Product Highlights
  • Includes 808RC4 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head
  • RC-4 Quick Release
  • Supports 12.4 lbs (5.6kg)
  • Bubble Level
The Manfrotto 055XPROB Pro Tripod with 808RC4 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head builds on the success of the 3011/3021 series. It features the Manfrotto-patented horizontal center column feature, which allows the center column to flip quickly and easily from vertical to horizontal. By extending the column to its highest vertical position, it can be swung over to horizontal without removing the head or disassembling the column itself. The ergonomics of the leg-angle release mechanism and the quick action leg locks have also been improved.

The 808RC4 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head features improved ergonomic design plus a counter spring system. Borrowed from the video industry, this feature makes it possible to move the camera smoothly while framing the picture, as it helps to balance some of the camera's weight. In addition, it absorbs the shock to bodies and lenses when reaching the end stop of the head movement.

    Comments about Manfrotto 055XPROB Pro Tripod Legs (Black):

    Originally had this tripod with a ball head but had to replace due to theft. Wasn't thrilled with the ball head and after talking with the rep went with this setup. Very Happy with 808 head, the pan and tilt is smooth and has decent adjustable spring on it as well. The head also feels very sturdy with my Canon 7D w/battery grip and 400mm lens which has some weight too it.

    I use it in the field, in my home studio. It's a little heavy but that is what I was looking for.
