My tripod, a manfrotto 055c about 14 years old, has gone bit sloppy. When i pick it up all the legs close together making it awkward to move around.
Does anyone know where i can get it serviced? I don't really want to buy a new one if i can avoid it.

you could probably service it yourself.
I took mine to pieces carefully so I would know how to put it back together and located the damaged/worn part.
The great thing about Manfrotto is you can buy every little bit of their tripods seperately and they are very helpful. I contacted them and they gave me a phone number of my nearest place for help. Non technical me then explained to a patient and long suffering advisor on the telephone what piece I needed (didn't know the name of it) and he ordered it for me. It can take up to 4 wks to get but it was worth it and only cost a phone call and £3 something
cheers, will look into it
