This B&H Kit
pairs the Manfrotto MT190XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod
with a 496RC2 Compact Ball Head.
The tripod can hold 13.2 lb of gear, and extends from 7.5" to 66.9". The tripod folds down to 27.1" for transport. It features a Quick Power Lock System that allows you to completely extend the tripod legs with just one hand. Once set up you can use the MT190XPRO3's rapid center column in standard vertical mode or swing it into horizontal position like a boom with Manfrotto's 90° column feature. Enlarged tabs on the individual leg angle selectors allow you to get down to only 7.5" for macro work with the column in horizontal mode. And once you're down there you can attach any of Manfrotto's flexible or articulated arms to hold lights or reflectors via the Easy Link plug built into the tripod's spider.
The 496RC2 compact ball head is constructed of die-cast aluminum, strong enough to support SLR or DSLR cameras with a medium lens, and light medium format cameras. It has a single repositionable locking lever, ±90° tilt movement, plus a friction control for precise positioning. A safety system prevents the included quick-release plate and camera from accidentally detaching from the head.
