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 494 Mini Ball Head w/RC2 QR Plate is a lightweight ball head that's perfect for smaller cameras (maximum load--8.82 lbs). It's got a quick-release plate, a newly designed friction control knob that allows micro movements without engaging the head-locking mechanism, and a locking mechanism that will lock the head in both the +90°/-90° tilt position and the 360° panning position.
- A new friction control knob allows micro movements without having to engage the head locking mechanism
