Manfrotto 190CXPRO3 overview

  • 1Description

The black, redesigned MT190CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Manfrotto builds on the success and popularity of the previous 190 series with professional hardware and convenience features that make it even easier to use than its predecessor. When the three leg sections and center column are fully extended, the tripod reaches a maximum height of 63", and its load capacity of 15.4 lb makes it a good choice for larger cameras. The tripod weighs 3.5 lb, and folds down to 24" for transport.

Set up is faster than ever with Manfrotto's Quick Power Lock System that allows you to completely extend the tripod legs with just one hand. Once set up you can use the MT190CXPRO3'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 3.5" 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.

Convenience features include a bubble level that rotates so that you can see it easily regardless of the tripod's position. Finally, Manfrotto's insistence on form following function has yielded a tripod that you'll not only be happy to use but you'll be happy to be seen with, too.

Fast Setup with QPL
The Quick Power Lock (QPL) system is one of the most eye-catching and unique features of the redesigned 190. It is a strong, ultra fast, ergonomic locking system that allows for complete extension of the legs with one hand.
90° Column
One of the most innovative aspects of the 190 series is its compactness, which allows for easier portability. The redesigned patented 90° Column is accessible whenever you need it with simple one finger operation.
Easy Link Plug
The plug allows instant connection between tripod and accessories, such as LED lights for macro photography and DSLR video applications using Manfrotto articulated arms and brackets.
Rotating Leveling Bubble
The bubble is easy to read, whatever the shape of the head or however the tripod is positioned. Just rotate it towards you for easy viewing.
Leg Angle Selectors
Each leg has user selection of four angles to accommodate uneven ground or rough terrain. The selectors are manufactured according to most innovative ergonomic standards to prevent fingers and nails being trapped in the upper casting.
Manfrotto's Eye to Style and Design Detail
The entire shape of the tripod has been modified and made more manageable and stylish. The complete redesign of its functional elements shows a particular attention to aesthetics and details: the brand name, for example, appears in many sections of the new 190, including the two legwarmers made of comfortable rubber to provide a secure grip and prevent the conduction of heat and cold in extreme weather conditions.

    Manfrotto 190CXPRO3 reviews

    MT190CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor product I bought this about a year go with the aim of having a smaller, lightweight carbon tripod. After of a year of intermittent use, it's literally falling apart. In the field yesterday I thought it was a bit loose and the top assembly simply pulled right out of the vertical post. It could have dumped my camera and lens on the ground!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb tripod My main objective in obtaining this tripod was to be able to take it hiking/camping. It's lightweight, although, with a good ball head it's not as lightweight as I'd hoped. The adjustable leg lock tension is a plus. The screw for securing ball heads is also an unexpected extra. It easily supports a heavy ball head and a 70-200 mm Nikkor lens and can be attached to my backpack for hiking. I've searched for a few years for a good sturdy yet portable tripod and am pleased with the performance of this one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yup, it's a (light) tripod! It basically is everything the specs say it is. However, not having marking on the lower leg section seems like a big miss. (I'm 5'4 and I can't see through my viewfinder with the legs fully extended) Too bad one has to take a light tripod and then put a beast of a head on it if you want to match the carrying specifications. What we need are lightweight heads too!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great CF tripod When I started off in DSLR photography, I originally got a Giottos carbon-fiber tripod. It was nice and compact when folded, but I ultimately wasn't satisfied with the stability of the legs. Recently, I traded in for this Manfrotto 190CXPro3, and while bulkier, it's much more stable fully-extended. The tilting center column ought to come in handy for macro and other close-up work. And I like how the head platform has a swiveling bubble level.Cons:If you want to hang a weight from it for increased stability, the hook for doing so is on the side of the leg spider, not the center column. (The center column has an unlock button for the tilting feature.) It's a little inconvenient.Also, the head platform has just a single set-screw for locking down whatever head you use. Most other tripods I've seen with set-screws use at least three (equally-spaced). If you're not careful and overtighten that single set screw, the head might tilt off-center, which might seem imperceptible but will affect your ability to level it for panoramic shots.As I said, the Manfrotto tripod is bulkier than my old one. I could strap the Giottos easily to my camera backpack, but it's going to be a little more difficult to carry the Manfrotto the same way.It does not come with any kind of carrying case. Fortunately I already have a padded case and shoulder strap I can use with it, but if you don't have one, consider it a must-have extra expense.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and Sturdy Great leg latches that actually give a great deal of confidence when they snap. It is both light and very sturdy. The only negative is that the center column is very difficult to raise and lower when a camera is attached (which is the only time I would use it, right?) Especially if the camera has a heavy lens and the center column is being flexed just a little, it is a real pain to move. I emailed Manfrotto to see if there was some way to make it easier, but they did not respond

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I expected I paid a bit more because it is the new model but it is all that I expected. Sturdy and quality details throughout. Easy to deploy. My only gripe is that it does not come with a tripod bag. Not even a cheap one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MT190CXPRO3 CarbonFiber Tripod/Manfrotto I use this tripod to take landscape photography with my Nikon D800 body and Tokina 16-28mm lens. Incredible new design and functionality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice This was a huge improvement over the previous version of the product. It is a bit heaver but also more stable. The bubble level now rotates. Before it was always getting in the way of my ballhead knob. Now I just rotate it. The clamps on the legs are a gem. Much improved over previous models and far superior to twist locking legs.
