MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod Kit with 494 Mini Ball Head and RC2 Quick Release System Overview

This kit from B&H combines the Manfrotto MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod with the 494 Mini Ball Head and RC2 Quick Release System. The tripod extends to 66.4", folds to 24", and weighs 4.3 lb, while holding up to 8.8 lb.

Manfrotto's Quick Power Lock system allows you to completely extend the four-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 6.6" 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 494 Mini Ball Head has a friction control knob that allows micro movements without engaging the head-locking mechanism, and a locking mechanism that will lock the head in both the +90°/-90° tilt position and the 360° panning position. A quick release plate is included for fast attachment and removal of your camera to and from the head.

Manfrotto MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod

The black, redesigned MT190CXPRO4 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 3.6 lb, and folds down to 20.6" 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 MT190CXPRO4'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 3.2" 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.

I have been shooting with the 190 aluminum tripod for a few years now and love it. Switched to the carbon fiber to save some ounces for landscape hiking. The lighter tripod coupled with my geared head are the perfect combination for my landscape and macro photography needs.

Been Using it with my Matterport.

Make sure to buy some extra rubber feet, they can wear down after a year of using it on concrete and dirt. Light and Portable, doesn't come with a case.. About to buy it now.

These are really cool tripods - they go horizontal!

I had one like this before. It was also a Manfrotto/Bogen. I lost it the wildfires here in CA... This one is actually a little bit nicer. This one doesn't seem to pinch your skin when you click or unclick the tube clamps... With my last one, I injured my hands many times, clamping my skin in the tube-clamps... It goes horizontal very nicely. I do a lot of macro work and it comes in handy. I'm going to be doing some lightboard work to convert negatives in the near future and this will work nicely for that, as well. It's fairly light and small. It is a little bit less stable when fully extended, but I can live with that... Photography is all about 'trade-offs', right? It straps on to my backpack camera case well and is not too big or heavy to carry around with me. It extends over my head and it goes down to about 3, which is amazing! Excellent quality, but you do pay for that with this Italian/Manfrotto...

Light and Rugged

Although I have on had my Manfrotto 190CXPRO carbon fiber tripod for a couple of weeks, it has already proven to demonstrate its worth as a versatile, rugged and lightweight gem. I already have a Befree for trips but this will surely replace it when I need a more rugged tripod for some of my tougher ones. Great buy!

I just received this tripod in the mail today, and I already love it! I got this as an upgrade to use with my Manfrotto 410 Junior geared tripod head. This tripod base is lightweight, sturdy and well made - so far, obviously I haven't had this out in the field yet - but all aspects of the build seem super high quality so far! I do love that there is the option to shoot overhead, that is such a great feature for flat-lays, but I have had issues with wear on that part in the past with previous tripod bases by Manfrotto- as long as you take care and not force the parts, it works well!

question

Could you please tell me the major differences between MT190CXPRO4 and 190CXPRO4? Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
The MT190CXPRO4 would be an upgraded version of the 190CXPRO4. The upgrades include the Quick Power Lock System, which allows for one handed locking and unlocking, an Easy Link Plug, which allows the user to attach Manfrotto grip hardware or lighting for expanded use. Additionally, it has greater weight capacity and greater maximum height.

Could I attach a Manfrotto fluid head mvh500a head to this?
Asked by: Sean
If you are referring to the Manfrotto MVH500AH Fluid Video Head with Flat Base, B&H # MAMVH500AH, which has a flat base and a 3/8"-16 female thread socket on the bottom of the head, yes, it may be used on the top of the Manfrotto MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod. If you are referring to the Manfrotto MVH500A Pro Fluid Video Head with 60mm Half Ball, B&H # MAMVH500A, then no, it would not work.

question

I've read some reviews of this tripod on other sites mentioning that the legs bend and get really flimsy the further the angle of spread you use. Have you guys tested this tripod or heard anything related? I'm worried about making a purchase if I'll run into issues, or I'm going to consider the 3-piece leg instead. Thanks!
Asked by: Anonymous
Generally speaking, 4 section legs while able to collapse smaller are less stable than 3 section legs. The trade off is the collapsed size vs added stability due to the extra connection points for the 4 sections. This would be an issue if the legs were extended to their MAX and at odd angles. At low positions, its best to spread all the leg sections evenly rather than 1 or 2 to their MAX extension.

question

Is this tripod compatible with the nodal ninja system? Specifically the M1-L.
Asked by: Randy
Yes, it is compatible and attaches correctly. As a tip: some customers also attach a leveler in between the tripod and the M1-L so that they can level-out the horizon without having to adjust the length of each tripod leg, instead.
