Excerpt: If you are reading this, you are probably already familiar with Manfrotto quality. The MT055CXPRO3 tripod legs are amazing. So versatile and they are rather light in weight too, even with the Mandrotto 054 ball head I purchased with this.
Excerpt: First off, I'm going to say that this is my first really really good tripod. The legs are very light, and I coupled it with the Manfrotto 054 ball head which is heavy, but built like a tank. I've used this tripod a total of 4 times. I was having a great time with it.
Excerpt: I love this tripod! It's lightweight but very sturdy and easy to use. I enjoy doing long exposures and this is the perfect tool to allow me to do that without having to worry about camera shake.
Excerpt: I bought this Tripod to replace a very old Aluminium Manfrotto 055 which is still usable except the replacement clamps are not exactly the same as the original. This Tripod is half a kilo lighter and has features which I required.
Excerpt: I use this tripod for indoor home photos (Real Estate). Easy to level,easy to adjust,light weight. East to adjust from portrait to landscape... Center height adjustment is great for these indoor shots
Excerpt: My previous tripod was an aluminum Manfrotto 055 from the early '90s. I miss the way I could swivel the center column while it was loose on those old legs and I miss the beefier, more durable feel.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Serviceable
Excerpt: I am getting used to this tripod and it seems to be reliable and I like the light weight it has, but wonder about shooting in the wind? I'd think one would have to weight it down in some way? I am used to handles and getting used to just holding the camera is new to me.
Excerpt: This tripod gives excellent support for landscape and macro photography. The center column easily switches from vericle to horizontal and back again. The leg locks operate quickly and easily, but you must be careful to avoid getting a finger pinched.
