Amazon has the Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod for $109.99 (compare at $229) for today only as its Deal of the Day. This is the previous generation tripod but is widely accepted as one of the standard enthusiast/pro tripods during its run.
It is very highly regarded and was updated within the past year, along with the 190 series. At $109, this is a solid deal that is only available for a few more hours. Check it out here at Amazon.
Manfrotto has added a new single leg aluminum tripod to the 535 series of video tripods. The MVT535AQ supports 44 pounds and features a 75mm bowl, as well as a 60mm bowl adapter.
It also adds a fourth leg section (compared to the three section carbon fiber model), while maintaining the same reach and load capacity, allowing it to be an even more compact design.
The MVT535AQ retails for $367 and will be available as a kit with the Manfrotto 500, 502 and 504HD video heads. Check out all of the Manfrotto 535 series here at B&H Photo.
