Thanks to the additional 4th section, legs can be collapsed to a more compact dimension, enhancing transportability. It?s the right choice for all those photographers wanting a strong and reliable support even when travelling. This kit comes with a ball head (with quick release camera plate) allowing to position the camera freely and quickly, then block it solidly in place using the convenient single locking knob, ready to shoot in an instant. This tripod features the new QUICK POWER LOCK (QPL). This system is a strong, ultra fast and ergonomic locking system that allows for complete extension of the legs with one?hand opening. One of the most innovative aspects of the new 190 is its compactness, which allows for easier portability. The new patented 90 degree column is accessible when you need it to be, with a quick 'one finger' operation. 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. The new patented Rotating Leveling Bubble is quick to set up and allows 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. 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. 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.
