Manfrotto 190XPROB Aluminium Tripod
The Manfrotto 190XPROB aluminium alloy professional tripod makes Manfrotto's famous patented horizontal centre column feature even easier to use. Following the 190XPROB's recent re-design, you simply extend the central column to its highest vertical position, and it can then be swung round to the horizontal position - without removing the head or disassembling the column itself. With the 190XPROB, switching between framing and positioning setups is more convenient than ever. Couple this with the improved ergonomics of the leg angle release mechanism and resigned quick action leg locks, and its easy to see why the Manfrotto 190XPROB is one of the world's best selling tripods!
Manfrotto's 190XPROB is winner of the TIPA European Accessory of the Year and has also been awarded the Digital Camera Buyer "Editor's Choice" accolade. To quote from Digital Camera Buyer,
"Compact, light, rigid and well-designed, the Manfrotto 190XPROB shows how a little extra investment in your trusty tripod can reap big rewards"
Manfrotto 190XPROB - Key Features:
The legs of the Manfrotto 190XPROB can each be set independently at four different angles - 25, 46, 66 and 88 degrees. Flip lever leg locks make opening, positioning and closing fast and easy. The tension of the locking mechanism is user-adjustable, and all parts can be easily serviced or replaced.
The Manfrotto 190XPROB includes the patented Q90 system. This ingenious system allows the user to move the central column from vertical to horizontal position in just seconds without having to disassemble the column. The center column can be used horizontally as an extending arm, or vertically (both right-way-up and upside-down). When used horizontally, it can be turned through 360 degrees around the tripod, and is useful for macro work, low angle shooting, extreme balance points and off-centre work. This also makes the Manfrotto 190XPROB a helpful accessory for chair-bound photographers, who can sit beside instead of behind the tripod, therefore much closer to the camera viewfinder.
All in all, the Manfrotto 190XPROB is a very clever tripod which is, as you would expect from Manfrotto, it is beautifully made.
The 190XPROB uses a standard 3/8" male screw thread, for attaching a head to the tripod - meaning a massive choice of heads can be used. The most common heads paired with the Manfrotto 190XPROB are
Manfrotto's 496RC2 ball head or Manfrotto's 804RC2 Three Way Pan and Tilt head.
