The MK055X Pro 3 Alu 3-Section Horizontal Column Tripod is one of the latest 055 tripod series that best corresponds to a photographer's need. Able to withstand a payload of 8 kg constructed in an aluminum material, the robust centre column mechanism can be set to 4 different angles (25°, 46°, 66°, and 88°) that you would prefer. The Quick Power Lock levers block and unblock each leg section for more sturdy stance that either photography or video accessory can be supported. The tripod has 9 cm folded length that can reach up to 183 cm maximum height and be folded to 65 cm, just enough length to focus on targeted images whatever terrain there is. This 3 leg section tripod only weighs 3.5 kg. 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. It includes 498RC2 ball head which allows the camera to be positioned freely and quickly, then blocked solidly in place using the convenient single locking knob, ready to shoot in an instant.


Product Features in Detail

four leg angles
Four pre-set independent leg angles give the tripod great positioning flexibility and versatility, and allow all intermediate heights from the stated minimum to maximum levels to be reached. Stability is assured at all 4 angles by the spring-loaded step mechanism.

Q90° column
Q90° quick centre column system. This model include the patented Q90° system. This ingenious system allows the user to move the central column from vertical to horizontal position in just seconds without having to disassemble the column.

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. . 

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. . 

Ultra-compact retractable levers
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. . 

Ergonomic leg angle selector
This tripod features a newly designed ergonomic leg angle selector. This new angle selector improves the comfort and the precision in use.

Tubes: 100% Carbon Fibre
Manfrotto tubes are made of 100% carbon fibre in order to reach high quality standards and high levels of performance, rigidity and lightness. Carbon fibre tubes can be very different in quality, depending on the production process and the percent of carbon fibre material present in the tubes. Manfrotto chose to reach the maximum quality using 100% carbon fibre and the pull winding technology (a special production process able to maximise performance, resistance and reliability).
