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.
190XPROB Pro Aluminum Tripod
The black Manfrotto 190XPROB Aluminum Tripod builds on the success of the 3001 series and replaces the 3001PRO model. Its Q90 horizontal center column feature has been redesigned to make it even easier to flip from vertical to horizontal. By extending the column to its highest vertical position, it can be swung over to horizontal like a boom without removing the head or disassembling the column itself. The ergonomics of the leg-angle release mechanism and the quick action leg locks have also been improved.
While it can reach a maximum working height of 57.48" (146 cm), it can also be used as low as 3.35". The 190XPROB is ideal for use with cameras and lenses up to 11.02 lb.

804RC2 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head with RC2 Quick Release & 200PL QR Plate
The Manfrotto 804RC2 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head with RC2 Quick Release & 200PL QR Plate is a direct replacement to the popular 3030 and 3029 heads. It is 20% lighter than its predecessors due to the use of Adapto material. It also features improved ergonomic design plus a counter spring system.
Adapto is a special technical polymer that is comparable to aluminum in strength but is 50% lighter. Compared to metals such as aluminum Adapto is an ideal material for photo imaging equipment as it has superb resistance to extreme temperatures and will not corrode or oxidize. Additionally, Adapto is an excellent vibration absorbing material making the 804RC2 head an ideal companion to a MagFibre tripod for the ultimate in vibration free shots.
The 804RC2 head is also the first 3-way head to use 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.
Includes a built-in quick release adapter that accepts the range of different RC2 (3157N) plates.
Handles feature improved design to fit more comfortably in your hand.
Coating on the quick-release lever is more durable and scratch resistant than before.
