When you purchase a new tripod, you usually need to make an additional purchase of a pan head or ball head which is attached to the tripod as interface with your camera, lens or scope, allowing you to accurately position it where you want it. With that in mind, B&H Photo
has put together this Convenience Kit
, taking the hassle out of finding the right head compatible with the tripod.
In addition to the Manfrotto 190XB Aluminum Tripod, this kit includes a Manfrotto 496 Compact Ball Head.
