Don't buy this. Literally the first time we tried to pivot the center column to the 90 degree position, an internal plastic piece snapped and sent the center column, ball head, and $[$]worth of camera and lens flying out of the tripod legs.
I bought this tripod for use with a spotting scope, a chronograph and a camera. It came fully assembled and ready to go. I have used it in all 3 roles and it works better than expected. The next test is to take it on a hiking trip and see how it performs in difficult terrain.
This unit is really good in almost every way. The only issue I have is that the height adjustable center colum never really fully locks. Even when you screw the clamp down as hard as you can a bump will knock it out of wack. There is always a slight back and forth on the pan axis.
I have had my MT055xpro3 tripod for a couple weeks now and have put it to some good use on recent outings to Yellowstone NP. It's a sturdy mount and has no problem handling the weight of my 7D MkII w/ 150-600mm lens.
Just as another reviewer experienced, I also had a leg fall off while extending the legs. It was due to the weight of the legs, and the force that is experienced when you let the legs slide open and suddenly stop at the end.
I had a set of 055XPROB for years. Using them daily doing real estate photography (3-6 shoots a day). They were great, a tank, loved them. Unfortunately, they ran out of gas recently so I needed new legs. Figured I'd stay with Manfrotto and go with what replaced these. Wish I hadn't!
Amazing build quality. If you really want to shoot like pro I would highly recommend this.
This is a great tripod for the price and combo! The gear head is awesome, the tripod is nice too but when extending my leg the other day it completely flew off and almost broke my mark iii and tilt shift lens.. in front of the client I was shooting for.
Easy to use, very sturdy. I added a fluid video head to it and it works great.
If you do any art copywork (paintings, drawings, etc.), this tripod and geared head are exactly what you want. The geared head is heavy but well made and allows you to finely tune your composition so that you are completely level to the ground and artwork. Skip the ball head, you'll go nuts.
