The Bogen/Manfrotto 055CXV3 View Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs is a special version of the 055CX3 tripod with the features most commonly requested by birders and nature photographers. In contrast to the standard 055CX3 model, this model doesn't have the split center column, but does have leg warmers which make carrying the tripod around more convenient in extreme weather conditions or after a full day out in the cold.
Thanks to innovative production techniques - which allow for high quality 100% carbon tube structures - the 055CX series guarantees a higher load capacity and an increased height with a lighter overall weight (-20%) thanks to a completely new design, which allowed to lighten the components.
3-faceted aluminum center column which totally eliminates column rotation
Redesigned ergonomic flip locks
Four leg-angle settings
