The Manfrotto 190XDB 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 can't recommend this tripod enough. I shoot with a CANON REBEL XT and use a 300mm lens, as well as a heavier 200-500mm lens...this is a very sturdy tripod, and also extremely versitile.
THe legs can be adjusted to so many angles, and it sits nice and tight.

I highly recommend this tripod for anyone who needs something sturdy and easily portabe...(it folds up pretty nice, too)

Wish I would have paid more attention and seen that it has screw extenders instead of the clip kind. Takes to long to set up. Spend an extra 50 bucks and save yourself alot of time.

I love my Manfrotto 190XDB tripod. It's stable. It's solidly built. It's light weight (3.5 lbs). The legs easily extend or retract after loosening the wing locking knobs which are easy to use. I have another tripod with quick release brackets for the legs. I wish this tripod had that feature, too, but for the price, it's not a deal breaker. I love the fact that you can invert the stem and hang the camera below the tripod, too. With the head attached and the center column raised, it rotates smoothly with zero vibration. I've purchased lesser tripods and have experienced annoying vibrations as I pan my video camera. That doesn't happen with the Manfrotto.

My students and I use this tripod for video projects, and we all love that the tripod can raise or lower the camera from 13" to almost 58" to vary the angles.

Note to buyer: The price of the tripod is a bit misleading...This tripod does NOT come with a head or quick release plate. To use the tripod I had to purchase a head (I chose the Manfrotto 128LP Micro Fluid Head for its smooth action and no-frills at about $70) and the Manfrotto 323 RC2 Rapid Connect Adapter with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate (at about $30).

With all the pieces in place, this is a tripod that I'll be able to use for years with both HD video cameras and SLRs. I'm happy with the purchase and love the Manfrotto brand.

Manfrotto among other great tripod manufacturers (Giottos) always rank high among fellow photographers.
This is my entry level tripod - at a very reasonable price - that has yet to let me down.
It feels very sturdy and is light to carry around.

The more expensive Manfrotto models have quick release latches to extend the tripod legs; this one uses a screw-in system. I don't mind it the least bit. It is quick to setup and performs extremely well. I am 6 ft tall and along with a quality ball/joystick head mount reaches all the way to my eye-level.

I highly recommend this tripod to anybody seeking their first tripod for a DSLR but don't want to spend a grip. The setup I have is the Manfrotto 190XDB along with the Manfrotto 322RC2 Joystick Head Short joystick tripod head mount

I used both with my D3100 and D90 during the holiday home party. All shots were made in low light without flash. Results were excellent.
Excellent products!

I'm happy with this tripod except for the leg release mechanism: I wish I bought the model with the levers to release the legs instead of the knobs. The knobs take too many turns to release - it takes too long and it's awkward to release the legs. The levers are much easier to use. It also didn't come with a tool to tighten the nuts. I'm having a difficult time finding the correct tool. The only tool I found is too large and heavy. The other model tripod comes with the tool attached to the tripod leg. The rest of the tripod is nice. I wouldn't buy this model.

I would spend a little extra money and get the PRO version of this tripod. The twist to lock leg mechanism takes a bit a time to lock and secure all the legs. However, I do like the build quality of this tripod. If your not to picky about spend a little extra time to set up your shots, then this tripod may be the one for you.

This tripod was all that I expected. It is much easier to set up that standard models and very stable. I really like the way the legs extend independently (no center supports) allowing quick set-up on hills and rough terrain.

I got this combined with the 390RC2 head, and while I'm not the hugest fan of the head, this tripod is great! I've had it for a few months now and taken it to plenty of places, both indoors and outdoors, and have not had a problem yet. The screw-type locks on the extension legs are sturdy and don't seem to wear quickly (I much prefer the screw type to the flip type locks, as they are easier to adjust and stay better). The legs can lock at a few different angles for odd setups. At first I was worried that the leg angle locking mechanism would be a problem, as it only keeps the legs from sliding out, not folding in, but after several bumps and knocks, they have yet to budge. I have not found the weight of this tripod to be a problem. It's heavy enough to keep the camera steady and light enough to carry. All in all, I will be replacing the head soon, but the tripod is here to stay for a while more.
