This Deluxe B&H Kit pairs the Manfrotto MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod with a 498RC2 Midi Ball Head. Also included in the kit are a tripod strap, an extra QR plate, a tripod case, bubble level, and a stone bag. These accessories will both help protect your tripod, and make it easier to capture quality images.
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 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 498RC2 Midi ball head is constructed of die-cast aluminum, 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. Additionally, a safety system prevents the camera from accidentally detaching from the head. One quick-release plate is included with the head, and this deluxe kit provides you with an 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.
