Manfrotto 055CXV3 User Reviews
“I shoot mostly wild life with 75 percent being birds, with my Canon 1dMark111 camera, mostly handheld. I needed a easily manuverable tripod support for my heavier lens, a canon 300 f2.8. This lens and camera, is a hefty load handheld.
I purchased a Wimberely Head Version 11 and attached to this Tripod, with camera and lens mounted,its a well performing combination. Support is stable and secure.” – By Jack

Manfrotto 055CXV3 Features & Specifications
This 3-section tripod combines professional performances with essential design. The 100% carbon fiber tubes provide the best rigidity and an extreme light weight. Carbon fiber tubes can be very different in quality, depending on the production process and the percent of carbon fiber material present in the tubes. Manfrotto chose to reach the maximum quality using 100% carbon fiber and the pull winding technology (a special production process able to maximize performance, resistance and reliability).
Manfrotto’s carbon fiber tubing is popular among outdoor photographers because it’s light in weight, but not everyone knows it’s also more rigid and supports heavier loads than aluminum – giving it a double advantage. MagFiber tripods have three pre-set independent leg angles for positioning flexibility and good reach of all intermediate heights between the stated minimum and maximum levels The improved spring-loaded, easy to use step mechanism offers greater stability and security than the CarbonOne push-button system it replaces.
