More Information

Easily switch the tripod from vertical to horizontal position thanks to the 90° centre column mechanism, which is housed in the upper casting for compactness and can be quickly extended as required. Benefit from more shooting freedom for your photography and videography. In fact, you can switch orientation even with your camera attached so you can save time and keep your equipment in the desired position.

The legs of the 055XPRO3 tripod with head can be extended and adjustable quickly, and this is also thanks to the Quick Power Lock levers, which block and unblock each leg section. The QPL levers are specially designed to provide a more comfortable single-handed opening of all leg sections in one single movement for your convenience The QPL’s levers also offer more powerful locking of every leg section, ensuring your tripod is as rigid as possible.

Intuitive and ergonomic leg angle selectors allow each leg to be solidly and independently set to any of the preset angles, which also gives you more freedom to shoot according to your individual style. A bubble level is built into the top of the centre column for precise framing. This is freely rotating, which means it can be positioned wherever it is easiest for you to observe while you adjust your tripod. That means it won't be obscured by any of your equipment, or prevent you from seeing your camera controls.

The top casting of the 055XPRO3 has a handy Easy Link connector that is compatible with an accessory (such as an LED light, flash, reflector, or other piece of equipment) on an extending arm or bracket. Make your tripod a practical mobile studio. The X-PRO 3-Way Head has retractable levers which make it ultra-compact, and also has new friction controls on the portrait and tilt axes. These help to balance the weight of your camera equipment so that you can make adjustments with the locking knobs open. Once closed, they will lock everything into place for your next shoot.
