From the manufacturer
Quick power locks with high locking power ensures maximum camera stability.
High Payload: 9 Kg / 19.8 lbs.
0 degree column and 4 leg angles allow to reach any position.
Quick Power Lock
With the new 055 camera stability is assured more than ever.
Compared with the classical locking levers, the QPL allow to apply extra locking power to the leg locks which, in turn, increase the stiffness of the tripod and enable it to support a higher payload.
Higher locking power does not mean compromise on ergonomics: QPL have a 1 Hand Opening mechanism which cuts the set up time and makes the operation comfortable.
The Easy Link attachment, allows to convert the new 055 in a portable photographic studio.
By simply attaching an arm with an LED light, a reflector, or any other accessory, the new 055 goes beyond the classic boundaries of tripods’ functionalities.

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.
The Q90 center column is nice, but it doesn't work very well if it's high off the ground because the balance gets thrown off easily, even with a lighter weight lens--you'll either need to widen the legs out unnecessarily far down, or use sand bags (while potentially also putting it on a table for ground shots) to make it do what you want it to. If you're buying this because of its Q90 feature, you can probably find a better one, even if it costs more. Though, let's be real--it's probably really hard to find an *incredible* 90 degree column tripod that can handle the height and the weight we want it to. Otherwise this tripod, though slightly heavy, is worth the money for its sturdiness, reliability, and durability.
During week two of use the center column started slipping and would not hold its position forcing numerous re-shoots and aggravating amounts of time lost while working. The final nail in the coffin came soon after when the tension screw quit working all together, not the center column cannot be locked into place at all, negating the need for a tripod all together because no matter how level you were the entire column just wobbles around making a truly still shot next to impossible.
If you value your time and money, avoid this tripod at all costs.
I walked with the tripod on my shoulder for a bit over a mile today and I could feel the weight after awhile but I'll take that over a clumsy light tripod every time! Great product!
