The best tripod in its class, the black Manfrotto Carbon Fiber Tripod is a part of the 055CX series. It is made specifically to meet the demands of professional photographers and serious photography enthusiasts. A highlight in this tripod is the carbon fiber tubing used in the legs. With great strides being made in production techniques – allowing for high quality 100% carbon tube structures – the 055CX series has a higher load bearing capacity. It has more range in terms of height while the overall weight is much lesser than the conventional tripods.
