Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit pairs a MT055XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod with a MHXPRO-3W 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head. Holding up to 17.6 lb, and with a maximum height of 72", the tripod features a Quick Power Lock System that allows you to completely extend the legs with just one hand. Once set up you can use the MT055XPRO3's rapid center column in standard vertical mode or swing it into horizontal position like a boom with Manfrotto's 90° column feature. Enlarged tabs on the individual leg angle selectors allow you to get down low for macro work with the column in horizontal mode. And once you're down there you can attach any of Manfrotto's flexible or articulated arms to hold lights or reflectors via the Easy Link plug built into the tripod's spider.

The MHXPRO-3W is a compact 3-way pan/tilt head with retractable handles that can be extended as needed. Two knobs control the friction for the front-to-back and side-to-side tilt, allowing you to fine tune the movements based on the weight of your gear. A 200PL quick-release plate is included with the head.

  • Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod

    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 XPRO 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate

    This XPRO 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head from Manfrotto has a load capacity of 17.6 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. It includes an integrated RC2 quick release cam lock and a 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate. RC2 compatible quick release plates such as the 200PL-14 can be removed from the head by pulling the cam lock's spring-loaded lever, which also allows the plate to be quickly reattached. The cam lock also features a safety catch to prevent the 200PL-14, or another compatible quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

    Cameras, sport optics, or camcorders that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the quick release plate before securing it to the pan-and-tilt head. The head can be rotated 360°, tilted 90° forwards or 30° backwards, as well as 90° sideways for portrait orientation. Each of these three movements function independently of each other, have dedicated control handles, and can be locked into place. In addition to integrating the ability to individually lock the movements by twisting each corresponding handle's rubberized grip, the telescoping control handles for both tilt functions can also be retracted while the head is not in use for more convenient storage or transport.

    To promote fast and repeatable device positioning, this XPRO 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head also includes a dedicated angle scale for rotational movements that is designed for easy visibility, as well as dedicated control knobs set under the telescoping control handles that can each be rotated to apply tension control to either the backwards and forwards, or sideways tilt movements at any time.

Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 reviews

MT055XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod with MHXPRO-3W 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tripod (with a couple of issues...) I love this tripod! The levelers for each axis are wonderful and the tripod can be adjusted to fit in just about any configuration you need! I've used it on rocks, right near the ground, and on a very steep hill with no problems. The issues: Be careful extending the legs. If you just let them drop, they will occasionally drop right off! I don't know if I just got a loose bolt or what... Also, be careful when you fully extend the center pole. I pulled mine out very quickly and the whole thing popped out and the pieces went flying. It took me a bit, but I did get it back together again and it works fine. Conclusion: This tripod and head are well worth the money, just be a bit gentle when opening it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product! My first experience with Manfrotto was when I purchased the 504HD Head w/546B 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod System a couple of years ago. I use a Canon FX105 and this tripod is much more than capable of handling the weight that my system requires... an awesome product for sure! I love their engineering, It is velvety smooth in all axis of movement. I find it funny when I am surrounded by remote broadcast TV video crews when their tripods/heads have less quality than mine. Maybe this is a personal thing... forgive me for that. :) I had never purchased a serious tripod for my Nikon D800E. It is a heavy camera, equipped with the battery pack in my particular configuration. I shoot a lot of controlled situations using portable studio lighting that requires a similar shooting angle... a perfect scenario for using a good quality tripod. I took the leap... I just ordered and received my MT055XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod with MHXPRO-3W 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head Kit. This is an awesome combination! I have been practicing with this rig and I can see that this system will enhance and ease my work load! Thank you Manfrotto and thank you B&H! A quality product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every cent! This tripod is the bomb! It will support the weight of my camera, the optional battery pack, and the flash unit with ease. It is heavy enough to hole the camera steady in windy conditions but light enough to carry on hikes and trips. I love the center colunm can be tilted to a horizontal position to enable the camera to be pointed straight down. This tripod is loaded with great features and is very versatile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just the right size Looking for a tripod that was heavy duty enough to keep camera secure during shooting, but light enough to drag around. Seems like this one is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't endorse this enough! There is absolutely nothing I can say about this tripod that I don't like. Great, solid, and easy to operate with the way it is set up. Really like it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tripod Really solid, with a versatile and easy-to-use head. It's a little heavy for travel, but that's my fault for not springing for carbon fiber...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exellent Tripod Very strudy, not heavy considering the weight it can handle. Amazing the configurations that are possible
Date published: 2016-06-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid tripod with quick leg extension/retraction Only a few uses so far, but great. Center tube extends up and rotates 90deg for portrait orientation.
