The new MT190XPRO3T is a compact 3-section aluminium tripod with advanced features and excellent build quality.
The key feature of the MT190XPRO3T is its Twist Locking system which allows you to easily open and close all sections at once with a single hand, making this tripod ultra-fast to operate. The new twist locks occupy less space than a lever, making the tripod light and compact.
Like the lever version, the MT190XPRO3T has a 90° centre column mechanism which allows the column to be extended either vertically in its normal position - or horizontally - opening up a wide range of framing and shooting possibilities. This makes the 190XPRO3T an extremely versatile tripod, suitable for a wide range of photography and video applications. The horizontal column mechanism is housed within the tripod's top casting for compactness, but is easily and quickly extended whenever you need it. Switching between vertical and horizontal column orientation requires no disassembly, and can even be done with a camera attached.
A bubble level is built into the top of the centre column for precise framing. The bubble level rotates freely around the centre column so it can be positioned wherever is easiest for you to see it while adjusting the tripod. It is never obscured by the mounted head and camera and doesn’t get in the way of head or camera controls.
The top casting of the MT190XPRO3T has an Easy Link connector to support a photo or video accessory (such as an LED light, flash, reflector, or other piece of equipment) on an extending arm or bracket, turning the tripod into a practical mobile studio.
The MT190XPRO3T is made in Italy by Manfrotto.
The Manfrotto 322RC2 Grip Action Ball Head offers the versatility of a ball head, with true ergonomic control.
The 322RC2 is unique in that it allows the camera mounting assembly to be positioned for left or right hand operation, in horizontal or vertical position, and in addition, will allow you to unblock, move, position and lock your camera with one hand in one position. This is due to the revolutionary design of its grip handle which incorporates the ball lock lever. The very act of taking your hand away from the grip locks the head into position, which eliminates the extra step of having to tighten a knob or lever before being ready to shoot. The tension of the ball can be adjusted to accommodate the load weight.
This head is not suitable for continuous tracking of moving subjects, it is not practical since one must always grip the lever to release the ball and thus your hand would tire after prolonged use.
An ideal head for action or wedding and portrait photographers.
