Manfrotto 190XDB 3 Section Aluminum Tripod
We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock.
- Lighter in Weight and Slightly More Compact
- Has an Ergonomics Leg Angle Release Mechanism and the Wing Locking Knobs
The Manfrotto 190XDB three-section tripod is stable, flexible, and easy to use, making it a great choice for amateur and professional photographers alike. The tripod is distinguished by its redesigned aluminum frame, which is lighter than previous incarnations and slightly more compact.
As a result, it's more convenient to bring this tripod along on shoots without weighing yourself down.
Plus, the ergonomics of the leg-angle release mechanism and the quick-action leg locks have also been greatly improved, making it a breeze to open, position, and close the tripod in just a few seconds. The tension of the locking mechanism is even user-adjustable, so you can find the right tension for your comfort level.
And should you need to balance the tripod on an uneven surface, you can set each of the legs to a different spread angle over the tripod's center of gravity--a must for nature shots on outdoor terrain.

THe legs can be adjusted to so many angles, and it sits nice and tight.
I highly recommend this tripod for anyone who needs something sturdy and easily portabe...(it folds up pretty nice, too)
My students and I use this tripod for video projects, and we all love that the tripod can raise or lower the camera from 13" to almost 58" to vary the angles.
Note to buyer: The price of the tripod is a bit misleading...This tripod does NOT come with a head or quick release plate. To use the tripod I had to purchase a head (I chose the Manfrotto 128LP Micro Fluid Head for its smooth action and no-frills at about $70) and the Manfrotto 323 RC2 Rapid Connect Adapter with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate (at about $30).
With all the pieces in place, this is a tripod that I'll be able to use for years with both HD video cameras and SLRs. I'm happy with the purchase and love the Manfrotto brand.
This is my entry level tripod - at a very reasonable price - that has yet to let me down.
It feels very sturdy and is light to carry around.
The more expensive Manfrotto models have quick release latches to extend the tripod legs; this one uses a screw-in system. I don't mind it the least bit. It is quick to setup and performs extremely well. I am 6 ft tall and along with a quality ball/joystick head mount reaches all the way to my eye-level.
I highly recommend this tripod to anybody seeking their first tripod for a DSLR but don't want to spend a grip. The setup I have is the Manfrotto 190XDB along with the Manfrotto 322RC2 Joystick Head Short joystick tripod head mount
I used both with my D3100 and D90 during the holiday home party. All shots were made in low light without flash. Results were excellent.
