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.

Great design

A very safe and convenient tripod for my camera, which is very simple to carry and install

After 40 years I needed a new one.

This tripod replaces my first Manfrotto Tripod I Got in 1982. I like how I can pick it up and the legs stay apart and i can set it down with just one hand. Easy to open up and make taller. I would like the centre post longer , i think you can get an extension and i will be looking for one. I have always used the camera on the right side of the tripod for vertical shots so with the gear head I have to mount the camera backwards. Its works good that way. I find the gear head more solid and no movement. i like it allot. I shoot School photos and i like how a little run of the nob is all i need to centre the children and when you have 600 a day to do, this is a good head to have on the tripod.

Smooth and rock steady

Great construction and build. Very smooth and durable quality feel. Great angles and easily made with no hassles. Awesome product paired up with my Manfrotto pan/tilt head.

Great tripod for studio work, wouldn't use it for travel personally

The best tripod I've ever had.

I was really surprised about how sturdy and functional this tripod is. This is my first real professional tripod. And you can definitely tell the difference. It is either to see why some videography and photography come out looking so nice. The equipment does make a difference.

Solid & Stable Tripod

Solid, stable tripod for studio and location work. The center column is strong and durable, despite what some other reviewers have to say. I suggest reading the instructions before use to avoid unnecessary breakage of this well-constructed tripod.

Super rigid, simple and durable construction. Can't go wrong with this tripod. Isn't super light weight and does pack down as small as some. Great tripod for when the walk isn't to far.

Well made and solid

After looking at travel tripods and reviews of them, I decided to stick with a standard slightly larger aluminum tripod. I have used Manfrotto in the past but this is a very nice upgrade to a traditional model. I particularly like the ability to raise and rotate the center column into a horizontal position. I also like the two rubber coverings on two of the legs to protect from the cold. I wish the third leg also had the same rubber covering. There is an old saying about tripods, there are two types of tripods ones that are easy to carry, and good ones. This falls into the latter category. While it is not light it is substantial and can support my 4 x 5 field camera and Hasselblad without any problem. I married this with the 3-way tilt pan head. I like the retractable handles on the three-way head. I thought they would be a little too short but they work quite nicely.

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.
