The stylish and durable Manfrotto 055 range guarantees camera stability more than ever before. The Quick Power Lock increases power in the leg locks, giving the tripod extra payload capacity which outperforms its predecessor. The new 055 can support an outstanding amount of gear: in any position, a maximum load of 9kg is guaranteed. The tripod is 50% more rigid than its predecessor.
The key feature of the 055XPRO3 is its 90° centre column mechanism, which allows the column to be extended vertically as normal, or horizontally to open up a wide range of framing and shooting possibilities; this makes the 055XPRO3 an extremely versatile tripod, suitable for a wide range of photography and video applications. The horizontal column mechanism is housed within the tripod's top casting for compactness, but it is easily and quickly extended whenever you need it. Switching between vertical and horizontal column orientation requires no disassembly, and can even be done with a camera attached.
Set-up Speed and Ease of Use
Higher locking power doesn’t bring a compromise on ergonomics: QPL’s single-hand opening mechanism enables quicker, more comfortable set-up. The bubble level also rotates 360° so it’s always in the best position for the user, without ever falling inconveniently under a head locking lever.
Unlimited Versatility and Creativity
The new horizontal column mechanism combined with the 4 leg angles allows the new 055 to smoothly reach whatever camera position you have in mind, always maintaining the safety and stability of your gear. The Easy Link attachment converts the new 055 into a portable photography studio. By simply attaching an arm with an LED light, a reflector, or any other accessory, the new 055 goes beyond the boundaries of classic tripod functionalities.
Manfrotto XPRO 3-Way Head
The Manfrotto X-Pro 3-Way Head is a compact, precise and reliable 3-way photographic head. It features retractable levers which make it help to make it extremely compact and so easy to pack and carry with you. When the levers are retracted and folded for transport, the space occupied by the head is only 13 x 13.5 x 13.5cm (5.1 x 5.3 x 5.3"). This head also offers friction controls on the told and portrait axes which will help to balance the weight of the camera equipment so that fine framing adjustments can be made with the locking knobs open, only locking everything down once every thing is ready. There are 3 leveling bubbles on the head, so composition can be levelled precisely in-camera, reducing post production work.
A sturdy build with rugged aluminium body for reliability and durability, the X-Pro supports up to 9kg (17.6lbs), but weighs in at only 1kg (2.2lbs).
