Manfrotto MT055CXPRO3 Overview

The Manfrotto MT055CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber Tripod is a 3-section support that replaces the 055CXPRO3 tripod. It has a load capacity of 19.8 lb and extends from 3.5" to 66.9". Its carbon fiber legs are secured by the Quick Power Locks. These updated flip locks increase the tripod's rigidity by 50% compared to its predecessor.

A redesigned center column has a "one finger" operation, and includes an Easy Link 3/8"-16 attachment for attaching accessories such as an LED light or a reflector via a compatible arm. 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.

Can l turn the center column of this tripod upside-down? (If not which model allows me to do it?)
Asked by: Sergio
No you cant turn the center column upside-down. to get closer to the ground you can move the center column right up and turn it to 90 degrees and splay the legs to their widest point.

I have a L bracket (Arca Swiss), will this fit the PL-200 or will I need a different L bracket?
Asked by: Nancy
This head is only compatible with Manfrotto type plates. You would have to get an Arca Swiss compatible ball head. You can click the link below to view; https://bhpho.to/2RLwy35

How stable is it with a video fluid head when panned left/right. Some very light tripods have had a tendency to lift up on one of the legs as I panned with a dampened head?
Asked by: ROBERT
Not the best choice but workable . The more resistance you dial into the fluid head the worse it gets. I've resorted to using my left hand to press down on the legs as I panned with my right. In this situation heavier is better. you could add weight to the legs. Three Matthews Boa bags, one on each leg, would improve the performance noticeably.

question

This tripod comes only with one screw to secure the head, is there a different column for this tripod with 3 screws or a better system to better secure a video fluid head like the mvh502ah?
Asked by: Jorge
I have no experience with fluid video heads, but the ball heads and the gamble I own all have a single screw. Im holding up cameras and lenses in the 10 pound range

question

What's the difference between the xpro and 054 magnesium ball head?
Asked by: Mark V.
If you are referring to the XPRO ball head vs the 054 head, then the 054 had an extra feature which allowed you to go beyond 90 degrees to 100 degrees when using the camera in portrait mode. Other than that, they are very similar in size and design. The newer XPRO removed that feature based on feedback from the user base.
