Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 CF Tripod
Professionals often have to worry about supporting more than just their camera as there's often extra lighting equipment to consider as well. The Manfrotto 055 tripod can help with an attachment arm allows for the placement of something like a slave flash for example. This tripod is also pretty versatile, with four different leg angles and a height range which extends from 3.54 to 66.93 inches. The center column also rotates which provides photographer for even more positions to shoot from. Constructed with carbon fiber and a new rigid locking system, the tripod doesn't sacrifice stability in any way to maintain its lightweight design. This support system will hold nearly 20 pounds of equipment, but the legs themselves weigh only a mere 4.41 pounds.
