To remove the centre column, remove the retainer from the bottom of the centre column. After removing the centre column, turn the retainer around and plug it in place of the centre column. It also has a screw where you can put your tripod head. This makes the tripod even lighter!
For the price paid for the 190CX3, it is definately worth it for a carbon-fibre.
I put the word "quality" first, because after some costly miss-steps, I have sworn off the always disappointing knock-off copies of name brand tripods, and have gone with the "real deal" in this very well (Italian) made Manfrotto tripod. If you are have used the "knock-off" tripods you will really appreciate the quality and stability of this Italian beauty!
I find the flip leg locks are MUCH quicker and more secure than the twist type locks of other tripods and lock with with just one flip of my thumb on the two levers at once. Very slick and quick! The center post turn-key lock is easier to use than the twist type too. The four locking leg positions are well designed with a metal thumb push, and much better than only the two or three positions on other tripods. The included low angle adapter is a nice feature that allows you to remove the center post entirely, for close to the ground shots. Most importantly, you won't find a more stable tripod anywhere at this light weight (less than three pounds). The only caveat in regards to this tripod would be the operating height. Make sure it works for your stature before buying.
Nice smooth deployment of the legs and the added hook to allow you to add some weight is a nice touch. It will be nice to take it out this coming winter and not worry about my hands freezing to the aluminium tubing.
It supports my D700 with the massive 14-24mm 2.8 with no problems.

A great tripod but it was just too light for my needs. I'd recommend it for someone that just needs a back up for a small camera or something light to lug around. Read morePublished on January 10, 2014 by Michael Ferrara

This tripod is my first "high quality" tripod and it has been all I expected.
Very light, rigid, fits in a carry on, and all the parts work smoothly. Read more
