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

What's the best way to hook your backpack for weight from this tripod without the traditional center hook?
Asked by: Haven S.
There is a solid hook on the side of the main casting between two of the legs. You can hang your bag there by the handle.
