With its ingenious design, it allow you to almost nearly get your camera on the floor while still maintaining a secure quality hold on the tripod. Again if you have purchased the Manfrotto 701HDV Pro Fluid Video Mini Head we recommend pairing it with the Manfrotto 055XPROB Pro Tripod.
From the Manufacturer
- Faceted center column eliminates column rotation
- Built-in low angle adapter in the center column for ground level shots
- Leg warmers on 2 legs ease handling in extreme weather conditions, and help to protect the legs
- Four leg-angle settings (25,46,66 & 88°)
- Maximum height (with center column down), 56″
The 055XPROB makes the famous Manfrotto-patented horizontal center column feature even easier to use. By extending the column to its highest vertical position, it can be swung around to horizontal without removing the head or disassembling the column itself, so switching between framing and positioning setups is more convenient than ever. The ergonomics of the leg angle release mechanism and the quick action leg locks themselves have also been greatly improved.
