Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 Tripod Legs

I have owned the previous version of this Manfrotto MT055XPRO3, which was then called the Manfrotto 055Xprob, for about 15 years and I can't kill it. It just keeps on keeping on and for me that is real value for money. Sure you can get a tripod for a lot less and you can also expect it to be at the tip pretty soon and you back to the shops to buy another one.

Generalising for a minute or two, there are two popular ranges (with heads etc) in the Manfrotto line up. The MT055 and the MT190. The primary difference between the two is that the MT055's are for tallish people with heavy gear and the MT190, well, the opposite. Having said that, have a read of our intro to the MT190 as it is not slouch.

The following overview of teh MT055Xpro3 video should answer any of your questions but if not then look below for the usual Manfrotto specifications.

The 055 redefines the 3-section aluminium tripod. Thanks to its size and shape, and to the materials used, the new 055 delivers an unprecedented level of stiffness.

Key Features:
The key feature of the 055XPRO3 is its 90 degree centre column mechanism, which allows the column to be extended vertically as normal, or horizontally to open up a wide range of framing and shooting possibilities; this makes the 055XPRO3 an extremely versatile tripod, suitable for a wide range of photography and video applications. The horizontal column mechanism is housed within the tripod's top casting for compactness, but it is easily and quickly extended whenever you need it. Switching between vertical and horizontal column orientation requires no disassembly, and can even be done with a camera attached.

The legs of the 055XPRO3 tripod are also fast to extend and adjust, thanks to the Quick Power Lock levers that block and unblock each leg section. The special design of the QPL levers allows a more single-handed opening of all leg sections in one action. QPL’s lever design also offers more powerful locking of each section, meaning the tripod is more stable and rigid than with traditional lever designs. Intuitive and ergonomic leg angle selectors allow each leg to be independently and solidly set to any of the preset angles, again allowing considerable positioning freedom.

A bubble level is built in to the top of the centre column for precise framing. The bubble level rotates freely around the centre column, so it can be positioned wherever it's easiest for you to see it while adjusting the tripod, and without it either being obscured by the mounted head and camera, or getting in the way of head or camera controls.

The top casting of the 055XPRO3 has an Easy Link connector for supporting a photo or video accessory (such as an LED light, flash, reflector, or other piece of equipment) on an extending arm or bracket, and making the tripod into a practical mobile studio.

The 055XPRO3 is made in Italy by Manfrotto
