Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 overview

  • 1Description

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.

Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 reviews

MT055XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 118.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Made from cheap plastic Don't buy this. Literally the first time we tried to pivot the center column to the 90 degree position, an internal plastic piece snapped and sent the center column, ball head, and $$worth of camera and lens flying out of the tripod legs. We thankfully had a firm grip on the center column, otherwise the camera would've mashed on the concrete floor.Manfrotto products are no longer what they used to be, and if the company started off today without their past reputation, no one would purchase from them. They're cutting corners with plastic pieces, while still keeping the prices higher than when they built quality products which didn't break.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy workhorse I use the this tripod for wildlife, macro and landscape work. It's a solid piece of equipment that's very good in windy conditions where I do a lot of my work along the Hudson River. It is easy to deploy in a variety of configurations, once you get a feel for it. I would not consider it for travel or backpacking as it is large and bulky. But if you have the time to set up your shot and plan on any lengthy exposures, consider this unit. It's aluminum so if you are set on the carbon fiber it's not for you. But is is light weight for it's size and reasonably priced. And it handles my Canon 5D MkIII with 400mm or 70-200 easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy tripod! Im an architectural Photographer and I needed a stable tripod that wouldn't move at all during my shoots as i need to layer so many images together for a final image. I paired this tripod with the new Xpro 3 way geared head for a fantastic combination. The grips on the legs also make it very convenient when carrying the tripod around. Best part- On my old manfrotto the legs would always slide up and into themselves even after tightening the leg clamps. These new leg clamps will not allow the legs to change length at any time which is awesome. very pleased with my purchase. A little heavy but I knew that. The legs are very thick and I chose not to go with the carbon fiber because its weight does not effect me very much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great balance between regidity and weight I purchased the Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 Tripod as a replacement for an old tripod. What drew me to this tripod was the build, the flexibility of leg adjustments, and the ability to hold my DSLR low to the ground. When I took it for a day at a local state park, I found that the rigidity was more than enough to meet my needs. No matter what I mounted on the tripod. Yet, the weight was comfortable even after five hours of hiking with significant elevation changes. Flexibility and performance make this a winner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid support Very good quality tripod. Great height without extension and is tall when extended. Perfect for me at 5' 11. When I need to use the extension (I know purists say its a no no) it is solid, I use the timer and I get the shot I need. The extension flips so you get many different perspectives of your subject which is very hand in landscape photography. It also lets you get low to the ground. The only downside is weight, I use it with a Kirk ball head so this wont go trekking with me. I knew that going into it so that doesn't take anything away from the performance of this solid tripod. Compared to the other ones in this category it is worth the extra $$

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tripod for long range shooting Purchased the MT055XPRO3 tripod for a stable platform for my D300s with a Sigma 50-500mm lens. It does a very good job of keeping the shooting platform very steady. Coupled with the 498RC4 ball head I have never had a better combination for telephoto shooting. The tripod legs are east to adjust to any terain and lock tight quickly. The center pole adjusts quickly and smoothly also. I can't find anything wrong with the tripod except it is a little heavy but I can deal with that given all of the advantages of the tripod. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a stable shooting platform

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great replacement for me This replaces a damaged carbon fiber tripod I bought years ago that was a compromise in both size and weight for use while hiking. It is much taller and perfect for my height. I have found it to be very sturdy, even in breezy conditions. Yes, I wish I had the money for one made of carbon fiber, but my hikes are fewer and shorter, so this one works. One complaint I do have about it, though, is that there is no rubber washer, 'O' ring, or something similar to help quiet the noise as each leg section reaches its max. length. It is a loud metal on metal sound, which defeats the ease of extending the legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Dandy 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
