what's different between MT055 PRO3 and this? plz share this original image.
Asked by: Srithi
The Manfrotto 055-series are heavier tripods with thicker legs, for more strength and stability. The PRO3 stands for the 3-section variant of the tripod and has the ability to extend its column laterally as well as vertically.

question

Hello, Will I be able to use this tripod with NikonD5000 and D750? Thank you.
Asked by: Yelena P.
This is a very sturdy tripod. Somewhat heavy if you plan on hiking with it - although, I do for short hikes less than 1 mile one way. I use it all the time with a PAN head. You will need to purchase a Manfrotto tripod head that meets your needs. All the best. Ron

question

Will this work with the Induro BHD0 ballhead?
Asked by: Michelle G.
The tripod is the 3/8 screw. If that matches your desired ball head then you are all set but the B&H salespeople know everything so write them. I do like my new tripod.
