The Manfrotto MK055XPRO3 Tripod and X-Pro 3-Way Head kit comprises of a 3 leg section aluminium tripod and 3-way head. The 055XPRO3 is an updated version to the popular 055 range of tripods, with 50% more rigidity and a new QPL (Quick Power Lock) leg locking system to ensure your equipment is fully stabilised under any conditions. The main feature of the 055XPRO3 is its 90° centre column mechanism, which allows the column to be extended vertically, or horizontally to open up a wide range of photography and video applications. The X-Pro 3 way head features a brand new design for photographers who want maximum precision in a portable and lightweight build. The X-Pro 3-way head has retractable levers which make it ultra-compact, and also offers new friction controls on the portrait and tilt axes, to help balance the weight of camera equipment, so that fine framing adjustments can be made with the locking knobs.

The 90-degree Centre Column
The key feature of the 055XPRO3 is its 90° 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 Quick Power Lock levers
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 comfortable 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.
Rotating Bubble Level
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.
Easy Link Connector
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.
X-PRO 3-Way Head
The X-PRO 3-Way Head has retractable levers which make it ultra-compact, and also features new friction controls on the portrait and tilt axes, to help balance the weight of camera equipment so that fine framing adjustments can be made with the locking knobs open, only locking everything down once the shot is ready.
The 055XPRO3 and the X-PRO 3-Way Head are made in Italy by Manfrotto.

Expensive but you get what you pay for
I live near the coast and believe me it gets pretty windy round hereespecialy on the moors and hill tops This tripod is rock solid even with heavy lenses attatchedAlthough my camera has built in stabalisation I need that support (at times I can't even stand up!)It's easy to use and has a great feature of being able to be set up to use at ground levelThe head pans effortlesly It's not lightweight so don't expect to chuck it over your shoulder and march off for miles you wont forget that you have!But I wouldn't be without it
About Me Getting started, Hobbyist/Enthusiast
This is a wonderfully versatile tripod with great unique features. It is heavy for long treks but the weight gives extra stability.
Manfrotto does not disappoint
By Nikon Yogi
Feels and behaves like a decent quality piece of gear. How the tension adjustment wheels last over time is the only question. I suspect they will crack or break long before anything else.
from South Wales
Sturdy tripod with great features. Quality control form factory could be better as tripod arrived with a string out on one of the adjustment arms
Excellent product from manfrotto
Does exactly what it is designed and constructed for
Does everything I need
By Agent Orange
from here there and everywhere.
Very Good TripodQuick release legs work very well and legs can go flat to get ground level.Quirky central column works well so far. Not sure what life expectancy it will have though? its a decent weight - I prefer some weight as less likely to blow about in the wind like some carbon fibre's.

Not cheap but well worth the money
I guess we all have a tripod in a cupboard somewhere, seldom seen and invariably left at home because it's too big, too small or just not up to the job. I recently needed to capture some interior shots in a low-light environment where flash would have killed the atmosphere. Out came the wobbly wonder and guess what? It really wasn't up to the job! The head wobbled, the leg locks didn't lock and it was rather too short for comfort (I'm 6 feet 5 inches tall and have dodgy knees) so bending down is very uncomfortable. In searching for a replacement, many things were considered: max height, min height, weight, capacity and ability to carry accessories. This tripod has it all. For me it's very near perfect. The head is great, easy to adjust and has good capacity. The base is just as good and will go high enough for me to need a box to stand on! No, it doesn't wobble up there either. The end result was a good shoot with great pictures from long-time exposures. The bottom line is it's well worth the money but it isn't perfect - don't trust the spirit levels!
