About this deal

There are also mounting brackets for straps between the tops of the legs, but no carrying options supplied as standard.

When closed the camera sits about 18"-24" above the ground, which can be lowered even more but pushing the legs out wider. So to answer the question posed at the start of this article, which of the four tripods is best for you? Using the center column of the 190XPROB in this position allows you to shoot from above a tabletop much easier, as compared to a traditional tripod and ball head.While you’re working, you can simply and swiftly change from horizontal to vertical format, without taking the tripod apart.

You'll usually see this author name when the entire team has collaborated on a project or an article, whether that's a run-down ranking of our favorite Marvel films, or a round-up of all the coolest things we've collectively seen at annual tech shows like CES and MWC.To switch the column orientation on the 190XPROB and other PRO models, first untighten the column wing-nut, before extending the column to its maximum height. Anyone who shoots in cold conditions will know an aluminium tripod can become uncomfortable to carry and sticky to touch; indeed under extreme conditions you should avoid touching the metal surfaces at all with bare hands. Not only can they be opened and closed quickly, but also they are adjustable with very little effort.

There are no fewer than 12 models in the current X family, divided equally between the 190 and 055 ranges. Within each range you have the choice of carbon fiber or aluminium models, labelled CX or X respectively. You can then pull it out a little and raise it to its vertical angle, before finally pushing the column down to the desired height.

Instead it features a plate onto which you can mount a wide variety of optional heads to match your exact requirements. With the wing-nut loosened, the oval section may rattle a little disconcertingly, but once tightened it feels rock-solid and we never experienced any issues with slippage while testing. Today the same Manfrotto name and model numbers are now used worldwide, although both it and ‘rival’ Gitzo remain part of the same Vitec group. The 055 range is the bigger of the two, extending to taller heights and handling heavier camera systems, although this in turn also makes them bigger, heavier and more expensive.
