The Manfrotto 190XPROB is the market leader for affordable tripods and one of the best selling tripods of the X series by Manfrotto. In our recent write up, the Manfrotto 190XPROB tripod is one of the tripods we recommend in comparison to cheap tripods which would give you all sorts of problems. Read more on the article here.
At 1.8KG, the 190XPROB is medium weighted and makes a good tripod for daily use. If you need something lighter, do consider the Manfrotto 190CXPRO3, an exact copy of the 190XPROB, except that it comes in carbon tubings, making it’s weight a light 1.2kg.
In comparison with the Manfrotto 055XPROB, the 190XPROB tripod is significantly lighter but extends to only 122 cm at maximum height without extending the center column. With the center column extended, this goes up to 146 cm, which is reasonable. However, extending the center column also increases vibration and drastically reduces the sharpness of the 190XPROB tripod.
