Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 Overview

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

Good Value Great Features

By Martin

I bought this as a back up tripod and also to use in tighter shooting areas. It's a great tripod, I like the quick release leg locks. The center column that you can do overhead shots with makes it more versatile. My only critique is the knobs are small and feel kinda cheap. Two legs have a nice rubber cushion wrap on them but it would be better if all three had it.

Solid, very solid.

Heavy duty tripod and very stable. Much more versatile than any other tripod I own. Recommended.

Leg keeps falling off

By Kristi

I purchased the tripod in February 2022 and the leg has fallen off several times. The tripod seems to be very sturdy unless the leg decides to fall off during the middle of a shoot, which makes me look like an amateur. I have contacted Manfrotto to see what they can do.

Solid base

I like the design of this tripod. Insulating grips on the legs for those cold weather shoots. I am a fan of the clips rather than twist locks as I feel they are faster when you need to get set up in a hurry. The ability to get the tripod almost inches above the ground is going to come in handy. A solid tripod without breaking the bank.

Great quality

Very solid tripod. I feel safe that this unit can safely hold my $100k can' camera without issue.

It's well made and I love its ease of use.

I'd buy this one again if I had to do it all over again because it's well engineered. The materials used to make the thing are strong, but light. The rotation and tilt points move smoothly with the camera rolling or for quickly setting up the next shot. The legs adjust like a breeze. The leveler bubbles are easy to read. I feel it was worth the investment.

Quality and Quite Functional

The tripod is worth the investment. I have used it for flat or overhead images, as well as standard tripod uses. It is rugged and sturdy. I have no fear of my camera and lens falling from this tripod.

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.
