Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 overview

  • 1Description

The Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 Photo-Movie Tripod Head with 755XB Aluminum Video Tripod Kit from B&H is a professional-level yet affordable pair of camera support products that serves photography as well as videography. In that regard the tripod & head kit might be the perfect choice for executing hybrid video/photo projects with a DSLR camera.

The magnesium head features a fluid cartridge for smooth movement. It moves freely in its photo mode, like a typical ball head. In video mode, motion is restricted to the appropriate dimensions: pan and tilt. Equipped with a reversible pan bar, the MH055M8-Q5 features a continuously adjustable pan & tilt drag that starts at zero. Counterbalance is adjustable, and the system supports loads up to 12.6 lb.

The three-section 755XB tripod reaches a maximum height of 65" (70.3" with the head attached), and it features flip-lever leg locks and a built-in 50mm bowl for +/-15° leveling.

  • Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 Photo-Movie Tripod Head with Q5 QR Plate

    The Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 Photo-Movie Tripod Head offers optimal function for still photo shooting as well as videography. Primarily designed for DSLR cameras with movie shooting ability, the tripod head features a Photo-Video selector for quickly switching between the two modes.

    In Photo mode, the MH055M8-Q5 head offers free movement in all directions just like a typical ball head. Equipped with fluid cartridges and an adjustable counterbalance control, the tripod head provides precise, smooth, and controlled movement.

    In Video mode, the head restricts all-direction movement to precise pan-and-tilt operation, which works well with videography. The MH055M8-Q5 head comes with a pan bar and offers fluid movement as well as friction control. The pan bar is reversible for right- or left-handed users and can be quickly detached. An included rest clip allows the pan bar to be attached to a tripod leg after being removed. A Q5 quick release plate is included.

  • Manfrotto 755XB MDeVe Aluminum Video Tripod

    Supporting up to 15.4 lb, the Manfrotto 755XB MDeVe Aluminum Video Tripod is an extremely versatile two-stage aluminum tripod that was designed specifically for run-and-gun videographers using Mini-DV or DVCAM camcorders where rapid, reliable setup and breakdown is paramount.

    The 755XB has been redesigned to offer better ergonomics of the leg-angle release mechanism, and improved quick action leg locks. Flip lever leg locks clamp down tightly in one motion, yet are adjustable for wear over time. The built-in 50mm leveling ball provides rapid column leveling on uneven terrain, and leg tubes are grooved and keyed for torsional stability during setup and use.

Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 reviews

MH055M8-Q5 Photo-Movie Tripod Head with 755XB Aluminum Video Tripod Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted! Received my combo today and am impressed with it, however one annoying thing Manfrotto could have fixed was the lack of a knob to tighten the pan bar bracket, rather than having to find a coin. I have 2 other Manfrotto tripods and both have proper levers to tighten. The other thing is why is there no rubber seal to stop the tripod screw from falling out of the base plate?? All other plates have that small round rubber seal, this one doesn't!
