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 498RC4 Compact Ball Head with RC4 Quick Release and 410PL QR Plate is constructed of die-cast aluminum, strong enough to support an SLR camera with a medium lens, and light medium format cameras. It has a single repositionable locking lever for 360° panoramic rotation and ±90° tilt movement, plus a friction control for precise positioning. Cameras are attached to the ball head with the 410PL Plate and RC4 Quick Release with 1/4'' male threads. The head to tripod attachment has 3/8'' female threads. Additionally, the Quick Release has a safety system to prevent an accidental detaching from the head.
