Capture New Perspectives

The Manfrotto 055 aluminium 3-section tripod's key feature is its 90° centre column mechanism, which allows the column to extend vertically as normal, or horizontally to open up a wide range of framing and shooting possibilities, making this an extremely versatile tripod, suitable for a wide range of photography and video 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. 

Easy Set-Up Due to Quick Power Lock System

The tripod's legs are also fast to extend and adjust, thanks to the Quick Power Lock (QPL) 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 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. 

The top casting of the tripod 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.

My Experience with the Manfrotto 055 has been very positive and definitely worth investing for a long term durable addition to any kit. Along with this, the tripod head is great to test out for a top-down setup.

Blown away by the quality !

This is probably the sturdiest tripod money van buy. It exudes quality to the finest trims an fittings. The 90° adjustable centre column is also a neat future. Honestly, you can't go wrong with this tripod. Also, being a Manfrotto product, you have the option of attaching dozens of accessories. All in all its money very well spent and it will last a lifetime.
