This B&H Kit
pairs the Manfrotto MT190CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber Tripod
with a 498RC2 Midi Ball Head.
Holding up to 15.4 lb of gear, and with a maximum height of 67.9", the tripod 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 MT190CXPRO3'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 low 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 498RC2 Midi ball head is constructed of die-cast aluminum alloy and is strong enough to support an SLR camera with a medium lens, and light medium format cameras. It has a single repositionable locking lever for 360° panoramic rotation and ±90° tilt movements, plus a friction control for precise positioning. A safety system prevents the camera and included QR plate from accidentally detaching from the head.
