Manfrotto MT055CXPRO3 overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Manfrotto MT055CXPRO3 reviews

    MT055CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 65.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Buy the aluminum version (at least for video) I own a number of manfrotto tripods and light stands.. they are decent quality for a decent price. This tripod is fine... but nothing more than fine. I own the aluminum version (2 actually) and with a light manfrotto fluid head for video on I honestly can't tell a difference in weight. It is certainly lighter... if I were to weigh them with a scale. However, I don't notice any real difference carrying them and working with them side by side all day. I also knocked off another star because the mechanism on center column feels cheap and and does not work smoothly. I'm not sure how long it will last.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First class tripod I have had this tripod for about a month and a half. I mostly use it for wildlife photography with a Canon 7D and Canon EF400 f5.6 L. The Sunpack tripod I had used previously was too flimsy for this combination and when the head broke off, I decided to follow the advice that professional wildlife photographers give, to not go cheap on your tripod. This tripod compared to my previous one is like bolting my camera to a block of granite instead of a blob of jello. It is a little heavier than I would have liked, but for the rigidity it provides, it is lightweight to equivalent alternatives. A great buy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong, cool features, small faults. I purchased this tripod with Manfrotto's new 3-way head and I love it despite a couple small issues. When adjusting the Q90 center post to the horizontal position you MUST be very mindful of the C ring. This ring acts as a stopper for the clamshell sleeve that slides up before the center post will rotate 90 degrees. If this ring becomes dislodged from its factory position the clamshell sleeve will slide completely out and come apart. I was shooting late at night when I tried to engage the Q90 feature only to lose some of its components to the pacific ocean. Now on my second MT055CXPRO3, I noticed that if you are used to the old Manfrotto leg locks it is very easy to pinch your fingers in the new improved leg locks. Those problems aside, this is an extremely cool tripod which looks great and performs even better, when used with some care when using the Q90. Hope this helps. It would have helped me,

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from watch your fingers... lightweight, but stable. Has a place on the collar to hang something on (I bring a mesh shopping bag to hang on it with whatever in it to weigh it down in windy conditions). The legs have clasps or as Manfrotto calls it: QPL leg locking system. You will get a finger caught in it a few times until you start to respect them, but, they are good, tight and firm (and noisy if you let them snap). I have used the centerpost's 90 Degree Centre column mechanism several times while taking macro shots. Very stable. It's a slight bit of a nuisance to slide the center post back into its normal position as you have to rotate it (line it up) in just the proper position before it will go down. Overall, I am definitely very happy with these legs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tripod now better with carbon I have an older aluminum 55 which has been my workhorse for the last 4 years but its heavy so the carbon fiber and more adjustable legs sold me on an update. It is everything I wanted.... 3 stage legs with levers and a center column that rotates 90 degrees. Its good BUT... center column is shy a couple of inches than my old one and the new lever locks are dangerous as they will nip and draw blood if you are not careful

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for This is a fantastic tripod! I upgraded from the 190XPROB I bought from Manfrotto a number of years ago. It's a little bit heavier and bulkier (which I actually like) than the 190 series and it's everything I expected from Manfrotto: awesome build quality, legs fall out quickly, and is as stable as it gets. I wouldn't buy a tripod from any other company than Manfrotto. If you're debating on whether to go with the carbon fiber or not with the MT055 legs, I HIGHLY recommend you choose carbon fiber. If you're a landscape photographer, a long day in the field carrying a tripod anything heavier than this will get very exhausting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tripod! I carry this tripod with me all the time. I do a lot of hiking to photograph waterfalls. It is light and fairly easy to carry. It is rock solid and stable. I have a couple of changes I would like to see. cushions for the main tubes. That would make more comfortable to carry and hefting over my shoulder. The center post tilt mechanism could be little better designed. I like the locking levers and carbon fiber. I would buy this again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tripod I love this tripod, very strong and solid. Can support heavy telephoto lens and camera up to 19 lb! I tried before MT199CXPRO4 but the last section legs are so small and I didn't feel like can support very good heavy telephoto lenses. The MT055CXPRO3 3 section legs are really solid like a rock and lightweight at the same time. I will recommended this tripod to every nature photographers, specially if you like to walk a lot into a woods and need lightweight and strong legs.
