Manfrotto 055MFV carbon fiber tripod legs - This is a tripod with the features most commonly requested by birders and nature photographers. All the advantages of carbon fiber plus leg warmers that help make carrying the tripod around more convenient in extreme weather conditions or after a full day out in the cold.

Four different leg angles (25 degrees, 43 degrees, 73 degrees, 90 degrees)

Two foam rubber leg grips for cold weather use.

Quick action leg lever lock.

Leg sections use three-faceted tubing for greater anti-torsional resistance.

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.

Solid tripod/head plate has an industry standard 3/8'' screw and three angled grub screws which stop the head from unscrewing accidentally in use and also block unwanted panoramic rotation or play between tripod and head.

Anti-rotation tubing and leg collars make for a tripod (or monopod) that's easier and faster to open, position and close. Manfrotto uses several different types of anti-rotation system - on Magfiber and Digi series tripods, the elliptical or three-faceted shape of the concentric tubes means they cannot rotate, while on round-tubed tripods small protrusions down the length of the tube keep sections perfectly aligned.

Manfrotto's carbon fiber tubing is popular among outdoor photographers because it's light in weight, but not everyone knows it's also more rigid and supports heavier loads than aluminum - giving it a double advantage.

Lightweight magnesium is used for die-cast parts. Magnesium has a density of 1.74g/cm3 as opposed to aluminum's 2.70g/cm3 - a 35% reduction. Despite its lower weight, magnesium is more rigid than aluminum, and has the same strength per volume.

MagFiber tripods have three pre-set independent leg angles for positioning flexibility and good reach of all intermediate heights between the stated minimum and maximum levels The improved spring-loaded, easy to use step mechanism offers greater stability and security than the CarbonOne push-button system it replaces.
