The Manfrotto MT055CXPRO4 Black Carbon Fiber Tripod is a 4-section tripod delivers maximum rigidity from the lightest components; a masterpiece of engineering designed for photographers who want the best from their tripod and need it to be easily transportable. The 100% carbon fibre tubes and new QPL leg locking system increase the tripods rigidity and absorb vibrations, stabilizing camera equipment under any conditions. Carbon fibre tubing and magnesium castings also reduce the weight of this tripod compared to the equivalent aluminium version. The 4-section leg design allows this tripod to fold to a more compact size for easier transportation.
The Manfrotto MT055CXPRO4 Black Carbon Fiber Tripod is its 90° centre column mechanism, which allows the column to be extended vertically as normal, or horizontally to open up a wide range of framing and shooting possibilities; this makes the Manfrotto MT055CXPRO4 Black Carbon Fiber Tripod an extremely versatile tripod, suitable for a wide range of photography and video applications. The horizontal column mechanism is housed within the tripod's top casting for compactness, but it is easily and quickly extended whenever you need it. Switching between vertical and horizontal column orientation requires no disassembly, and can even be done with a camera attached.

The 4-section legs of the Manfrotto MT055CXPRO4 Black Carbon Fiber Tripod make it extremely compact: together with the height saving of the new horizontal column mechanism, 4-section legs help to reduce the closed length of this tripod - a boon for any travelling photographer. The legs are also fast to extend and adjust, thanks to the Quick Power Lock levers that block and unblock each leg section. The special design of the QPL levers allows a more comfortable single-handed opening of all leg sections in one action. QPLs lever design also offers more powerful locking of each section, meaning the tripod is more stable and rigid than with traditional lever designs. Intuitive and ergonomic leg angle selectors allow each leg to be independently and solidly set to any of the preset angles, again allowing considerable positioning freedom
A bubble level is built into the top of the centre column for precise framing. The bubble level rotates freely around the centre column, so it can be positioned wherever it's easiest for you to see it while adjusting the tripod, and without it either being obscured by the mounted head and camera or getting in the way of head or camera controls
The top casting of the Manfrotto MT055CXPRO4 Black Carbon Fiber Tripod has an Easy Link connector for supporting a photo or video accessory (such as an LED light, flash, reflector, or other pieces of equipment) on an extending arm or bracket, and making the tripod into a practical mobile studio
