Manfrotto 190 Carbon Fibre - 4 Leg Sections. Designed for the advanced hobbyist and for the professional photographer, this is an extremely versatile tripod, ideal for small, medium format cameras, digital or conventional type.
The 190CXPRO4 is a compact, lightweight and rigid 3-section tripod with carbon fibre leg tubes, a host of advanced features and excellent build quality.
The 4-section legs of the 190CXPRO4 tripod make it extremely compact: together with the height saving of the new horizontal column mechanism, 4-section legs help to reduce the closed length of this tripod by 16cm compared to preceding 190 models - a boon for any travelling photographer.
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 190CXPRO4 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.
Solid & Fast to set up
Less time setting up the tripod means more time shooting, and the new 190 is quicker and easier than ever to deploy and adjust, thanks in great part to the new Quick Power Lock leg lever design. QPL is ultra fast – all the locks on each leg can be released with one hand and a single movement.
The new 90° centre column mechanism: an impressive match of imagination and engineering that’s key to the new 190’s significantly more compact folded length. The new vertical-horizontal column mechanism is hidden inside the tripod’s top casting until it’s needed. In combination with the brand new flat top disc for the centre column, the new PRO mechanism considerably reduces the overall closed length of the tripod.
One-Finger Action: the mechanism lifts out of the casting and allows the centre column to swing to the horizontal position, with no disassembly and without removing the head or camera.
- A unique sliding centre column that can be operated in either a vertical or horizontal plane.
- Each leg can be independently set at 4 angles of spread.
- Spirit level.
- Two rubber made leg warmers
- Easy link socket for inserting arms
- Quick Power Lock levers that allow to easily open all the levers simultaneously
- Hook for hanging a counterweight and for a strap

Review by Annie
I have been saving up for one of these and just by chance came across Uttings they were not my first thought for camera gear. Glad I did the price was so good I could also get the ball head I wanted. Im still getting use to the tripod so far so good its easier than my previous one as I have arthritis in my hand to adjust because of the lever system and the centre colour only needs one finger to extend it.So with the change I can buy myself a bottle of stout and a packet of crisps!

Well designed. Its Manfrotto so the basic product is overpriced. It is after all just a tripod.
