    There are lot of threads on internet and photo forum regarding this but I am still confused. will be really helpful if some body gives an advice.

    I have two choices both manfrotto.

    055xprob (133 USD) without head. A head would cost like another 100-150 dollars.
    190dxb (different from 190xprob) (127 USD) with head. unable to get info on net. I guess this a old model. if somebody has this model would love to know how it is.

    I have a Nikon D90 with 18-105 and 50mm.

    should I buy 190dxb or just go with 055xprob and spend a little extra. I am not thinking about the money but spending another 100-150 would make no sense if both of them give u the same functionality. I like to take portraits and landscapes and I am 5'7".

    Please please please reply. I am really confused. I read so many threads and they say both of the tripods are good but I am unable to decide.

    The sturdier the tripod and the stronger the head (depending on the weight of your camera/lens), the happier you will be with the results of the shots...and if you get a head you are comfortable working with, the ease of use.


    What type of photography are you shooting? Example, sports, portrait, landscape, etc...
