This B&H Kit pairs the Manfrotto MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod with a 496RC2 Compact Ball Head. Holding up to 13.2 lb of gear, and with a maximum height of 66.9", 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 MT190CXPRO4'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 496RC2 compact ball head is constructed of die-cast aluminum alloy and is 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.
