The solution for precise, stable framing and shooting. The 055XPRO3 tripod is ideal for photographers and videographers looking for more flexible shooting. Thanks to its versatile 90° centre column mechanism, it can be extended horizontally or vertically in only a few seconds. The horizontal column mechanism is easily extendible, which means you can perform that all-important shoot at the last minute. Fold it away easily in the tripod’s top casting so you can store it as compactly as possible. Another great benefit of this photo tripod is that you won’t have to disassemble it when you switch between horizontal and vertical orientation. Save even more time when you’re on a busy schedule.
You can adjust the tripod legs in virtually no time at all, and with the Quick Power Lock you’ll be able to block or unblock each leg section to open them single-handedly in one movement. That means you can keep your tripod as rigid as possible and start looking forward to sharper photos.
The 055XPRO3 tripod’s Easy Link connector supports a video accessory such as an LED light or reflector, which can be quickly attached to the extending arm or bracket. Use the bubble level to frame and shoot as precisely as possible. Because it rotates freely around the centre column, you’ll be able to compose your photos and videos so that neither the equipment nor the mountain head obscure your view. Turn your tripod into a versatile mobile studio, and never let anything get in the way of that perfect shot.
The Manfrotto 500 Fluid Video Head with flat base is lightweight, and built with a wider platform for HDSLR bodies and a sliding plate which travels to balance your camera. It ensures smooth shots and fine control with up to 5kg of equipment.
The head has professional fluid cartridges on both pan and tilt axes to ensure that every camera movement is smooth, controlled and precise. It’s the most compact head in Manfrotto’s successful Bridging Technology™ range.
It comes with a side lock system, allowing the camera and sliding plate to click quickly into the head from above, instead of needing to be aligned and slid in from the back. The side lock system also makes it quicker and simpler to lift the camera out of the head from above.
The head has a pre-set counterbalance of 2.4kg, but is able to support equipment of up to 5kg. It has one Easy Link 3/8” connector to allow an external monitor or other accessory equipment to be fitted.
The flat base mount with a standard 3/8” thread makes the head versatile for different support combinations (tripod, slider, jib or crane).
