About Manfrotto 190CX3

In 2007 the Manfrotto 190X received the TIPA award for Best Accessory on the market, while the 190XPROB won The Editor's Choice award from American Photo. Manfrotto was so proud to receive these awards, but they didn't want to stop there. Manfrotto has taken this already amazing tripod to the next level. Manfrotto presents a New Generation of tripods to the carbon fiber tripod world, extremely light weight with, incredible performance, fast and easy to use combining incredibly light, high quality materials (100% Carbon Fiber Tubes, Magnesium and aluminum die castings) a revolutionary patented center column mechanism (Q90°, Quick Center Column System), and innovative design.

The 190CXPRO3 and the 190CXPRO4 represent three section and four section versions of the PRO tripods. These PRO versions have the patented quick center column system that now uses a tri-faceted 100% full carbon fiber tube, magnesium die castings and magnesium top plate with an integrated leveling bubble.

190CX3
The 190CX also comes in a simpler version called the 190CX3. This three section tripod also uses 100% carbon fiber tubes; however, it features the traditional aluminum center column without the quick center column system.

GReat product

My wife is an avid birder and she need a good tripod for her spotting scope. This really fit the bill. She loves the light weight, but strenght of this tripod. I would definitely recommend it to any birder looking for a tripod.

I love this tripod.

By

from Myrtle Beach, SC  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this tripod mostly for landscape shots. It's light to carrie, unfolds easy, quick to set up. I have a manfrotto ball head with quick release clamp that I mount on it. It's a perfect set up for my Pentax K-5 and lens. If your camera and lens is under 11lbs then this is the tripod for you. Buy it, the price is right.

Great, but not what I thought

By

from Chicago  -  Casual Photographer

After watching one of the very helpful Adorama videos on tripods, I decided to go with a Manfrotto. I was interested in the feature where the center piece could be turned to a 90 degree angle, to get shots parallel from above a table. After a call to Adorama, I understood that this tripod had this capability. Sadly, it does not. Having said that, I've decided to keep this tripod anyway. The tripod is sturdy and lightweight, with excellent construction.

Light and sturdy

By

from Gainesville, GA  -  Pro Photographer

This is a wonderful general purpose tripod. The range in height makes it perfect for outdoor/nature photography because it gives you the ability to shoot everything between stable macros to pin-sharp landscapes. The light weight makes this easy to take along on hikes or vacation.

Great Value

By

Very light. Great for hiking. Maybe 4-section would be a little smaller.

Great tripod

By

from Lighthouse Point, Fl  -  Semi-pro Photographer

very easy to carry when it is open or folded because of its weight. It can handle my Panasonic DVX100 easily.
