Manfrotto MT055CXPRO4 overview

  • 1Description

The Manfrotto MT055CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod is a 4-section support that replaces the 055CXPRO4 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 MT055CXPRO4 reviews

    MT055CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Tripod with versatile features Very fairly priced and good utility. The leg locking feature is great - no turning/tightening - this makes for much faster setup if moving from location to location to shoot (like realestate interiors). We have the older version as well and while there are a few improvements here (rotating level, stiffer leg locks), the older version is easier to use - especially the leg angle buttons which on this new model are much harder to operate. We have Gitzo and RRS tripods also, and they are rock solid, but no where near as convenient when requently changing shooting locations. For the money and convenience, this Manfrotto is hard to beat and is very rigid.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It has good and bad features Rock solid tripod but it has several issues that need to be addressed. It uses a spring retaining clip washer to keep the center section from pulling out of the tripod. The retaining clip has fallen off and the whole center section then pulls away from the legs. It has happened twice now, once in the dark in Iceland and yesterday again in a studio. Fortunately I was able to find the clip both times and reassemble the tripod. I am considering replace the tripod just because of this issue. The second issue is the levers, easy to pinch your fingers with them. This issue is more of an annoyance than anything else. Very light weight and very sturdy tripod but the poor design of the retaining clip is the Achilles heal of this tripod.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great tripod, one major flaw! I would give this 5 stars without a doubt except on very simple design flaw that can ruin your entire photo journey quickly! The little (probably .02 cent) clip on the bottom of the extender popped off the very first time I used it in the field. The first time! When that retaining clip comes off the collar basically explodes into pieces. Ridiculous for a tripod of the caliber and cost. Again if that one little issue was designed better it would be 5 star product. Everything else is extremely well build.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from MT055CXPRO4 Manfrotto Tripod Review I recently purchased this tripod for the purposes of both fashion/portrait/landscape photography. It is a very sturdy tripod. I was choosing between this and the tripod below which was a bit cheaper but for the extra $ this was definetely the right choice. The legs are easy to manage and I love the 90 degree feature that allows you to rotate the head. It is fairly light weight which is perfect for travel purposes too. I would suggest this tripe for anyone looking for versatility that is still in a decent and affordable price range.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Addition Excellent stability and ease of use. I had an older aluminum 055 with the screw type leg locks and the flips locks are a huge time saver. I went with the 4 section since I travel often and this is more compact than the 3 section. The level indicator rotates which comes in handy when setting up for pano shots. I use a 410 gear head combined with this tripod works well for me. Very stable and precise for architecture. This is my forth tripod and hopefully my last for many years. My main reasons for purchasing was the 4 section and flip locks. The carbon fiber was just on impulse but glad I did - nice to save some weight on those hikes. When converting the center column from vertical to horizontal there is a red plastic piece that rises with the column and it seems a bit flimsy and out of place for the rest of the tripod. Besides that every component is very well made in my opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tool I currently own 7 Manfrotto tripods and recently added the new MT055CXPRO4 to my collection. It very solid and holds well at any angle yet it's light weight enough to carry or pack. The new leg clamps work well just like they describe and the new center stem is nice to work with. I mounted the new XPRO 3-way head on this unit but I have the 3 section model with an 055 ball head that works well too. Overall, I am very happy with Manfrotto products and the support from B&H. I'm sure the price could scare a few people away but with a truly get what you pay for!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from good while it lasted. I am a amature photographer who focuses on wildlife, mainly birds. I typically used the tripod with a nikon D300 with Tamron 200-500mm and a Manfrotto 393 Heavy Telephoto Lens Support. The weight of these items falls well within the 19.8 capacity listed on this site. The tripod functioned very well with limited use for the first year I owned it.However while on vacation the piece that expands to hold the head mount to the top portion of the center post broke. As a temporary solution I super glued the piece in place. I have since returned to using my old aluminum tripod, as I don't trust my repair. As B&H quickly responded that they do not carry the replacement parts I sent an email request to Manfrotto. That was two weeks ago and I have yet to receive a reply. The local dealer I bought tripod from has since gone out of business so I do not expect to get warranty, I am just trying to buy the replacement parts. At this point I am not impressed with the level of service offered by Manfrotto.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packed with features This is a great tripod for macro work with it's 90 degree center column. The center column is very tight in any position, which was a concern of mine but i'm glad I took a chance. Leg clamps work great. automatic leg angle locks are a great feature. the only downfall is it's weaght compared to other tripods of the same size and load capability.
