The 190XPROB makes the famous Manfrotto-patented horizontal centre column feature even easier to use.
Now, by extending the column to its highest vertical position, it can be swung round to horizontal without removing the head or disassembling the column itself,
so switching between framing and positioning setups is more convenient than ever. The ergonomics of the leg angle release mechanism and the quick action leg locks
themselves have also been greatly improved.

The 498 Midi Ball Head has been totally redesigned for better ease of use.
The new friction control knob allows the photographer to achieve superior control when handling the camera and making micro movements without having to totally lock and unlock the ball head.
A smart repositionable locking lever allows the user to place it in a comfortable position in order to use it in the most convenient way.
Just pull it outwards, put it in the best working position and then release it. The locking lever securely locks the head both in the +90 -90 ball positioning and in the 360 pan positions.
