The Manfrotto 190XPROL is the tallest and newest addition to the 190 series of tripods. An aluminum tripod, this model can be quickly extended to up to 164 cm in height and features the patented Q90° System.
The latter lets photographers position the centre column at a 90-deg angle above the legs. The system can be reset quickly back to its original vertical position for normal shooting.
The 190XPROL is sold alone for photographers who want to use their own head; it has a suggested retail price of $229.95. It’s also sold in kits with either the 804RC2 three-way pan head or 496RC2 ball head, for $319.95 and $339.95, respectively.
