This kit includes the Manfrotto190XPRO3 3-section aluminum tripod and a portable, versatile ball head. Both the tripod and head have advanced features and excellent build quality - made in Italy by Manfrotto.
The key feature of this kit is the tripod's 90° center column mechanism, which allows the column to be extended vertically as normal or horizontally. This makes it an extremely versatile tripod, suitable for a wide range of photography 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.
The legs of the 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 stronger and more comfortable single-handed leg lock grip. The sections of each leg on the tripod can be released from their folded position in a single movement. The QPL lever design also offers more powerful locking of each section, making this tripod more stable and rigid than traditional lever design models. Intuitive, ergonomic leg angle selectors allow each leg to be independently and solidly set to any of the preset angles, affording considerably greater positioning freedom.
A bubble level is built into the top of the center column for precise framing. The bubble level rotates freely around the center column, so it can be positioned wherever it's easiest for you to see while you adjust the tripod and without it either being obscured by the mounted head and camera.
The tripod’s top casting has an Easy Link connector to support a photo or video accessory (such as an LED light, flash, reflector, or another piece of equipment) on an extending arm or bracket, transforming it into a practical mobile studio.
The XPRO Ball Head is the perfect union between innovative solutions and design. It has a triple locking system that guarantees camera position stability, friction control helping the user balance the weight of camera equipment, and two leveling bubbles to precisely frame composition. Moreover, its new polymer rings have substituted that unpleasant, messy grease, ensuring smooth, accurate, and less jerky camera movement. XPRO Ball Head is portable, lightweight, and reliable thanks to its magnesium body and comes with the Manfrotto 200 pl plate.
The 190XPRO3 and the MHXPRO-BHQ2 head are made in Italy by Manfrotto.
