I just got my first semi somewhat touching at the professional level tripod for my Canon XSI. The tripod I got is the Manfrotto 055xprob. My first impression of this tripod is absolutely stunning that I had to start posting for this tripod at midnight of 2:00 AM on Saturday.
The tripod itself only cost a high $200.
Its head (808RC4) along cost $160.
This thing is rock solid.
