The new 190 series of Manfrotto is now a big dream to own for a pro and hobby photography, the design is much more better than the old tripod and with its new feature – 90° centre column mechanism, that can adjust the tripod to vertical-horizontal setting in order for the photographer to perform limitless creativity.
I’m a Manfrotto tripod user for almost a year, when I first tried the tripod, I can say that this is the best tripod ever for photographers, because its light weight and its easy to use it.
here’s some photos of my Manfrotto tripod, I use it for my time lapse shooting and also for my son’s photography lesson.
But when I saw the Manfrotto new 190 series, the new feature wows me! and I didn’t even think that those 90 degree tripod angle will work.
I saw this during the launch of Manfrotto new 190 series and Be Free tripods. The new 190 series is the high end and new benchmark for Manfrotto with its new feature, while the Be Free tripods are the more light weight and compact tripod by Manfrotto. If my tripod is already light weight then the new Be Free could be more lighter.

It was announced that night that these are aluminum tripod body, but then they also shared that our local distributor will also sell the carbon fiber body, I’m not sure how much will it cost, but I have the feeling that the price will go beyond PHP50k for a carbon fiber body.
