The black, redesigned MT190XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod
builds on the success and popularity of the previous 190 series with professional hardware and convenience features that make it even easier to use than its predecessor.
Set up is faster than ever with Manfrotto's Quick Power Lock System that allows you to completely extend the tripod legs with just one hand. Once set up you can use the MT190XPRO3's rapid center column in standard vertical mode or swing it into horizontal position like a boom with Manfrotto's 90° Column feature. Enlarged tabs on the individual leg angle selectors allow you to get down to only 3.5" for macro work with the column in horizontal mode. And once you're down there you can attach any of Manfrotto's flexible or articulated arms to hold lights or reflectors via the Easy Link plug built into the tripod's spider.
Convenience features include grippy, rubber leg warmers on two legs for cold or inclement weather and a bubble level that rotates so that you can see it easily regardless of the tripod's position. Finally, Manfrotto's insistence on form following function has yielded a tripod that you'll not only be happy to use but you'll be happy to be seen with, too.
The Manfrotto MH293D3-Q2 3-Way Photo Head with Foldable Handles
is fabricated from a lightweight polymer called Adapto that offers great strength and functionality without the weight of metal. A unique mechanism allows you to fold the handles parallel to the tripod for tighter, more convenient packing. Other features include +90° / -30° lateral and front tilt, and three bubble levels for accurate framing. It has a quick release and camera plate with a 1/4"-20 mounting screw.
