This B&H Kit
pairs the Manfrotto 190XPROB Aluminum Tripod
with the 804RC2 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head
. The tripod has a load capacity of 8.8 lb, weighs 5.6 lb, and extends to 62.2". The rapid center column can be inverted 90°, allowing the tripod to reach a minimum height of 8.1". The tripod's three leg sections are held in place with flip locks, and each leg is individually adjustable.
The 804RC2 is a 3-way head with a counter spring system to help protect your equipment. Built into the forward/back tilt axis is a fixed spring that helps to absorb the shock of the full camera weight from crashing down. The spring also makes it easier to position the camera on this axis since it opposes some of the camera weight. A quick-release plate is included with the head.
