MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod with XPRO Geared 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head Kit Overview

The black, redesigned MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod with XPRO Geared 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head Kit 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 predecessors. When the three leg sections and center column are fully extended, the tripod reaches a maximum height of 68.1". When paired with the included XPRO head the load capacity of 8.8 lb makes it a good choice for midsize cameras. The tripod kit weighs 5.3 lb, and folds down to 25.7" 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 3.5" 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.

The included XPRO Geared 3-Way Head can hold up to 8.8 lb while weighing only 1.7 lb. It is made from a rigid technopolymer called Adapto that maintains strength without adding excess weight.

The head features micrometric knobs, allowing you to place your camera exactly where you need it. For larger adjustments the knobs can be pressed down against a lever, unlocking the movement of each axis individually. The head has a front tilt range of -20/+90°, a lateral tilt range of -90/+30°, and a 360° pan range. A 200PL quick release plate is included for fast and easy camera attachment and detachment.

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.

Manfrotto XPRO 3-Way, Geared Pan-and-Tilt Head with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate

This XPRO 3-Way, Geared Pan-and-Tilt Head from Manfrotto has a load capacity of 8.8 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. It includes an integrated RC2 quick release cam lock and a 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate. RC2 compatible quick release plates such as the 200PL-14 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 the 200PL-14, or another compatible quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

Cameras, sport optics, or camcorders that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the quick release plate before securing it to the pan-and-tilt head. The head can be rotated 360°, tilted 90° forwards or 20° backwards, as well as 90° sideways for portrait orientation. Each of these three movements function independently of each other and have individual, spring-clamp controls. Squeezing each clamp's two handles allows the corresponding movement to be rapidly adjusted, and once the handles are released, the adjustment is locked into place. One handle on each clamp is also an integrated twist knob that allows incremental, geared adjustments, which help to ensure that any device mounted to this XPRO 3-Way, Geared Pan-and-Tilt Head is precisely positioned relative to the subject.

To further promote fast and repeatable device positioning, this XPRO 3-Way, Geared Pan-and-Tilt Head also includes dedicated angle scales for each movement that are designed for easy visibility.

MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod with XPRO Geared 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head Kit Reviews

These are really cool tripods - they go horizontal!

By Garrett

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...

Terrific

The Manfrotto tripod is incredibly stable but light. The pan/tilt head is just what I need in the studio.

Love it!  Unlock all three locks per leg simultaneosly.

I've been using this for night and day photography for about 2 years and it has never failed. Very reliable, light and easy to take out and put away.

First time out was a night shoot with a Canon 5D and heavy lens. Handled the weight well and is easy to set up in the dark. Adjustments are smooth and easy to operate in darkness. An excellent purchase, one I recommend.

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!

Very fragile and not good if you work in harsh conditions or go on expeditions.

I'm using it as a tripod for a spotting scope for birding, not for photography, so I probably won't use all the features built in. However, I like the sturdy feel of this tripod. The flip clips for the leg extensions feel very secure and I like having the attached tool to tighten the legs if necessary. Please note there are no leg warmers on this model as described in the product description.

Excellent Tripod

After trying a couple of unknown brands, I finally decided to give Manfrotto a try. While I do think the price is a bit much, it's an excellent piece of equipment.

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.
