The Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod is a three-section support that replaces the 055XPROB tripod. It has a load capacity of 19.8 lb and extends from 3.5" to 66.9". Its legs are secured by the Quick Power Locks. These updated flip locks increase the tripod's rigidity by 50%, and its load capacity by 4.4 lb over its predecessor.

A redesigned center column has a "one finger" operation, and includes an Easy Link attachment for attaching accessories such as an LED light or a reflector. The center column can be positioned horizontally, allowing for low-angle and macro photography. The upper disc where a tripod head is mounted has been redesigned as well, and now has a bull's eye bubble level that rotates 360° so you can locate it where you can see it. This allows you to level your camera on both the horizontal and vertical planes.

    Comments about Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod:

    I love that i can make this extremely low to the ground or open up all the legs and raise the middle support. The legs get released with ease and the tripod provides solid support. I mount my kessler travel jib and 3' slider on this and it works great. I would recommend getting the manfrotto 438 to make the leveling a lot easier. Affordable tripod that gives the best bang for your buck.

    Comments about Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod:

    Super sturdy , a little Heavy , but hey it's aluminium & that's no bad thing right ? Leg locks very secure . The whole thing feels Quality , plenty high enough without the centre column raised , only used it for the 4th July fireworks on Brooklyn Bridge with my EOS 60D and a 24-105 at the moment Would benefit from a better hook on the bottom of the centre column ( to hang a weight from ) rather than the one on the side of the head mount , shame it doesn't come with a tripod bag a come with a tripod bag I got a Ruggard bag from B&H , always worth going to the store and Great prices
