|Product features in detail|
The Manfrotto MK055XPRO3 tripod and MHXPRO-3W three way head kit together offer unprecedented stability and rigidity in all types of photographic situations. Building on Manfrottoâ€™s excellent product line, the kit exceeds the performance of its predecessor and can support a large amount of weight - a huge 8 kg of payload to be precise.
Weighing in at 3,500g, the kit can take an 8 kg safety payload and has a height ranging from 9-183 cm. Its closed length is 74 cm, and it has a maximum height of 153 cm with the centre column down. Leg tube diameter is 30-26-22.5 mm.
The 3-section Manfrotto MK055XPRO3 tripod is constructed from aluminium so is robust, yet lightweight. It has a compact 90Â° centre column mechanism contained within the tripodâ€™s top casting which allows for both vertical and horizontal extension, so is perfectly suited for a variety of photo and video applications.
The Quick Power Lock levers allow you to quickly and easily adjust all leg sections in one movement with just one hand, and also provide more powerful locking of each individual section. Leg Angle Selectors allow each leg to be independently set to any of the preset angles for maximum flexibility. Leg angles of 25Â°, 46Â°, 66Â°, 88Â° are available
A useful bubble level is built into the top of the centre column so you can accurately frame your shots, and the bubble rotates around the column, so it wonâ€™t be obstructed by the camera and mounted head or obscure the camera or head controls.
There is an Easy Link connector on the top casting which lets you connect photo and video accessories, such as flashes, LED lights, or reflectors etc. onto a bracket or extending arm, turning it into a portable photography studio.
The Manfrotto MHXPRO-3W three way pan / tilt head comes with a quick release camera plate and patent-pending retractable levers which give it a super-compact profile. It features new friction controls on the tilt and portrait axes which balance the weight of the camera equipment and let you make precise framing adjustments with the locking knobs open, which only lock everything once you are ready to take a shot.
