Product overview

Manfrotto MT055XPRO3

This Manfrotto aluminum tripod is extremely versatile and suitable for use with a large number of digital cameras. Going from 7 cm to 178 cm height, with this Manfrotto tripod you can easely shoot low and top angle pictures. In addition, for extremely low angle shots, it includes a low angle adapter at the bottom of its center column.

It is offering presets at 25°, 46°, 66°, and 88°for the leg angle helping to be conveniently set up at different heights when shooting. This allow each leg to be independently set to any of the preset inclinations.

It folds down to 61 cms, making it very easy to carry everywhere.

The best of the 055XPRO3 is its 90° centre column that allows the mechanism to be extended vertically or horizontally to open up to a wide range of shooting options. This is really easy to extend whenever you need it, and can be even done with an attached camera.

It is equiped with a bubble level which is built at the top of the centre column. You can rotate the bubble level around the centre column, making very easy to set the tripod in the desired position without having something in the way to block your view.

At the top it has an Easy Link connector which helps to support a flash or any other accessory.
