The Manfrotto X-PRO 055 3 Section Photo Tripod 055CXPRO3 has been designed to deliver maximum rigidity using only the lightest of 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 increases the rigidity of the Manfrotto 055 X-PRO Tripod and absorbs vibrations, stabilizing camera equipment under any conditions. Carbon fibre tubing and magnesium castings also reduce the weight of this tripod. The key feature of the Manfrotto 055 X-PRO Photo Tripod is its 90 degree center 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 top casting of the Manfrotto Carbon Fiber 3 Section X-PRO 055 Tripod 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 Manfrotto 055 X-PRO 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. The bubble level in the Manfrotto X-PRO 4 Section 055 Aluminum Tripod rotates freely around the center 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 Manfrotto X-PRO 055 Tripod w/ 4 Sections 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.
