Is it  just the angle of the photo, or have you managed to remove/find a replacement for the centre column from the tripod? I've often wanted to do that with mine, but the replacement Manfrotto short column doesn't seem worth it and I don't feel like getting out the hacksaw!  :-\
You can also detach the bottom of the column and mount it on the shoulders to have a tripod with no central column.....

No you can't. Not with the 055/190 XPRO models you can't.
I did not know that....

As you can see in the above picture, you can do it with the 190CX3 model...
I have a 190CX4 (which is almost identical to 055CXPRO4, except for the size and weight) ... if the the 190CX3 is anything like 190CX4, I don't see why it won't be possible.
I think the cx4 and Cx3 are the same except for the number of sections of legs.... Check it out and see if yours detaches.... It's a little button on the base of the column.....
The best camera is the one in your hands
