Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 Overview

The Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod is a three-section support that replaces the 055XPROB tripod. It has a load capacity of 44 lb and extends from 3.5" to 67". 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.

Would I be able to use a medium to large size gimbal head on this tripod?
Asked by: Ron
The Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod has a maximum support weight of 19.8 lb. Technically, as long as the total weight you are putting on the tripod including the head, camera body and lens is no more than around 19 lbs it should be fine.

Is this tripod’s center post reversible to allow the camera to be positioned between the three legs of the tripod?
Asked by: Matthew
This tripod has a center post that can be positioned at 90° relative to the chassis. To invert 180° however, is possible, though a very difficult, puzzle-like process. It involves removing the center column with a second press of the column pin, then making sure the red half-shell ( Manfrotto part R103973 ) is in the low position, next, reaching in the shell to keep the black pin ( Manfrotto part R103908 ) pressed in, and following through with the center column itself. It does not appear to be formally designed for inversion. Hope this helps.
