Yesterday when im about to buy manfrotto 190XPROB tripod, i browse manfrotto website for news on latest product. surprise surprise! a new 100% carbon fibre tripod has been released by manfrotto to replace their 190XPROB. OK 190cx3 is the tripod to buy. YL camera service @ pudu plaza, here i come!!
Unfortunately, this new tripod cost almost double of 190XPROB I can only admire the new carbon fibre tripod but my budget only allow me to buy 190XPROB. Nevertheless im happy with my new tripod. Now i can start to explore HDR, night portrait and i can take family picture.
here is the minisite for x tripod : http://x.manfrotto.com/
here is vital stats comparison between 190XPROB and 190CX3
|close length||57.0 cm||55.0 cm|
|minimum height||8.5 cm||6.0 cm|
|maximum height||146.0 cm||146.0 cm|
|weight||1.80 kg||1.32 kg|
|max load capacity||5.00 kg||5.00 kg|
|price||RM 400||RM 800 +|
it’s up to you to decide, for a hobbyist with limited budget like me – it’s a no brainer question… : 190XPROB is the way to go.. hopefully i can live with that extra 500g by saving RM400.
here is some of the tripod picture 🙂
