This kit from B&H combines the Manfrotto MT190XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod with the 460MG 3D Magnesium Head and RC2 Quick Release System. The tripod extends to 67.1", folds to 27.3", and weighs 5.4 lb, while holding up to 6.6 lb.
Manfrotto's Quick Power Lock system allows you to completely extend the 3-section legs with just one hand. The rapid center column can be used in standard vertical mode or it can be swung into horizontal position like a boom. With the column in the 90° position, and the legs at their widest angle, the tripod can place your camera only 7.7" above the ground. This is perfect for macro work or low angle shots. An Easy Link plug is built into the tripod's spider for adding any of Manfrotto's flexible or articulated arms to hold lights or reflectors. A rotating bubble level is included just below the head so you can view it regardless of the tripod's position.
The 460MG 3D Magnesium Head offers three separate axes of movement: panoramic rotation, front-back tilt and side tilt. The rubber grip knobs provide finger tip control, and keep its dimensions confined to a compact size. A bubble level ensures accuracy when leveling your camera to the horizon. A quick release plate is included for fast attachment and removal of your camera to and from the head.
Manfrotto MT190XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod
The black, redesigned MT190XPRO3 Aluminum 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.
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 MT190XPRO3'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 grippy, rubber leg warmers on two legs for cold or inclement weather and 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.

Manfrotto 460MG 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head with 1/4"-20 Mount
This 460MG 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head from Manfrotto has a load capacity of 6.6 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. It includes an RC2 quick release cam lock and a 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate. Compatible quick release plates can be removed from the head by pulling the cam lock's spring-loaded lever, which also allows the plate to be quickly reattached. The cam lock also features a safety catch to prevent a compatible quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.
The head can be rotated 360°, and tilted 180° forwards or 30° backwards, as well as 180° sideways. Each of these three movements function independently of each other and have large, rubberized twist knobs that allow the corresponding movement to be adjusted or locked into place. Each knob utilizes pressurized fluid, which provides an easy-to-tighten, hydrostatic locking mechanism. To promote fast and repeatable device positioning, this 460MG 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head also includes a dedicated angle scale for rotational movements that is designed for easy visibility.
