Newly redesigned, the 190XPROB makes the famous Manfrotto-patented horizontal center column feature even easier to use. Now, by extending the column to its highest vertical position, it can be swung around to horizontal without removing the head or disassembling the column itself, so switching between framing and positioning setups is more convenient than ever.
The ergonomics of the leg angle release mechanism and the quick action leg locks themselves have also been greatly improved.
Great tripod, fairly light weight and very configurable. Own two of them, on for my wife and one for myself. We use these when hiking or biking on our photo adventures.
This is a good, serviceable all-purpose tripod. It's well-made, adjustable enough for most tasks and sturdy. It's a good buy and I would recommend it in a heartbeat.
I bought this with Manfrotto 496RC2.This is my first pro level tripod. I can say it is top notch quality and very stable. There is no tiny shake when using with 6D & 70-200mm 2.8 IS II. However, I would be hesitant to bring it with me for traveling as it is a little on the heavy side.
I did a lot of research before choosing this tripod. I wanted a light weight tripod that could be used for various types of work from marco shooting to landscape panoramas. Now that I have used it I have had no disappointments. It is super steady in almost any configuration and it is easy to setup and configure.
I bought this tripod because I almost dropped my camera and lens into a river with a tripod that released my camera too easily. This tripod has a locking latch to keep your camera where you intend for it to be. I also like the RC2 style plate that accepts a BlackRapid swivel strap connection.
I especially like how the legs can be moved to different angles.

I saw this tripod my friend had and I fell on love with it. I went and bought this combo. It is solid,well built, easily set and folded. The only downside is to get a carrying case that can fit it.
I really like the stability of this, a little heavier but that helps to be more stable
Tripod came within two weeks when I ordered it. Tripod is well built, stable and for the price! can't go wrong. The head takes a bit getting used to but other than that, its an amazing tripod, if your looking for your first tripod, this is the one.
