Suitable for Professionals and Enthusiasts

The Manfrotto 055XPRO3 Tripod + X-Pro 3-Way Head combines two feature rich product to create a kit ideal for professional and serious enthusiast photographers and a wide range of photography and video applications.

90° Horizontal/Vertical Centre Column

The 055XPRO3 features an innovative 90° centre column mechanism that allows the column to be extended vertically or horizontally, opening up a wide range of framing and shooting possibilities.

Simple Design

The horizontal column mechanism is hidden within the tripod's top casting for unobtrusive compactness. Switching between a vertical and horizontal column orientation is a simple affair, requiring no disassembly, and can even be done with a camera attached.

Fast Tripod Set Up

The legs of the 055XPRO3 tripod are also fast to extend and adjust, thanks to the Quick Power Lock (QPL) levers that lock and unlock each leg section confidently. The special design of the QPL levers allows a more comfortable single-handed opening of all 3 leg sections in one smooth motion for ultra-fast camera set up.

Independent Leg Angle Selectors

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 pre-set angles, again allowing considerable positioning freedom.

Rotating Bubble Level

A bubble level is built into the top of the centre column for precise framing and perfect horizons. The bubble level rotates freely around the centre column, allowing it to 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.

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.

Independent Pan and Tilt Adjustment

The X-PRO 3-Way Pan and Tilt Tripod Head features a clever retractable lever design which allows it to fold-down into a sleek, space saving solution.

Adjustable Friction Control

The head features friction controls on the portrait and tilt axes to help balance the weight of camera equipment, allowing fine framing adjustments to be made to your composition quickly and accurately. Once your framing is set, simply locking everything down for maximum stability.

Includes Quick Release Plate

The Manfrotto X-PRO 3-Way features a rugged aluminium construction and includes a 200PL quick release plate for fast, convenient transition from tripod to handheld shooting.

The 055XPRO3 and the X-PRO 3-Way Head are made in Italy by Manfrotto.
