MT055CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod with MHXPRO-BHQ2 XPRO Ball Head with 200PL Quick Release System Overview

This versatile tripod kit from B&H Photo pairs the Manfrotto MT055CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod with the MHXPRO-BHQ2 XPRO Ball Head with 200PL Quick Release System. This kit provides a stable camera support with a load capacity of 19.8 lb. It extends from 3.5" to 71.4" and weighs 5.7 lb. The 90° 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 mounting plate has a bull's eye bubble level that rotates 360° so you can locate it where you can see it.

The MHXPRO-BHQ2 XPRO Ball Head is strong enough for most applications and ideally suited for this equally sturdy tripod. The XPRO lets you fine-tune your adjustments, thanks to separate knobs for both the ball and the 360° panning as well as a friction control knob for more exacting placement. The 200PL quick release clamp and plate allow for quick camera attachment and removal, and two bubble levels let you adjust your camera so the horizon is level. A numbered scale around the base of the head makes repeating exact pans an easy task.

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 XPRO Magnesium Ball Head with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate

This XPRO Magnesium Ball Head from Manfrotto features 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 instantly reattached. The cam lock also features a safety catch to prevent the 200PL-14, or another compatible quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

The XPRO Magnesium Ball Head with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate has a load capacity of 33.1 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. By loosening this XPRO Magnesium Ball Head's primary locking knob, its ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swiveled, angled, fully tilted, or returned to its upright position. Toward the ball head's base is a secondary locking knob that controls the ability to rotate the head 360°. An additional knob opposite the secondary locking knob can be rotated to apply tension control to the ball-and-socket joint's movements.

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.

MT055CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod with MHXPRO-BHQ2 XPRO Ball Head with 200PL Quick Release System Reviews

Very Happy

I'm very please with this purchase and as soon as I started using the tripod and ball head mount my photo shooting has improved. As a newbie I was concerned about the quality and I did a lot of research and comparing other products and decided on this for numerous reasons. I'm happy with this purchase and look forward to using it more and more.

Sturdy, Easy to use Tripod

For years I have used inferior tripods, this one is very sturdy and stable so pictures are sharp, not blurry. Quick to set up and just what I was looking for. I shopped in person and was not able to find one that was sturdy. After looking at many reviews, checking specifications and a few reliable referrals I purchased this one and am glad I did. It is fairly expensive but it should last for many years. I would recommend it to those who might have a slightly heavier camera 10-15 pounds this works good. I haven't tried it with my telephoto lens yet but from the experience so far it will perform as I expect. Using Nikon 810 and very happy with this purchase.

What an upgrade

I’ve been doing real estate photography for about a year now. My previous tripod, also carbon fibers, was a four section device. Very cumbersome to adjust the height. This unit is much easier to raise and lower. The ball head is considerably better in every way. Highly recommended.

Amazing tripod

I guess the only complaint I have is I have to pull out the lower legs. Mostly because the weight of the lowest section is so light it is not heavy enough to extend on their own. Other then that it is a rock solid tripod. Extremely happy with the Ball Head.

Locking....

Everything is great except it doesn't lock when open like those of the previous version design.

I would buy this product again.

No problems with MT055CXPRO4 carbon fiber tripod, light weight and sets up fast. The MHXPRO-BHQ2 XPRO Ball Head Plate mounting bolt came loose after about half hour of use, after some Loctite no further problems. This is my first ball head and I really like the speed of set up. I took it to the Ballon Fiesta and it worked great.

very nice upgrade from my 190CF

recently needed another tripod for my work, wanted something a little taller and more ridgid than my Manfrotto 190 4 section tripod. This was a great decision, lightweight, rigid, and fast to extend legs..

Holding Still

Have not had this tripod long, but have used it a few times since arrival. It’s larger and more steady than the one it replaced. The ball head holds position well once set. Would purchase this combo again!

Is there a hook on the center column to add a weight?
Asked by: Laura
No, it does not. This tripod has the capability for the center column to be extended up and then adjusted to be perpendicular. You do this by hitting a red button on the bottom of the center column where a hook would be.
