Part # 055CLB


The 055CL Classic is one of the most versatile and popular tripods in the Manfrotto range. This specific version is lightweight and portable enough to take in the field, ideal for a medium format and SLR view cameras both digital or traditional. Combined with a Manfrotto 3 way head it becomes one of the most popular support for spotting scopes in the world.
    • q-r camera plate dovetail

      The 'dovetail' camera plate is Manfrotto's most compact quick release system, suitable for compact up to light SLR cameras. Its advantage is that it is pushed inwards and upwards on the tripod head, ensuring a rock-solid grip.

    • q-r flip leg locks

      Flip lever leg locks make opening, positioning and closing fast and easy. The tension of the locking mechanism is user-adjustable, and all parts can be easily serviced or replaced.

    • retractable spiked feet

      Retractable spiked feet mean you can use this both outdoors (with the spike extended for better grip on soft terrain, moss, plants, etc) and indoors on delicate floor surfaces (with the rubber foot covering the spike to avoid damage and give more stable non-slip support)

    • digi series

      Part of the DIGI series of lightweight, compact supports for small digital point-and-shoot cameras

    • three-faceted column

    • secure tripod head plate

    • hydrostatic locking system

      Hydrostatic locking system

    • low centre of gravity
