The Manfrotto190XB Tripod with 804RC2 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head Kit was put together by B&H for photographers who need optimal speed and ease of operation with the precision of a pan/tilt head and a quick release.

The 190XB Tripod has been redesigned to offer better ergonomics of the leg-angle release mechanism and improved quick-action leg locks. It is a lightweight, compact and sturdy tripod, ideal for 35mm or digital SLR cameras, light medium format cameras, or compact camcorders.

The 804RC2 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head is lighter than its predecessors due to the use of Adapto material. It also features improved ergonomic design plus a counter spring system. Built into the forward/back tilt axis is a fixed spring that helps to absorb the shock of the full camera weight from crashing down.

Leg warmers on 2 legs ease handling in extreme weather conditions, and help to protect the legs

      Comments about Manfrotto 190XB Tripod with 804RC2 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head Kit:

      I plan to use this with a second small camcorder and already have this tripod, an older model, for the other camcorder. The new tripod is exactly the same as older model (so that's good) but this head will be best for the camcorder that won't be 'moved'. The movement for panning isn't too bad but the tilt is very jerky unless you use great control using both hands on the whole part that moves (not just handle). Using the tilt handle with the panning handle works very nicely for panning but you can't do this for tilting. The pan/tilt head I bought for the older tripod is much better (128LP) and I will use that for the 'moving' camera. Otherwise, the tripod/head appears to be a pretty good value for the money if you aren't going to use for highly professional videos (or you'll do a lot of tiny editing out the jerks) and need to be cost-conscious. It's lightweight for easy travel, has a good snap off system, and will be great for setting up non-shaky weird angles for still photos so will use it that way also I'm sure.

        Comments about Manfrotto 190XB Tripod with 804RC2 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head Kit:

        If like me you are unwilling to spend more money for a tripod than you did for your camera this is a great choice. A tiny bit heavier than I wanted but the action is smooth and this combo will do everything you need to take great photos. The quick release is nice and the legs are quite stable. A good choice for those on a tripod budget.
