Well constructed and very sturdy tripod.
Olympus
You can adjust this in so many ways with the three leg sections, the extra leg angle to almost flat and the vertical/horizontal column adjustment.

My goal is to one day buy a Manfrotto carbon fiber model.

the manfrotto 190xprob may be the best prosumer tripod legs on the market. that is to say, if you need more tripod than this, you're either a wildlife pro or a serious amateur with some long prime lenses.

the 190xprob replaced a cheap VidPro with a plastic head that was very creaky and required overt carefulness. the difference is really astounding, and when you factor in the durability -- i expect this to last for many years-- the added expense over the cheapies is well-justified.

at first glance the 190xprob has that mercedes/bmw look: smooth, clean, symmetrical, steely, with style for days. seriously, this is a good looking pair of legs.

the design is top-notch. manfrotto didnt cut any corners in terms of ergonomics or materials. the fliplock leg extenders clamp solidly yet open fluidly. the piece de resistance is the center column, which easily slides up and extends horizontally for macro or close up work at low angles. a press of a button and the legs hyperextend for extreme low angles, and easily snap back into place.

the whole thing looks and feels solid. but it only weighs four pounds -- light enough for a hike but probably not the best choice for a long vacation (although it will fit diagonally into a 22" carry-on if you're that determined).

manfrotto has seemingly thought of everything -- there's a bubble spirit level right where you need it, foam leg warmers on 2 of the sections, and even a hook for a sandbag or similar weight for use in windy conditions. you can get all sorts of accessories too, like spiked feet, an m-bag, etc.

i tested the horizontal column with a nikon d300 w/ grip and a sigma 50-150 -- probably about a good 5-6 pounds.

I had been looking for a lighter weight, shorter and more versatile tripod for some time. The 190XPROB does the job very well. It provides the versatility I was looking for. As a wildlife photographer I needed a tripod I could set up and adjust the leg height quickly and with the quick action leg locks it works perfectly. It is very stable with my Canon EOS 30D and EF 100-400mm lens. The Bogen Menfrotto 190XPROB is my prime tripod now.

Size Name: 57cm
I purchased this tripod from Amazon as part of a combo set with a head (which was better value for money).

Over the past week, I've had a chance to really use it extensively, and here are my observations.

1) It fit very nicely into a bag that my fold-able chair came in (the kind you use at fireworks displays or soccer games), with room to spare. This meant I could save on buying an overpriced carry bag.

2) I carried it slung across my back (as you might wear a bandolier) for extended periods of time (off and on for 7 hours a day, over 3 days), and never experienced much discomfort.

This was my biggest concern with a heavier tripod than I'm used to, and I'm happy to say that I was able to take this with me wherever it was needed. Of course, as expected, its weight gradually gets more noticeable as the day wears on, but it never got to the point where I questioned my decision to bring it along.

I would've preferred a lighter tripod, but the price difference didn't work very well with my budget.

3) The leg sections don't drop quite as easily as my cheap tripod - adding a few seconds to tripod setup time. I find I have to actually encourage a couple of the sections to come lose. I'm not sure if that's the norm on high end tripods ... so I'll have to visit a local store to check for myself.

4) The leg locks work very well, and never did I find myself worrying about the stability of the tripod or my equipment. Under windy conditions, it also comes with a hook that allows you to hang a camera bag on it for added stability (which I didn't need).

5) I really enjoyed the hand grips - even when it wasn't cold/raining.

This is a durable, light-weight, sturdy, quick-adjusting and quiet tripod. It supports my 300mm f2.8 lens, even in moderate wind. I have a Manfrotto (Bogen) 701RC2 head that I like even more. I carry a lot of gear in the field, and weight and reliability both matter. This set up has given me both for almost a year. Strongly recommended.

This tripod worked well for about a year and then the small levers inserted at the top of the legs (the ones you press to allow the legs to spread wider than the standard width) corroded and became unusable. The tripod can still be used in a limited way. I will end up replacing the unit pretty soon. It appears to me that the metal used in this area is of substantially poorer qualtiy than the rest of the unit. This isn't a $900 carbon fiber tripod and I didn't expect it to last as long (forever). It isn't a cheapee either, though, and it should have lasted longer.

I was confused when i first started looking around for a new tripod. There were so many to choose from, but i knew that i didn't wanna break the bank for a Gitzo. The next obvious choice for me was manfrotto. I'm not a pro, but this tripod gives me sharp pictures at a great price. When i first pulled it out of the box, my first impression was how well built and put together it was. You hold this tripod and it just feels right. The legs are very easy to extend, no screwing and unscrewing parts, just a simple locking switch and you're set. Some may think this tripod is too heavy to carry around for long periods of time, but i'm not going on some safari for three days. I keep it in my truck and when i see something interesting i'll set it up and get my shot. Get it, save yourself some money, and enjoy taking better pictures with this solid tripod.
