Product description

Style:Alu 3 Section

The professional 055 redefines the 3-section aluminum tripod, delivering an unprecedented level of stiffness. The key feature of the MT055XPRO3 is its 90° column, which allows the column to be extended vertically or horizontally. 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 055XPRO3 tripod are also fast to extend and adjust, thanks to the Quick Power Lock (QPL) levers. The special design of the QPL levers allows single-handed opening of all leg sections in one action. Intuitive and ergonomic leg angle selectors allow each leg to be independently and solidly set to any of the preset angles, allowing positioning freedom. A bubble level is built in to the top of the center column for precise framing. The bubble level rotates freely around the center column, so it can be positioned wherever it's easiest to see. The top casting of the 055XPRO3 has an Easy Link connector for supporting photo or video accessories (such as an LED light, flash, or reflector) on an extending arm or bracket, transforming the tripod into a practical mobile studio. Technical Specifications: Closed Length 24.02”; Leg Angles 25°/46°/66°/88°; 3 Leg Sections; Legs Tube Diameter 1.18-1.02 0.89”; Load Capacity 19.84 lbs; Maximum Height (with Center Column Down) 55.12”; Maximum Height 66.93”; Minimum Height 3.54”; Weight 5.51 lbs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Tripod!!!
By Amazon Customer on October 24, 2016
Well worth the money!
I won’t go into specs about the Manfrotto 055. If you are looking for these, simply look at the description. I did however, attach a few pictures comparing the size of the tubing of this model compared to a Manfrotto 190XB using a digital caliper. Huge difference that really isn’t shown by the photographs.
This tripod is impressive to say the least. I already own a Manfrotto 190XB and have used this as my go to tripod for at least five years. I have gotten into night photography recently and have a few dslrs, but only the one tripod. Well, it was time to purchase a new addition to my gear. Impressed with the sturdiness, quality, and build of the 190XB, I decided to stick with the Manfrotto brand.
I decided on the Manfrotto 055 based on my prior experience with Manfrotto, along with the many reviews available online. Upon arrival, I was instantly impressed with the build of this model. It is “supersized” compared to my 190XB. See the attached pictures. This product is built to top quality standards. A bit heavy of a tripod to use as a walk around, but if you travel by car, or motorcycle and only plan a few hundred yards walk to your subject, this shouldn’t be an issue. However, if you plan on backpacking this tripod, be ready for the extra weight of this model. It will wear you down within an hour or so. It is by no means small or ultra-lite.
This is extremely sturdy and needs no extra weight to keep it steady on a breezy day. I am 100% Satisfied!
Manfrotto isn’t cheap stuff. Top of the line for the money spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommend This Affordable HD Tripod
By D. Horst on July 10, 2019
I needed a heavy duty tripod to handle my 18 pound camera, lens and gimbal combination. There are lots of tripods out there, if you haven't noticed, and I spent about a month researching and reading reviews. Most of the recommended HD tripods were 2 to 3 times more expensive than the Manfrotto 055, and essentially priced outside of my budget. I already own a smaller Manfrotto 190XDB that is super rugged and sturdy. I was actually using it for my heavy lens, but needed to extend the center column to get to the height I needed. So, after reading all I could find about the 055, I decided to take a chance and purchased it. I couldn't be more pleased! It proved to be very rugged and sturdy and handles my camera equipment easily. It is easy to transport and sets up quickly. I highly recommend the Manfrotto 055 tripod for all photographers in need of a tripod for heavy camera and lenses.

1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely disappointing, design of locking teeth appears to be very weak
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 4, 2017
Ordered from amazon warehouse deals on cyber Monday and got an incredible price from amazon, arrived a week later in original box and nicely packed as usual from amazon. Initial impressions were it was nice heavy and solid out of the box, Unfortunately the item was defective on arrival as I discovered one of the legs wouldn’t lock into place as one of the teeth that hold it has been snapped off. Somewhat troubling considering I would have been placing thousands of £ worth of gear on it which is why I settled on the 055 as it’s renowend for its quality however looking at this it doesn’t make sense for them to make one set of teeth weaker than the rest by seating a bolt between them. Legs also didn't appear to be the same length. One leg seemed to be 10/15mm longer than the other two, I then noticed as per another reviewer's 1 star review the locking clip was almost completely unseated, upon pulling the leg completely separated, absolutely shocking quality for a £200rrp product (See pics). I can't buy a replacement till I am refunded but if I am completely honest I don't think it will be a manfrotto now. Quite disappointed that I could not just opt for a direct replacement as it now means I will probably have to wait for about two weeks without a working tripod (a week for refund and another to order a replacement), first time I have been let down by Amazon in this regard. :(
