Brand: Bogen
Located in: Tripod Legs
Retaining all the features of the 055MF3, the 055MF4 is a more compact tripod geared to the traveling photographer. The 055MF4 folds to just a shade over 21 inches yet extends to just under 5 1/2 feet.

Light, simple, strong, and extremely versatile to position, the 055MF4 will comfortably support up to 15lbs and offers a minimum height of only 4.3 inches for low-angle shooting.

Without compromising on stability or rigidity of the tripod, Manfrotto engineers reduced the weight of the 055MF4 by utilizing carbon fiber legs with quick action lever locks in magnesium and resin. In addition, they incorporated the patended design of the 3021PRO series top spider which offers four leg angle settings, and converts the center column into a lateral arm.

The center column itself is of the latest generation of aluminum and resin materials. The low-angle adapter forms the top section of the center column and is easily detached by simply unscrewing the knob at the bottom of the column. This enables the head to be left mounted on the center column when switching between low-angle and normal shooting positions.

All parts are assembled using a proven pressure clamp technology for greater durability and in-the-field serviceability. To make transportation even easier, the 190MF3 is supplied with a hand padded carrying strap that can also double as a hook to hang weight and increase stability during extreme wind conditions.

  • Carbon Fiber three-faced tubes for the tripod legs
