While modern lenses are equipped with amazing image-stabilization technology, nothing beats a tripod for perfectly clear, well-framed images — and that’s Manfrotto’s focus: producing a range of tripods renowned for their quality, ease of use, and portability
MANFROTTO MT190 XPRO3 ALUMINIUM TRIPOD
With the ability to fully extend the legs and the central column with just one hand, the MT190’s innovative locking system means that you can set up your tripod quickly and securely. The folded tripod is compact at just under a metre long but, at its full extent, measures 1.6m. This is thanks to its collapsible central column, which can either be used vertically or swung out for horizontal use. This feature, along with enlarged tabs on the individual leg-angle selectors makes it ideal for macro work as low as 9cm, and its ability to hold lights and reflectors makes it a versatile shooting companion.
