This Deluxe B&H Kit consists of a Manfrotto MT190XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod with a 496RC2 Compact Ball Head. Also included in the kit are a tripod strap, tripod case, bubble level, an extra QR plate, and a stone bag. These accessories will both help protect your tripod, and make it easier to capture quality images.
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 transporting it in the included padded case. 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 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 quick-release plate and camera from accidentally detaching from the head. The head includes one quick-release plate, and this deluxe kit provides you with one extra plate as well.
To carry the tripod when it's not in the case, a strap with a neoprene shoulder pad is provided. Also included is a stone bag that attaches to the tripod's legs, providing added stability by placing stones or other heavy objects in it. The included bubble level allows you to accurately align your camera to the horizon.
