  7. Manfrotto - MK190XPRO4-BHQ2 Aluminum Tripod with XPRO Ball Head and 200PL QR Plate - Angle_Zoom

    Product Description

    Reliable shooting for your compact camera. Highly portable, the 190XPRO4 has a clever 90° column mechanism, housed in the tripod's top casting, that can be quickly extended in the vertical or horizontal position. This means you won't have to disassemble your camera and lose out on shooting time. Compose your photos and videos with more freedom and flexibility and showcase your individual style. The 190XPRO4 also has intuitive and ergonomic leg angle selectors, which ensure each leg can be solidly set to a pre-set angle so you can enjoy a much wider choice of framing and shooting options. With a bubble level built into the top part of the centre column, you can shoot with precision. Better still, because the bubble level is freely rotating, you can position it so that nothing obstructs your view and gets in the way of that perfect shot. You can quickly extend the legs of the 190XPRO4 tripod with head via the specially designed Quick Power Lock levers. These block and unblock each lever, and allow a comfortable single-handed opening of all the tripod's leg sections in just one movement. They also lock each section powerfully, giving your tripod significantly more stability than older designs. Easily add an LED light, reflector or another photo or video accessory to your tripod with the Easy Link connector. The accessory can be attached to an extending arm, turning your tripod into a practical mobile studio. The 190XPRO4 also has an expertly designed ball head and a quick-release camera plate, ensuring you can use it with a wide range of devices.

  8. Manfrotto - MK190XPRO3-BHQ2 Aluminum Tripod with XPRO Ball Head and 200PL QR Plate - Angle_Zoom

    Product Description

    The 190XPRO tripod with ball head is an ideal companion for photographers and videographers with a wide range of shooting styles. Its compact size means it's easy to carry around when you're on the go. When you're ready to frame and shoot, simply extend the horizontal column mechanism in just seconds. The column is housed in the tripod's top casting to save space, and can be switched to vertical orientation so you never miss out on your next important shoot. This also means you can keep your camera attached when switching orientation, so you won't have to worry about disassembling your equipment. The 190XPRO tripod's legs are quickly extendible and adjustable, and each leg section can be effectively blocked or unblocked with the efficient and powerful Quick Power Lock (QPL) levers. Open the leg sections single-handedly with the QPL levels, which will keep your tripod extremely stable and rigid compared with traditional lever designs. Each leg can be customised to a pre-set angle independently, giving you tremendous shooting freedom. With the freely rotating bubble level, you can frame even more precisely and position your equipment so that nothing obscures your view. In the top casting of the 190XPRO you will also find an Easy Link connector, which can support a video or photo accessory such as a reflector or flash. These can be quickly fitted to an extending arm, turning your tripod into a practical mobile studio. Another benefit of the 190XRPO is the durable magnesium ball head, which has a quick-release camera plate so you can use it with an extensive selection of devices. It includes a triple locking system for guaranteed camera stability, and has friction control to ensure the weight of your equipment is evenly distributed. In addition, new polymer rings provide smooth, accurate camera movement and none of the unpleasant grease of older products.
