BEST TRIPOD TIPA AWARD FOR MANFROTTO 190 SERIES

Manfrotto, the world leader in the design, production and distribution of professional products for photography, video and entertainment has been awarded “Best Tripod” TIPA award for the latest 190 series.

The TIPA Awards are renowned as the most influential photo and imaging product awards in markets around the world. The judging panel take into account innovation, the use of leading-edge technology, design and ergonomics, ease-of-use, as well as price/performance ratio.

The new 190 is a unique tripod that holds compactness and more transportability together with incredible stiffness. Aimed mainly to hobbyists, it offers ultra-versatile settings that make it easier to release the imagination and creativity of every photographer.



Solid and fast to set up
The new QUICK POWER LOCK (QPL) system is definitely one of the most eye-catching and unique features of the new 190. It is a strong, ultra fast and ergonomic locking system that allows for complete extension of the legs with one–hand opening. The black and silver colour combination makes the tripod look smart and stylish.

Get ready to go everywhere
One of the most innovative aspects of the new 190 is its compactness, which allows for easier portability. The new patented 90° column is accessible when you need it to be, with a quick ‘one finger’ operation. Both the new flat upper disk and the 4 section model have a more compact closed dimension, reaching any position and opening new shooting possibilities. Thanks to these features, the new 190 is perfect for every occasion: you can carry it everywhere, without worrying about the space in your bag.

The new 190 Tripod can be well-integrated with accessories
The new 190 allows you to create a portable photographic studio, thanks to the new «Easy link» plug, which enables instant connection between tripod and accessories, such as LED lights for Macro Photography and VDSLR applications through arms and brackets.

New 190’s technical features making set up operations smooth
The new patented Rotating Leveling Bubble is quick to set up and allows to you to position the tripod more precisely. It is easy to read, whatever the shape of the head or however the tripod is set up.

While the new Leg Angle Selectors are also easy to set up, as they are made following the most innovative ergonomic standards and prevent fingers and nails being trapped in the upper casting.

Manfrotto’s eye to style and design detail
The entire shape of the tripod has been modified and made more manageable and stylish. The complete re-design of its functional elements shows a particular attention to aesthetics and details: the brand name, for example, appears in many sections of the new 190, including the two legwarmers (on aluminum version only), now made of comfortable rubber to prevent the conduction of heat and cold in extreme weather conditions.




The new 190 is available in aluminum and carbon fiber versions.
