MH055M8-Q5 Photo-Movie Camera Head

The MH055M8-Q5 photo-movie head is developed to be an ideal solution for HD DSLRs with embedded video functions.  The Photo-Movie selector makes switching from shooting photos to videos quick and immediate.  In Photo mode, the head provides the speed and maximum freedom in all directions, like a ball head combined with an incredibly precise, smooth and controlled movement never experienced before, thanks to the fluid cartridges and an adjustable counter balance control.  In Video mode, a fully-featured video head allows for a precise and fluid movement for pan and tilt with all of the typical video settings, including friction control.  The pan bar is reversible for right or left hand users and it can quickly be removed and fixed on a tripod leg, thanks to the included rest clip.

755CX3 Tripod

Manfrotto's 755CX3 is a two-stage tripod that features a combination of low weight and high load capacity materials used for its construction, and a built-in 50mm half ball leveling system locked by a detachable rotating grip, which allows the camera operator to level the camera without needing to make micro adjustments to each individual tripod leg.


  • Three-faceted column
  • 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.
  • Manfrotto tubes are made of 100% Carbon Fiber in order to reach high quality standards and high levels of performance, rigidity and lightness.  Carbon fiber tubes can be very different in quality, depending on the production process and the percent of carbon fiber material present in the tubes.  Manfrotto chose to reach the maximum quality using 100% carbon fiber and the pull winding technology (a special production process able to maximize performance, resistance and reliability).
