Product Description

Product Description

The new 055 carbon fibre 3-section tripod delivers maximum rigidity from the lightest components; a masterpiece of engineering designed for photographers who want the best from their tripod and need it to be easily transportable. The 100% carbon fibre tubes and new QPL leg locking system increase the tripod's rigidity and absorb vibrations, stabilizing camera equipment under any conditions. Carbon fibre tubing and magnesium castings also reduce the weight of this tripod compared to the equivalent aluminum version.

Key Features:

The key feature of the 055CXPRO3 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 055CXPRO3 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.

The legs of the 055CXPRO3 tripod are also fast to extend and adjust, thanks to the Quick Power Lock levers that block and unblock each leg section. The special design of the QPL levers allows a more comfortable single-handed opening of all leg sections in one action. QPL's lever design also offers more powerful locking of each section, meaning the tripod is more stable and rigid than with traditional lever designs. Intuitive and ergonomic leg angle selectors allow each leg to be independently and solidly set to any of the preset angles, again allowing considerable positioning freedom.

A bubble level is built in to the top of the centre column for precise framing. The bubble level rotates freely around the centre column, so it can be positioned wherever it's easiest for you to see it while adjusting the tripod, and without it either being obscured by the mounted head and camera, or getting in the way of head or camera controls.

The top casting of the 055CXPRO3 has an Easy Link connector for supporting a photo or video accessory (such as an LED light, flash, reflector, or other piece of equipment) on an extending arm or bracket, and making the tripod into a practical mobile studio.

The 055CXPRO3 is made in Italy by Manfrotto.

I've had the classic Manfrotto XPRO190B legs for the last 4 years and they were showing their age, lots of dunkings in sea and fresh water have taken their toll. I had a few criteria when looking at buying a new tripod, slightly lighter legs ( I'm not getting any younger! ), needed something a little taller as the 190's where always just a little too short and a little more stability.

I got two of those sorted. It's absolutely rock solid, the second you to set it up out of the box, you can see the effort that's gone into the design and feel how rock solid it is. Despite its light weight feel it masks serious stability. With the legs full out and the centre column down the viewfinder is roughly at around 5' 11", raising the column gives you something like about another 12-18 inches! More than adequate for most average size people.

Once I'd have loaded my 410 gear head and my L-bracket the weight more or less came back to where it was, not overly bothered by that as the frame is a lot larger and as you rest it on your shoulder for carrying it feels comfortable.

I've not had a chance to test it out in cold weather but I have noticed that the legs don't feel anywhere near as cold as the 190's so hopefully when Winter comes around that's when I should get the benefit.

I am extremely pleased with it and highly recommend it to anyone who's thinking of stepping up to carbon legs.

As a previous owner of the beginner tripod, the Manfrotto MKC3-H01, this was a big leap to a more durable, stable and lightweight tripod in the £300 to £400 price range. All I can say is I was not dissapointed.

It's superbly crafted, from it's Carbon Fiber tripod legs, to it's super stiff leg clamps that grip without a fidget.

The height of the tripod is perfect for someone of my size (5 foot 9 / 175cm) with its center column fully extended, and can rotate 360 degrees and bend at a 90 degree angle, perfect for both videographers and photographers.

Overall, this is the 'Bang for Buck' tripod that will certainly not let you down upon arrival.
