The black Manfrotto 055XPROB Aluminum Tripod features the Manfrotto-patented horizontal center column feature, which allows the center column to flip quickly and easily from vertical to horizontal. By extending the column to its highest vertical position, it can be swung over to horizontal without removing the head or disassembling the column itself. The ergonomics of the leg-angle release mechanism and the quick action leg locks have also been improved.
The 055XPROB's flip-locks allow quick adjustment to the tripod's maximum height of 70.3" or minimum height of just 3.94". It is ideal for use with 35mm and light medium-format photographic cameras and video camcorders.
