Note that you will almost always need a tripod head in order to use this tripod.

The Bogen-Manfrotto 055MF3 MagFiber is an ideal tripod for many applications. A 'beefier' tripod to the 190 series, the 055MF3 provides professional photographers with a tripod that's still very light in weight, simple to use, strong, and extremely versatile to position.

The 055MF3 supports up to 15 pounds, offers a minimum height of only 4.3 inches -- which is perfect for low-angle shooting, and can extend to over 5.5 feet when needed.

The two-part center column switches between normal and low-angle work without forcing you to remove the camera and head every time you need to change position.
