190XPRO3 is a compact 3-section aluminium tripod with advanced features and excellent build quality.
The key feature of the 190XPRO3 is its 90 degree centre column mechanism, which allows the column to be extended vertically as normal, or horizontally to open up a wide range of framing and shooting possibilities; this makes the 190XPRO3 an extremely versatile tripod, suitable for a wide range of photography and video applications. The horizontal column mechanism is housed within the tripod's top casting for compactness, but it is easily and quickly extended whenever you need it. Switching between vertical and horizontal column orientation requires no disassembly, and can even be done with a camera attached.
The legs of the 190XPRO3 tripod are also fast to extend and adjust, thanks to the Quick Power Lock levers that block and unblock each leg section. The special design of the QPL levers allows a more comfortable and stronger single-handed grip of the leg locks. From folded, the sections of each leg of the tripod can be released in a single movement. The QPL lever design also offers more powerful locking of each section, meaning the tripod is more stable and rigid than with traditional lever designs. Intuitive and ergonomic leg angle selectors allow each leg to be independently and solidly set to any of the preset angles, again allowing considerable positioning freedom.
A bubble level is built in to the top of the centre column for precise framing. The bubble level rotates freely around the centre column, so it can be positioned wherever it's easiest for you to see it while adjusting the tripod, and without it either being obscured by the mounted head and camera, or getting in the way of head or camera controls.
The top casting of the 190XPRO3 has an Easy Link connector for supporting a photo or video accessory (such as an LED light, flash, reflector, or other piece of equipment) on an extending arm or bracket, and making the tripod into a practical mobile studio.

XPRO Magnesium Ball Head with 200PL plate:
XPRO Ball Head features a triple locking system which guarantees camera position stability, avoiding drifting thanks to three wedges which enclose and block the sphere. Its friction control helps the user balance the weight of camera equipment and, thanks to the two leveling bubbles, fine adjustments can be made with the locking knobs open.
Moreover, its new polymer rings have substituted that unpleasant, messy grease, ensuring smooth, accurate and less jerky camera movement.
XPRO Ball Head is extremely portable, lightweight and reliable thanks to its magnesium body: it weighs only 1.1 lbs. (0.5 kg) and can support up to 22 lbs. (10 kg) of payload.

Great Value - Sturdy Sonstruction"I needed a tripod for an upcoming trip, and had a good look at a variety of options. After a great deal of very patient help from Brian in Newmarket, I bought the 190XPRO3 with XPRO Magnesium Ball Head and 200PL Plate. Itђs a great balance between high-end features and reasonable price, making it very good value. The weight is reasonable, but it feels well built. The setup is quick because of the quick lock levers on the legs, and has a very handy centre column that switches for horizontal use. The legs can be set at various angles, allowing me to get right down to the ground if needed. I love the XPRO Magnesium Ball Head, as it fits my preferences perfectly. The latch took a little getting used to, but allows very quick mounting and dismounting of the camera, and has a safety latch that minimizes the chance of accidental release of the camera. After looking around, this model was a great choice, and I would recommend it."

Great Quickly Configurable Tripod"I bought the 190XPRO3 with XPRO Magnesium Ball Head and 200PL Plate as it is a moderate weight tripod which allows very quick change in configuration and mounting of my camera. Speed is improved by 3 section legs (vs 4 section), quick lock levers on the legs, and the incredibly quick centre column switching for horizontal use. Overall these features make setup a snap. Legs can be set at a number of angles, allowing you to get right down to the ground. Very stable and rigid.
Rubber cover on the top sections of two legs for comfort when using in very cold tempertures. The XPRO Magnesium Ball Head with 200PL plate provides very quick mounting/dismounting with a safety latch that minimizes the chance of accidental release of your camera, without interfering with attachment. Iђm buying an additional plate for other bodies/lenses (easy to come by as itђs Manfrotto). Iђve not noticed any drift with my Canon 7Dmk2 and Canon 100-400mm IS II lens on the head. Pano movement and levels are standard. I looked at a lot of tripods and changed my mind several times before buying this one. Not disappointed at all. Would purchase again."
