The Manfrotto 755CX3 Tripod with 055 Photo-Movie Head & Q5 Quick Release (Grey) offers a complete tripod solution for HDSLR camera systems weighing up to 15.43 lb (7 kg), and facilitates fast and effective switching between still photography and videography.
The 755CX3 tripod is a MagFibre video tripod featuring carbon fiber leg tubes, aluminum column, and magnesium/aluminum castings. Featuring a 2-stage design (3 leg sections per leg), the video tripod offers a minimum height of 18.31" (46.5 cm) and a maximum height of 54.72" (139 cm). The rapid center column can further raise the maximum height to 64.57" (164 cm). For enhanced operability, the tripod features a built-in 50mm head bowl with a half ball leveling system locked by a detachable rotating grip. When the tripod is spread on uneven grounds, the leveling system, in conjunction with a bubble spirit level, allows you to level your camera without needing to make micro adjustments to each individual leg.
The 055 magnesium photo-movie head with the Q5 quick release is ideal for DSLR cameras with movie recording function. A unique Photo-Movie selector on the head allows you to quickly switch between still photography and movie recording modes. In Photo mode, you can smoothly and precisely turn the head in all directions like a ball head. The fluid cartridges ensure that there is no slack in movement. In Video mode, the tripod head provides a precise and fluid movement with friction control for panning and tilting. Equipped with a spring-loaded counter balance mechanism, the tripod head ensures optimum balance and helps for quick setup. A pan bar with a rest clip comes with the tripod head, and is reversible for right or left hand users.
