Manfrotto MT190XPRO3 Aluminium Three Section Tripod Legs
The 190XPRO3 is a compact 3-section aluminium tripod with advanced features and excellent build quality.
The key feature of the 190XPRO3 is its 90° centre column mechanism, which allows the column to be extended vertically as normal, or horizontally to open up a wide range of framing and shooting possibilities; this makes the 190XPRO3 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 it 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.
Solid and fast to setup.
The legs of the 190XPRO3 tripod are also fast to extend and adjust, thanks to the Quick Power Lock levers that block and unblock each leg section. The special design of the QPL levers allows a more comfortable and stronger single-handed grip of the leg locks. From folded, the sections of each leg of the tripod can be released in a single movement. The QPL lever design also offers more powerful locking of each section, meaning the tripod is more stable and rigid than with traditional lever designs. Intuitive and ergonomic leg angle selectors allow each leg to be independently and solidly set to any of the preset angles, again allowing considerable positioning freedom.
The new 90o centre column mechanism is an impressive match of imagination and engineering that's key to the new 190s significantly more compact folded length. The new vertical-horizontal column mechanism is hidden inside the tripod's top casting until it's needed. In combination with the brand new flat top disc for the centre column, the new PRo mechanism considerably reduces the overall closed length of the tripod.
Built-in bubble level.
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 it's easiest for you to see it while adjusting the tripod, and without it either being obscured by the mounted head and camera or getting in the way of the head or camera controls.
Easy Link connector
The top casting of the 190XPRO3 has an Easy Link connector for supporting a photo or video accessory (such as an LED light, flash, reflector, or other piece of equipment) on an extending arm or bracket, and making the tripod into a practical mobile studio.

A lightweight fluid head with pan bar and quick release camera plate with secondary security, ideal for cameras up to 4kg in weight. It has smooth fluid movement, pan and tilt locks. This version is black painted. Optional Plates: 200PL-38.
