From: $50.00 plus insurance and GST
The Manfrotto MT055XPRO3-3W Aluminium Tripod with 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head is a 3-section support with a 3-way pan/tilt head. It has a load capacity of 8 kg and extends from 16.5 to 183 cm. Its legs are secured by the Quick Power Locks. These updated flip locks increase the tripod’s rigidity by 50%.
A redesigned centre column has a “one finger” operation, and includes an Easy Link attachment for attaching accessories such as an LED light or a reflector. The centre column can be positioned horizontally, allowing for low-angle and macro photography. The upper disc where a tripod head is mounted has been redesigned as well, and now has a bull’s eye bubble level that rotates 360° so you can locate it where you can see it. This allows you to level your camera on both the horizontal and vertical planes.
The MHXPRO-3W 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head is a compact pan/tilt head with retractable levers that can be extended as needed. Two knobs control the friction for the front-to-back and side-to-side tilt, allowing you to fine tune the movements based on the weight of your gear. Three leveling bubbles ensure your composition is level on all axes.
