055 Aluminium 3-Section Tripod + 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head
This 055 3-Section Aluminium Tripod with 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head from Manfrotto is a versatile camera support kit with a load capacity of 8 kg and a maximum height of 153 cm, or 183 with the centre column extended. The legs are secured with Quick Power Locks, an easy to use flip lock system that increases the tripod's rigidity by 50%.
The tripod also features a redesigned centre column with "one finger" operation, and can be positioned horizontally as well as vertically, for low-angle and macro photography. An Easy Link attachment allows additional accessories such as an optional LED light or reflector to be easily attached. The upper disc where the tripod head is mounted has also been redesigned, and now has a bull's eye bubble level that rotates 360° so that it can be located within view.
Included with the tripod is the MHXPRO-3W 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head, a compact pan/tilt head with retractable levers. Two knobs control the friction for the front-to-back and side-to-side tilt, allowing you to fine tune the movements based on the weight of your gear, and three levelling bubbles ensure your composition is level on all axes.
