    Manfrotto 190 reviews

    Mini Salon 190 Camera Stand is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Backorder worth the wait! I am a commercial photographer and use the Mini Salon 190 every day. The counter weight could be a little heavier to assist with raising and lowering the arm. The adjustability of the lateral arm is very nice, and being able to flip the camera upside down on it is also a plus to get super low angle shots. With the max height at around 6', the small base tends to get a bit top-heavy if your camera is on the upper 1/3rd of the pole. Just use caution while moving and you should be fine. Upon opening the box for the post, I noticed that the top of the post was extremely greasy, as the counter weight had pushed the cap off the top of the post during shipping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this camera stand! I've only had this camera stand about one week, but so far, I absolutely love it. It was an upgrade from another brand, and this is lightyears better than what I had. The stand was shipped in two separate boxes, and the installation was super easy. I read earlier comments about missing parts or smaller bolts from the manufacturer, and it looks like this problem was fixed. I noticed longer bolts were included in the packaging. I think it took me 30 minutes to put the entire thing together. I have multiple shoots in my studio every day, and so far, it works well with everything. The construction is superb. The action is very, very smooth. I would highly recommend this product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard to Beat in this Price Range This Manfrotto stand once assembled appears to be quite solid and a good value. You may say to yourself, that for$ it should be however, once you realize that the prices of Camera Stands can soar way north of $20,000.00, it puts in better perspective.My gripe with the stand is that NO ONE, either at Manfrotto or anywhere else, appeared to have any knowledge of the assembly of the unit. This would normally have been very simple and straight forward EXCEPT that both stands I received, had the Pulley Cable OFF the Pulley and threaded in the wrong direction. Even this could be rectified fairly easily IF someone had told me to lay the column level horizontally before trying to arrange the cable and pulley. In its normal upright position, I found any adjustment impossible.Not being terribly mechanical, it took me a while to understand the concept, and realize I had to neutralize the weight of the heavy balance inside the Column. Once perfectly level, the balance was no longer fighting the Cable and Pulley. Remove the Pulley, face it so that the Cable faces in the CORRECT direction and there you have it.When purchasing ANYTHING, if adjustments are required, manufacturers should have the obligation of supplying simple, clear, and concise instructions for same. Apparently, very few can be bothered.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from It wasn't meant to be I'm a big fan of Manfrotto, so I was excited to receive this camera stand. The first one arrived but was missing the bolt that attaches the column to the base and the screws that hold the accessory tray in place. B&H referred me to Manfrotto's US distribution center for the missing pieces. After a week of back and forth emails, here is what Manfrotto told me: The screws for the accessory tray are not a separate item. I would have to purchase a new accessory tray for about 50 bucks to get the screws. The bolt is not available in the US, but they were checking with Italy (the company headquarters) to see how much it would cost to ship me the bolt, or I could return the stand to B&H. I begged the parts guy for the specs on the bolt and screws, so I could just pick them up at a local hardware store, but he said he didn't have access to that information. I called B&H, and as usual, their customer service was great. They apologized for my troubles, paid for the return shipping, and sent me a new camera stand. The second stand had a piece of metal broken off the top cap of the column, and it too was missing the bolt that holds the whole thing together. The base is shipped in a separate box surrounded by molded styrofoam. In both cases, the styrofoam had been broken into many pieces during shipping. I don't think Manfrotto has figured out how to reliably ship this heavy product, and their inability to include (or be able to quickly replace) a simple bolt is ridiculous. While I would have really liked to use this stand, after hauling two of them to the UPS store for returns, I didn't have the stamina to try ordering it a third time. For those wanting to use this stand for tethered shooting, here are the accessories B&H recommended for me (using a 13 laptop): Manfrotto MA183 Aluminum Projector Platform and Manfrotto MA840 Camera Support Platform.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality control needs improvement During assembly certain screws were stripped and too short. Luckily a local machine shop fixed the problem for $35.00. Manfrotto USA could not replace the part for four weeks. Quality control needs improvement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always there for you Used for studio product shots. May not be the most exciting equipment in the studio, but it does a very important job and performs very well. Stable, steady, and easy to adjust with a wide range of motion. Very highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, and exactly as designed We use this product for a stationary imaging study of a rotating object (none of us are photographers). For this purpose, it works flawlessly in providing us with stable and repeatable camera positioning. Its heavy base and sturdy mast keep the camera still despite the harsh environment in which it's deployed. We found the stand easy to assemble (full disclosure: we're an engineering firm), even though several of the required fasteners were loose in the box. The assembly instructions left something to be desired, but again, we're an engineering firm and had no trouble. Our only REAL issue was the packaging the stand came in: a triple-walled cardboard box within a triple-walled cardboard box, both secured by monster staples. This was the biggest pain of the setup process. The product itself works exactly as advertised.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I would highly recommend this studio camera stand! I bought this for our professional studio, and it is a perfect fit. I've seen other reviews with bad comments about missing parts, but we were not missing parts. In fact, it was very easy to put together as it obviously didn't not come fully assembled. The only minus with this stand is you need to be careful with moving it with a camera on it. For the most part, it is VERY sturdy for a smaller camera stand. We've had just a few instances where if a heavy camera and lens was attached, and we moved it around the studio a certain way, the center of gravity was a little off and it could have fallen over. It never has fallen, but it is one thing to consider. Having said that, I still give it five stars, because it is very sturdy, fast and professionally constructed.
