496RC2: Medium size, lightweight, with quick release - perfect for amateurs and professionals.
The key feature of the 055XPRO3 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 055XPRO3 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 legs of the 055XPRO3 tripod 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 single-handed opening of all leg sections in one action. QPL's 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.
The 496RC2 is a professional's friend. Light and compact enough to slip into your bag without weighing you down, it also gives you full range of movement for complete control on every shoot. Weighing just 420 g, this reliable ball head can safely hold up to 6 kg, making it both portable and strong. Designed to be functional as well as practical, friction control enables you to pair with your matching equipment easily. And adjust to suit the environment precisely. Pan a full 360 degrees or tweak between a -90 degrees and +90 degrees lateral tilt to capture that ideal shot each and every time. And you can even work in temperatures spanning 60 degrees Celsius to -30 degrees Celsius. So whatever the weather, you will never get caught out.
