PMA 2010 Report
Manfrotto takes great pride in bringing new products to market that make the lives of professional and amateur shooters as easy as possible. With a dedicated team of engineers that share a passion for photography, shooters can rest assured that they can turn to Manfrotto for a complete array of solutions that are specifically designed to give them the ability to get the results they’re looking for. At this year’s PMA in Las Vegas, Manfrotto will again demonstrate its commitment to product improvement, as it will be showcasing three new tripods that join its popular 190 series - the 190XDB, 190XB and the 190XPROB. Throughout the design process, attention to detail and functionality are job one at Manfrotto.
Manfrotto Tripods - 190 series
When improving on its already popular 190 series of tripods, Manfrotto engineers went back to the drawing board to design a tripod that was better not only by specifications, but by ergonomics; the new 190XDB, 190XB and 190XPROB represent exactly that. One of the most noteworthy new features is the improved and patented horizontal center column, which is now easier to use than ever. In fact, the center column of the 190XPROB can now be rotated to a horizontal position by simply extending the column to its highest position, all without removing the head or disassembling the column itself, making switching between framing and positioning setups a breeze. While the 190XDB and 190XB don’t feature the same horizontal center column feature as their XPROB sibling, they do share the same, new and improved, eye catching design and ergonomics, including redesigned leg angle presets that allow the cameras to reach all intermediate heights from minimum to maximum extension. Wider leg angles also increase the tripods’ stability in bad weather or uneven terrain
Manfrotto Tripods - Features
Smaller and lighter than the 190XPROB, the 190XDB and 190XB provide shooters with the same rigorous support in a more compact package. The 190XB features the same leg warmers and quick action leg locks as the 190XPROB, while the 190XDB is the more economical model of the series, featuring twist leg locks without leg warmers.
