX, and looking on there even the standard 055 (used to be considered one of the best bang for your buck tripods for an enthusiast starting out) without head is £165: wexphotovideo.com/man…18/

I could use another pod, so I might just pull the trigger on this one.

Thanks for posting OP, and keep up the good work!

Thanks mate. I thought this was good for carbon fibre. I got my 055 from WEX and they are a great. The 055 is awesome and carbon fibre when it brass monkeys outside isn’t as cold as aluminium, lol.
Cheers
This one could be a good budget alternative (although not rated for as much of a load) for those who don't mind aluminum:

Fotosense 119, don’t know about the shop. Anyone used Fotosense?

how is it compere to 055 series ?


If memory serves the 055 can hold more weight and can extend higher. I believe if you are over 6 feet then 055 is better. There is a tripod chooser thingy on manfrotto website. The 055 is more and doesn’t come with a head (another £80-£120 on top I think).
Hope this helps.
Does this have a 90 degree column system? IE can you shoot overhead shots?

Also would this be of better value to the 190 Go! ?

I don't mind paying the extra price, but if I don't need to I'd prefer not to.

I need a tripod that is lightweight and portable, best bang for my buck, that can shoot overhead shots.
