The MK190XPRO3-BHQ2 Aluminum Tripod from Manfrotto pairs the MT190XPRO3 aluminum tripod legs with the MHXPRO-BHQ2 XPRO Ball Head with a 200PL quick release clamp and plate. The tripod can hold up to 15.4 lb, extend to 67.5", and weighs 5.5 lb. The legs use the Quick Power Lock System that allows you to completely extend the tripod legs with just one hand. Once set up, you can use the tripod's rapid center column in standard vertical mode or swing it into horizontal position like a boom with Manfrotto's 90° Column feature.
Enlarged tabs on the individual leg angle selectors allow you to get down to only 3.5" for macro work with the column in horizontal mode. You can attach any of Manfrotto's flexible or articulated arms to hold lights or reflectors via the Easy Link plug built into the tripod's spider. Convenience features include grippy, rubber leg grips on two legs for comfort in cold weather and a bubble level that rotates so that you can see it easily regardless of the tripod's position.
The included ball head lets you fine tune your adjustments thanks to separate knobs for both the ball and the 360° panning, as well as a friction control knob for more exacting placement. The 200PL quick-release clamp and plate allow for quick camera attachment and removal, and two bubble levels let you adjust your camera so the horizon is level. A numbered scale around the base of the head makes repeating exact pans an easy task.
