Manfrotto 055XPROB overview

  • 1Description

The Manfrotto 055XPROB Pro Tripod with 808RC4 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head builds on the success of the 3011/3021 series. It features the Manfrotto-patented horizontal center column feature, which allows the center column to flip quickly and easily from vertical to horizontal. By extending the column to its highest vertical position, it can be swung over to horizontal without removing the head or disassembling the column itself. The ergonomics of the leg-angle release mechanism and the quick action leg locks have also been improved.

The 808RC4 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head features improved ergonomic design plus a counter spring system. Borrowed from the video industry, this feature makes it possible to move the camera smoothly while framing the picture, as it helps to balance some of the camera's weight. In addition, it absorbs the shock to bodies and lenses when reaching the end stop of the head movement.

Center column can be quickly and easily swung from vertical to horizontal without any disassembly
Horizontal column feature allows the tripod to reach extremely low positions
3-faceted center column which totally eliminates column rotation
Redesigned more ergonomic flip locks, with only 45° of movement
Leg warmers on 2 legs ease handling in extreme weather conditions, and help to protect the legs
Four leg-angle settings (25, 46, 66 & 88°)
One or both head springs can simply be turned off by the two separate control knobs (i.e., when using an extremely lightweight camera system)
Newly designed handles to fit comfortably in the hand, even taking into consideration the size of fingers

    Manfrotto 055XPROB reviews

    055XPROB Pro Tripod Legs (Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid!! I use it in the field, in my home studio. It's a little heavy but that is what I was looking for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Combo, Great Value Originally had this tripod with a ball head but had to replace due to theft. Wasn't thrilled with the ball head and after talking with the rep went with this setup. Very Happy with 808 head, the pan and tilt is smooth and has decent adjustable spring on it as well. The head also feels very sturdy with my Canon 7D w/battery grip and 400mm lens which has some weight too it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality tripod Purchased as an upgrade from the manfrotto action tripod. Definitely a big step up.
