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 804RC2 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head with RC2 Quick Release & 200PL-14 QR Plate is a direct replacement to the popular 3030 and 3029 heads. It is 20% lighter than its predecessors due to the use of Adapto material. It also features improved ergonomic design plus a counter spring system.
Adapto is a special technical polymer that is comparable to aluminum in strength but is 50% lighter. Compared to metals such as aluminum Adapto is an ideal material for photo imaging equipment as it has superb resistance to extreme temperatures and will not corrode or oxidize. Additionally, Adapto is an excellent vibration absorbing material making the 804RC2 head an ideal companion to a MagFibre tripod for the ultimate in vibration free shots.
The 804RC2 head is also the first 3-way head to use a counter spring system to help protect your equipment. Built into the forward/back tilt axis is a fixed spring that helps to absorb the shock of the full camera weight from crashing down. The spring also makes it easier to position the camera on this axis since it opposes some of the camera weight.
- Includes a built-in quick release adapter that accepts the range of different RC2 (3157N) plates.
- Handles feature improved design to fit more comfortably in your hand.
- Coating on the quick-release lever is more durable and scratch resistant than before.
