Manfrotto MK055XPRO3 Tripod and XPRO Ball Head with 200PL Plate


A 3-section aluminium tripod and a versatile, portable magnesium ball head

The key feature of this kit is the tripod's 90° centre column mechanism, which allows the column to be extended vertically as normal or horizontally. This makes it an extremely versatile tripod, suitable for a wide range of photography applications. The horizontal column mechanism is housed within the tripod's top casting for compactness, but it is easily and quickly extended whenever you need it. Switching between vertical and horizontal column orientation requires no disassembly, and can even be done with a camera attached.

The legs of the 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 allow a stronger and more comfortable single-handed leg lock grip. The sections of each leg on the tripod can be released from their folded position in a single movement. The QPL lever design also offers more powerful locking of each section, making this tripod more stable and rigid than traditional lever design models. Intuitive, ergonomic leg angle selectors allow each leg to be independently and solidly set to any of the preset angles, afford considerably greater positioning freedom.

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 while you adjust the tripod and without it either being obscured by the mounted head and camera.

The tripod’s top casting has an Easy Link connector to support a photo or video accessory (such as an LED light, flash, reflector, or other piece of equipment) on an extending arm or bracket, and transforming it into a practical mobile studio.

The new XPRO Ball Head is the perfect union between innovative solutions and design. It has a new triple locking system which guarantees camera position stability, friction control helping the user balance the weight of camera equipment and two levelling bubbles to precisely frame composition. Moreover, its new polymer rings have substituted that unpleasant, messy grease, ensuring smooth, accurate and less jerky camera movement. XPRO Ball Head is portable, lightweight and reliable thanks to its magnesium body and comes with the Manfrotto 200PL plate.
