Manfrotto has gone all out to keep its 190 tri­pod range on top of the com­pe­ti­tion. You still get the op­tion of alu­minium or car­bon con­struc­tion, with all ver­sions rated to sup­port up to 7kg of kit. The rigid­ity of our three-sec­tion car­bon fi­bre of­fer­ing proved par­tic­u­larly im­pres­sive, yet it tips the scales at just 1.6kg. You’ll still need to fac­tor in the ex­tra weight of a tri­pod head, but this re­mains an im­pres­sively light and sta­ble set of legs.

The new leg clamp de­sign se­cures well and is a cinch to op­er­ate. Up top sits Manfrotto’s piv­ot­ing cen­tre col­umn. Push­ing a but­ton at its base al­lows the col­umn to swing through 90 de­grees and lock hor­i­zon­tally. It’s a use­ful fin­ish­ing touch for a top-notch tri­pod.

There’s a new, easy-to-use leg clamp de­sign, which should make set­ting the tri­pod up even faster
