Our opinion:

The latest version of Manfrotto's popular 055 series of tripods offers some improvements on its predecessors.

New quick power locks provide a quick and easy solution to locking the tripod in the desired position. An impressive maximum load of 9 kg (subject to an equally strong head) means that it is suitable for even the heaviest of equipment. 90 degree leg and column angles provide versatility and stability in any position.

The Easy Link attachment, allows to convert the new 055 into a portable photographic studio. It is possible to attach an (optional) arm with an LED light, a reflector, making lighting the subject much easier.

Lastly, the spirit level bubble rotates now, so it is always accessible, no matter how you've set up the legs.

Manufacturer’s Description
The 055 is the most popular and most imitated family of pro tripods on the market, but it's still unrivalled. Its balance of size, weight and stability makes it ideal for use both in the studio and out on location, and the range of tripod and kit configurations available, in both aluminium and carbon fibre, makes it extremely versatile. 055X models have aluminium leg tubes and centre columns, and aluminium castings; while 055CX models have carbon fibre leg tubes and centre column, and ultra-light magnesium castings.

Improved stability is the key innovation of the latest 055 family: our new Quick Power Lock system makes leg section locking more powerful to make the 055 a more stable and secure camera platform than ever before, even though QPL has also been designed for ergonomic single-handed, single-action releasing of all sections on each leg, making set-up faster too. Quick Power Lock's 50% increase in tripod rigidity gives the new 055 its extra payload capacity of 9kg (19.8lb).

All 055 models now have a completely redesigned 90? column mechanism as standard: the new mechanism is hidden inside the tripod's top casting until needed, saving space and lowering the head and camera closer to the central casting for greater safety and stability, and improved image sharpness. Combined with the 055's four independent leg angles, the new 90? column allows incredible flexibility of camera positioning.

An Easy Link attachment has also been added to the top casting of the 055 to convert it into a portable photography studio; an LED light, reflector or other accessory can be fitted to the Easy Link using an arm, taking the 055 beyond the boundaries of classic tripod functionalities.
