Manfrotto MT190X3 Aluminum Tripod

The Manfrotto MT190X3 Aluminum Tripod is an addition to the popular 190 series, adding a Quick Power Lock System, ground level adapter, and an Easy Link attachment. It can hold up to 15.4 lb of gear, and has a maximum height of 63". The ground-level adapter replaces the center column to allow the tripod's mounting plate to sit just 3.5" above the ground with the legs at their widest angle.

The QPL system allows the three leg sections to be completely extended with one hand for simple set up. An Easy Link adapter attachment allows instant connection between tripod and accessories, such as LED lights for macro photography and DSLR video applications using Manfrotto articulated arms and brackets. Each leg can be set at four different angles to accommodate uneven ground or rough terrain.

Manfrotto MVH500AH Fluid Video Head with Flat Base

The MVH500AH Fluid Video Head with Flat Base from Manfrotto is designed with a wide platform, optimal for HDSLR camera bodies. Smooth and precise, it has a maximum load capacity of 17.6 lb and professional quality fluid cartridges on both its pan and tilt axes. It has a pre-set spring-loaded counterbalance of 5.3 lb, its lateral tilt range is -70°/+90° and it provides 360° panning rotation.

The side lock system on the MVH500AH allows the camera and sliding QR plate to click quickly into the head from above, instead of needing to be aligned and slid in from the back. This makes it easier and safer to mount your camera on this head. The head attaches to a tripod via a 3/8"-16 thread and includes a 500PLONG sliding balance plate with a captive 1/4"-20 tie-down screw and a 3/8"-16 adapter bushing. It also provides an Easy Link 3/8" connector on the side of the head to attach accessories such as a video monitor.

The MVH500AH is made from aluminum alloy, measures 3.74" high and provides a bubble level and precision control handle.

I am very impressed with the quality of this tripod with the fluid head hybrid video kit. It works great and is extremely smooth to operate. 100 times better than the cheaper models that are available out there. Highly recommend this tripod!

It's fine if you don't need to make adjustments. It doesn't have a ball leveler, so to level it, you have to adjust each leg manually.

Second one I purchased

Just like my first review, this is excellent. I'm no pro, but this is everything I need and more. I have not had any reliability issues with it.

This is the second one of these I purchased. It just works, what else can I say? I have use a Canon XA40 on one, and a Canon EOS M50 on the other, with long lenses. No problem holding these cameras steady.

Great quality

question

Which carrying bag fit with this Manfrotto MT190x3?
Asked by: Anonymous
The combined folded length of this head and leg kit is 27.36 so I would suggest either the MB MBAG75PN (padded) or MB MBAG75N (unpadded).
