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.

A great beginner tripod


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.


More than you bargain for!


from Saint Peters, PA  -  Casual Photographer

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


very good


from NM  -  Photography Student

like being able to have multiple positions


Sturdy, not too heavy


from East Coast, USA  -  Casual Photographer

Sturdy, stable, and easy to use.


Wonderful Simplicity


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


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.

Gets the Job Done


from philadelphia suburbs  -  Photo Enthusiast

Best small lightweight tripod I have used. I use it for medium format scenery shots with a mamiya 645, and am quite pleased with the results. I'd give it a five, but I'm not a five kind of guy.
