Product Description

Amazon.com

The Manfrotto 190XB three-section tripod is stable, flexible, and easy to use, making it a great choice for amateur and professional photographers alike. The tripod is distinguished by its redesigned aluminum frame, which is lighter than previous incarnations and slightly more compact. As a result, it's more convenient to bring this tripod along on shoots without weighing yourself down. Plus, the ergonomics of the leg-angle release mechanism and the quick-action leg locks have also been greatly improved, making it a breeze to open, position, and close the tripod in just a few seconds. The tension of the locking mechanism is even user-adjustable, so you can find the right tension for your comfort level. And should you need to balance the tripod on an uneven surface, you can set each of the legs to a different spread angle over the tripod's center of gravity--a must for nature shots on outdoor terrain.

    I purchased this tripod as a backpackable tripod, because I couldn't afford a carbon-fiber model. That said, this tripod is great, considering the relatively low price. My setup can be rather heavy, with a Nikon D200 + 80-200 f/2.8 lens, but so far the tripod in conjunction with the midi-ball head, has been very sturdy.

    The great things about this tripod are the thumb clasps on the telescoping legs (rather than wingnuts), the leg warmers (great at 5am when it's 30 degrees), and the well built and adjustable pivot points on the legs. I find the ability to have legs go totally horizontal is highly useful.

    This tripod does have some drawbacks. The first being the telescoping head - even with lighter setups, it introduces vibrations that take a few seconds to subside after hands are free of the camera. This extension is handy only in a pinch, with no wind, a small camera, and a remote release. Fully extended, it's shoddy, at best. This section also prevents the tripod from getting really low to the ground - the lowest it can go is limited by the length of this shaft, since it protrudes below the neck of the tripod.

    Also, this tripod is short, fully extended. It's a compact tripod, so that's to be expected, but I'm just providing fair warning to those interested. With the legs fully extended, I have to crouch quite low to look in my camera's viewfinder.

    All in all, excellent build quality, nice leg clasps, great adjustability, good for fairly heavy DSLR setups, and sturdy in fair weather conditions. I would recommend this to a friend, looking for a compact tripod for carrying around, and who couldn't get a carbon-fiber model.

    This tripod is amazing! It is solid and well-built. My last tripod was a cheap amateur tripod that wobbled a lot. One of the knobs recently broke so I decided to splurge for a good tripod. A good tripod is necessary for steady long exposure shots. So far, I'm very satisfied with this tripod. Manfrotto tripods are highly respected in the photography field and now I see why. This tripod is not wobbly at all. All the joints are rigid when locked and liquid smooth when not. I highly recommend this product!

    This tripod was stable and solid for my Canon D40, 24-70mm lens, and 580EX flash. Great construction and quality! It really holds!

    I tried it in the snow on my recent trip to Yellowstone Nation Park and Park City without any problems. I also used my 70-200mm lens.

    Well worth the price and necessary for my $2500 camera.

    I was disappointed with my first Manfrotto tripod because it didn't work with the Manfrotto head I was using, which I found very odd. Ended up having to buy a new one and just take the hit on the first one. In and of itself, it is sturdy. It isn't very heavy, so you need to weigh it down on some shots.

    I use this with a Bogen/Manfrotto 701 HDV head when travelling. It holds up reasonably well for video, and I can often get smooth pans towards the 100mm range, but not much above that. Build quality is excellent, weight is perfect for travel. It's a professional photographer/filmmaker's mini/travel tripod, for sure.

    This is the first manfrotto product I've ever purchased but I've purchased many other monopods, tripods, sliders, shoulder rigs ect. I'd have to say this is the first time a product like this didn't come with a case? I feel when you spend good money on a brand name product like this at least included a case.

    Tripod is compact and sets up in seconds but its very light and not that sturdy.

    Paired this with the Manfrotto 701HDV head. Great size. Wish the legs were heavier, though. I'm usually putting a Canon 7D with some extras on it, and it holds it all really well. Looks sleek, too.
