Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 CF Tripod
Manfrotto's 055 series has a solid history and their New 055 series goes even bigger. The flip-style leg locks have been re-designed for even more stability while still maintaining their ease of use. The center column now also offers a 90 degree tilt which offers further height flexibility as well as a simple switch from vertical to horizontal shooting. These new features are added to what we already loved about this Manfrotto line.
The 4.41 pound tripod legs remain able to handle nearly five times their own weight at a capacity of nearly 20 pounds of gear thanks to a carbon fiber and magnesium construction. Additionally, the horizontal column allows for shooting less than 4 inches from the ground or as high as 66.93 inches.
