When you are looking for a camera tripod stand, one of the most probable brands that you may probably be looking for is Manfrotto. This is because this company is known to produce high quality and durable tripod stands that normally meet the expectations of the customers.
The Manfrotto 190XPROB is no different from its predecessors. This tripod stand is made as a top of the range kind of stand that should be smaller, more compact and easier to carry around. When fully extended, the Manfrotto 190XPROB tripod stand is about 122cm. however, this length does not include the tripod head which you have to fix before mounting a camera. When the tripod head is fixed, the length of the tripod is increased by about 5 inches. This is not very long but still sufficient for most of the camera activities using the tripod stand.
Furthermore, the tripod stand is more compact meaning that it can be easily transported from one place to another without any problems. This would be one of the most suitable tripod stands when you are going outdoors for activities such as hiking and camping in the woods. One of the most noticeable things about Manfrotto stands is that they are very sturdy. The Manfrotto 190XPROB is no different.

There are three different sections that these legs extend at thus increasing flexibility and at the same time making sure that the legs are firm and strong.
The middle column is also very strong and durable. Most of the other tripod stands that you would find in the market have very weak middle column which break after a short while of using the stand. Nonetheless, for the Manfrotto 190XPROB, you will be sure to get effective services and for a long period of time. The Manfrotto 190XPROB is made of aluminum. This is the reason as why it is very light yet still very strong. Nonetheless, this is not as good as carbon fiber tripod. But if you cannot afford the cost of carbon fibre tripods, then, this would be a good compromise for you. The Manfrotto 190XPROB is also equipped with two leg warmers and a bubble level.
The bubble level is the purpose of making sure that you set your tripod at a level position and take pictures which are perfectly straight. You will have no excuse when you take pictures that are not straight. Apart from taking straight pictures, you can also take pictures with your camera facing downwards when using this stand. This is because the centre column of this stand is very flexible and with only one click, you can change it from a vertical to a horizontal position. Generally this is a great stand and a good deal for your money. It will serve you in the most efficient manner and is one of the recommended kinds of tripod stands.
