The tripod can hold 15.4 lb of gear, and extends from 8.9" to 68.3". The tripod folds down to 28.5" 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 8.9" 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 498RC4 is constructed of die-cast aluminum and has a single repositionable locking lever for 360° panoramic rotation and ±90° tilt movement, plus a friction control for precise positioning. Cameras are attached to the ball head with the included 410PL plate and RC4 quick release with 1/4"-20 male threads. The head to tripod attachment has 3/8"-16 female threads. Additionally, the quick release has a safety system to prevent it from accidentally detaching from the head. This kit also provides an extra quick-release plate.
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. A three-axis hot shoe bubble level allows you to accurately align your camera to the horizon.
