The included 324RC2 grip ball head offers a unique way of quickly unlocking, moving and locking your camera in place. You can frame and reposition the head freely and frequently to get the perfect photo, you simply grip the head to move the camera and as soon as you release, it locks securely in place. The head features 360° panning, -19°/ +90° lateral tilt, and -90°/ +90° front tilt.

Manfrotto MT055CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod

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 324RC2 Ball Head with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate

This 324RC2 Ball Head from Manfrotto has a load capacity of 8.8 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. It includes an 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 instantly reattached. The cam lock also features a safety catch to prevent a quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

The 324RC2 features a ball-and-socket joint with an easy-to-grip control handle. By squeezing the control handle's integrated trigger, the ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swiveled, angled, fully tilted, or returned to its upright position. A thumbwheel set within the underside of the control handle can be rotated to apply tension control to the ball-and-socket joint's movements. Once the squeeze trigger is released, any adjustments to the position of the ball-and-socket joint are locked into place.

Cameras or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the 200PL-14 quick release plate, which measures 1.7 x 2.1 x 0.4" and has a rubberized, non-slip surface. The 324RC2 is initially configured for use with the right hand. An included hex key allows the RC2 quick release cam lock to be repositioned along with the control handle, enabling left-handed use.

question

Could you please tell me the major differences between MT190CXPRO4 and MT055CXPRO4? Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
The main difference between the 190 and 055 tripod series is the load capacity. The 055 is the next series up from the 190, and has a larger load capacity. The MT190CXRPO4 has a load capacity of 15.4 lb, while the MT055CXPRO4 has a load capacity of 19.8 lb. The MT055CXPRO4 is also slightly taller (Max height of 66.9 vs. 63).

question

Greetings! I have a Really Right Stuff BH-55 ballhead, which would pair up very nicely with this tripod, except for one thing: the BH-55 has a 2.9 base diameter, which would appear to cover the bubble level on the Manfrotto's plate. What is the diameter of the circular top plate on the MTO55CXPRO4, and if smaller that 2.9 , is it possible to have a larger-diameter plate?Thanks! Alain
Asked by: Anonymous
Hi I have this combo with the BH-55. It doesn't really cover the bubble level and the bubble level is still fully usable. Hope this helps!

question

Will the RRS BH-55 work on this tripod, given that the diameter of the ball-head is larger than the diameter of the tripod plate?
Asked by: Norman
Yes, this ballhead will work though it has a larger diameter.

question

I need a good stable, travel tripod for wild life photog. I currently have a Nikon D800e with Sigma 150-600mm Sport lens and Manfrotto/Bogen 3421 gimbal. I am also 5'7 and cannot bend forward for any length of time so tripod needs to be tall enough with very little center column extension. I typically shoot beyond 500mm on my lens. Will this tripod excel for me or is there another model? Thank you.
Asked by: Dennis L.
I purchased this tripod at the end of February and have been totally happy with the decision. It is a very stable tripod. I have used it with my Canon 70-200L lens and it has worked very well. I am not familiar with the gimble support you mentioned but I think the tripod would work well for you. When spreading the legs out it takes a little practice to get the hang of it. I have found that you need to back off the legs slightly to get the leg latches to release in order to spread the legs to the next position. If you purchase the four section leg model you should have more than enough height without extending the center column. The tripod is very light and easy to carry in the field. With your big lenses I might suggest that you hang your camera bag from the built in hanger for additional stability although I have not found this to be a problem. The tripod is very stable by itself. As I also own one of Manfrotto's professional studio tripods (which is quite heavy) I have found this to be an exceptional tripod for the field and carrying to various sites. You will not be disappointed with this tripod. Construction is rugged and will hold up well in the field. I hope this helps you.Jim
