The Manfrotto 755CX3 tripod is a video tripod featuring carbon fiber leg tubes, aluminum column, and magnesium/aluminum castings. It has 3 leg sections, a minimum height of 18.31" and a maximum height of 54.72". The rapid center column can further raise the maximum height to 64.57". For enhanced operability, the tripod features a magnesium photo-movie head with a Q5 quick release plate ideal for DSLR cameras, and a built-in 50mm head bowl with a half ball leveling system locked by a detachable rotating grip - this system allows you to switch between photo and video mode where in photo mode you can smoothly turn the head in all directions like a ball head, whereas the video mode allows fluid panning and tilting for smooth video. When the tripod is spread on uneven grounds, the leveling system, in conjunction with a bubble spirit level, allows you to level your camera without needing to make micro adjustments to each individual leg. Equipped with a spring-loaded counter balance mechanism, the tripod head ensures optimum balance and helps for quick setup. A pan bar with a rest clip comes with the tripod head, and is reversible for right or left hand users.
