About Manfrotto 190XB

• Built on the same ergonomically improved design as the 190XPROB but without the horizontal center column feature, the 190XB is lighter in weight and slightly more compact.

Solid, Strong, & Smooth, a great Tripod

This replaced a very inexpensive, lightweight Radian tripod/head combo that shook at the slightest breeze an could not pan smoothly at all, so made for very unstable image viewing with a spotting scope.

This replaced a very inexpensive, lightweight Radian tripod/head combo that shook at the slightest breeze an could not pan smoothly at all, so made for very unstable image viewing with a spotting scope. The difference is startling and there is no comparison. This Manfrotto is so well constructed and solid that I immediately regretted cheaping out. Knowing what I know now, I would get a quality tripod like this to begin with and a smoothly tilting-panning head like this combination and never look back. Could it be lighter? Yes, but that gets you into carbon-fiber and many more dollars. If you can afford this as your first tripod, get it. You won't be sorry.

A great beginner tripod

By

from New York  -  Photo Enthusiast

I am just starting out with photography, and this tripod is excellent for me for the following reasons: - It isn't expensive (compared with ultra light-weight tripods) - It extends very high and very low (great for all types of compositions) - It is very sturdy (has plenty of room to grow with you e.g. new lenses!) - I don't take it for extended hikes very often, so the weight isn't a problem.

A real value which is easy to carry, quickly sets up, and is rock solid. Glad that I made this choice.

Wonderful Simplicity

By

from New Orleans  -  Semi-pro Photographer

A durable and simple tripod. If you don't need spiked feet (They are available as ad ons) or a center column that goes horizontal (How often will you use that?)then the simplicity of this tripod makes it extremely attractive as well as more durable than the fancier versions.

Perfect for the weekend photographer

By

from Boca Raton, FL  -  Photo Enthusiast

Combined mine witha Vanguard GH-100 pistol grip ballhead (which I also recommend)for my leisure time hobby/passion. Folds small enough to carry on the Think Tank Airport Antidote backpack. Super easy to unfold the legs, really a secure base to shoot from. Supports a Nikon D300 with a battery grip & any lense I have to put on it. Found it used and I'm glad I have it.
