Our opinion:

The 190XPRO4-3W kit is ideal for photographers who have heavy equipment that they need to set up in either the conventional vertical set up - or switch to a horizontal (ground or sky shooting) position quickly and efficiently. Switching between vertical and horizontal column orientation requires no disassembly, and can even be done with a camera attached.

The 3 way head has been designed with videography in mind , as it allows smooth panning as well as a precise directional setup.

The 3 bubble levels in the top of this tripod are angled over 2 sides - which is very convenient for framing images in both, landscape or portrait orientation.

What is truly revolutionary about the new Manfrotto 190 series tripods is the ability to attach accessories on optional arms, i.e. LED lights or reflectors. This is such a good idea, as one often has to be an octopus to hold these accessories and release the shutter at the same time. Flexible arms screw into the top of the tripod and start from around ?20.

The tripod includes the popular X-Pro 3 way Head with matt black finish and common 200PL quick release plate. Retractable levers mean it's ultra-compact plus the new friction controls on the portrait and tilt axes, help balance the weight of camera equipment which can be up to 6kg.

The tripod kit weight is 3.1kg

Best Tripod

'Manfrotto new 190 collection tripods appeal to advanced hobbyist photographers. Two different configurations are available: either aluminium or carbon fibre. This new collection features the new Quick Power Lock lever, which allows release of all locks on each leg with one hand and a single movement. A new 90-degree centre column mechanism and flat top disc for the centre column significantly reduces the overall length of the closed tripod, plus allows easy setup of horizontal position for the centre column for macro. An Easy Link attachment in the top casting allows for attachment of accessories to the tripod, such as an LED light or reflector, which adds to the versatility and shooting opportunities.'
Manufacturer’s Description
The key feature of the 190XPRO4 is its 90? centre column mechanism, which allows the column to be extended vertically as normal, or horizontally to open up a wide range of framing and shooting possibilities; this makes the 190XPRO4 an extremely versatile tripod, suitable for a wide range of photography and video 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 190XPRO4 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 more comfortable single-handed opening of all leg sections in one action. QPL's lever design also offers more powerful locking of each section, meaning the tripod is more stable and rigid than with traditional lever designs. Intuitive and ergonomic leg angle selectors allow each leg to be independently and solidly set to any of the preset angles, again allowing considerable positioning freedom.

A bubble level is built in to the top of the centre column for precise framing. The bubble level rotates freely around the centre column, so it can be positioned wherever it's easiest for you to see it while adjusting the tripod, and without it either being obscured by the mounted head and camera, or getting in the way of head or camera controls.

The top casting of the 190XPRO4 has an Easy Link connector for supporting a photo or video accessory (such as an LED light, flash, reflector, or other piece of equipment) on an extending arm or bracket, and making the tripod into a practical mobile studio.

The X-PRO 3-Way Head has retractable levers which make it ultra-compact, and also features new friction controls on the portrait and tilt axes, to help balance the weight of camera equipment so that fine framing adjustments can be made with the locking knobs open, only locking everything down once the shot is ready.

The 190XPRO4 and the X-PRO 3-Way Head are made in Italy by Manfrotto
