190cx3 : new tripod in town.. 190cx3 vs 190XPROB

002.jpg 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.
