Manfrotto MT055CXPro3 overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit combines the Manfrotto MT055CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber Tripod with the XPRO Ball Head with Top Lock Quick Release System. The MT055CXPRO3 is a 3-section support with Manfrotto's Quick Power Lock System that allows you to completely extend the tripod legs with just one hand. The rapid center column has a "one finger" operation and can be used in standard vertical mode or can be swung into horizontal position like a boom with the 90° feature to get down to a minimum height of 3.5". 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 included XPRO ball head has separate knobs for both the ball and the 360° panning, as well as a friction control knob for more exacting placement. The Top Lock quick release system is an Arca-type compatible clamp and plate that allows the camera to be inserted from the top rather than slid in from the side. A safety lock prevents the plate from being accidentally released. Two bubble levels on the head let you adjust your camera so the horizon is even. A numbered scale around the base of the head makes repeating exact pans an easy task.

  • Manfrotto MT055CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber Tripod

    The Manfrotto MT055CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber Tripod is a 3-section support that replaces the 055CXPRO3 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 Manfrotto XPRO Magnesium Ball Head with MSQ6PL Quick Release Plate

    This XPRO Magnesium Ball Head from Manfrotto features an integrated Arca-type clamp and a MSQ6PL Quick Release Plate. Arca-type compatible quick release plates such as the MSQ6PL can be attached or removed from the Arca-type clamp located at the top of the ball-and-socket joint by tightening or loosening the clamp's locking knob. Within the recessed surface between the clamp's jaws is a retaining pin. This pin prevents an installed quick release plate from accidentally sliding off when the clamp is opened.

    The XPRO Magnesium Ball Head with MSQ6PL Quick Release Plate has a load capacity of 22.1 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 MSQ6PL Quick Release Plate which measures 2.8 x 2.2 x 0.4".

Manfrotto MT055CXPro3 reviews

MT055CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber Tripod with XPRO Ball Head with Top Lock Quick Release System is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, but a great tripod. I had to save up, but it was worth it. Finally a tripod that is as tall enough for me, even though for a good landscape I am usually having to bend over since I like to keep things close to the ground. Heavier then my travel tripod, but not by much and I find it worth carrying this carbon fiber tripod with me where ever iIgo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid tripod Solid sturdy tripod that worked really well this past weekend. The quick release clamps made adjusting the legs easy. The ball head clamped tight right where I wanted it to. Didn't get a chance to try the tripod with my Sigma 150-600 Sport lens so I may update this review when I get that set up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a Great Start I bought this rig less than a month ago, and have used it on several occasions with great success. I've set it up as a normal tripod, and as a low level tripod, using the 90 degree arm. But I was stunned when I was setting up for a recent outdoors macro shoot; the center mast completely separated from the legs, and parts flew everywhere! I managed to locate all the parts for the central collar in the surrounding grass (there are only 4, though one part is quite tiny), and eventually managed to reassemble them. But the same thing happened when I tested extending the center mast! I eventually tightened the snap ring that holds everything together, and so far so good. I think that I'm set...I HOPE that I'm set! I contacted Manfrotto, and was told that I should send the tripod to their service center in Chandler, Arizona if I had any doubts about its sturdiness and reliability. I'm holding off for the time being. It's a shame that this happened...I really expected better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality This tripod isn't cheap in any sense of the word. �It is money well spent. Very easy to operate. �The controls are firm and the tripod is light enough to strap on and go. I would recommend this tripod to both professional and beginner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it and would recommend it. Wow I love my new Manfrotto 055CX pro tri-pod and Xpro ball head. I got it and used it on the eclipse this last Monday. That is all I have had time to use it but I did love it. The $140.00 off plus the $140.00 rebate made it affordable for me as I am retired. The rebates and discounts go away August 31ST.
