The main feature of the Manfrotto 055XPRO3 tripod is the 90 ° mechanism of the central column, which allows the central column to be lifted both vertically upwards and extended horizontally, significantly expanding the possibilities of framing and shooting; Thanks to this, the Manfrotto 055 XPRO3 tripod is a very versatile tripod suitable for a wide variety of photo and video shooting. For compactness, the central column mechanism is located in the upper part of the base of the tripod, but it easily and quickly extends if necessary. The translation of the column from the vertical to the horizontal position does not require disassembly and can even be done with an attached chamber. Thanks to the Quick Power Lock lever locks on each leg section, they can be quickly pulled out and adjusted in height. The special design of the QPL levers makes it easier to handle them with one hand; from the folded state, sections of each leg of the tripod can be opened in one motion. Their design also provides a stronger fixation of each section, which means that the tripod is more stable and rigid compared to the traditional design of the levers. An intuitive, ergonomic selector angle of the legs allows you to securely fix each leg, independently of each other, at any of the specified angles, expanding the positioning capabilities. For precise alignment, a bubble level is built into the upper part of the central column, freely rotating around the central column, so that when you install the tripod you can position it where you prefer to look at it, so that it does not cover your head or camera, or you have access to head and control the camera. The Manfrotto 055XPRO3 top tripod molded part has an Easy Link connector for supporting photo and video accessories (such as a LED lamp, flash, reflector, or other equipment) on a retractable handle or bracket, turning the tripod into a practically mobile studio.
