Manfrotto 055CX3 User Reviews
“An excellent tripod. It stood up very well to the rigors of sea-watching, wind and rain on a recent trip. Its size and weight allows easy packing in luggage. “ – By Carol Thompson
Solid. Light. Smooth leg action. What else is there in a tripod?
“Reasonably compact (though if you’re going to hike with it, maybe look at a 4-section leg model), quite light for being as beefy as it is, and the good quality and level of “finish” you’d expect from Manfrotto. Legs extend very smoothly and lock solidly into the different angles. For the price, I couldn’t find a better CF tripod. “ – By Jeff Vier
Recommnded over the more popular 055CXPRO3
“Stability is the key strength of this tripod. If you use your camera for long exposures, very detailed work, and or heavy camera setup then you might want to get this Tripod over the other two carbon fiber tripods in the same series from Manfrotto. The reason being the PRO attachment, which allows for the vertical center column to go horizontal, is less stable than the fixed center column included with this tripod. If stability is not an issue then nothing beats the pro head in speed and convenience. “ – By Abdulrahman Aljabri
