Manfrotto - 190XPRO L


Pro Aluminium



The 190L is the tallest tripod in the Manfrotto 190 Series, our most popular tripod range ever. 190s are convenient, relatively compact tripods with a smaller cross-section than our professional tripods, but with all the stability, strength and versatile features that demanding photographers need.

The 190L’s advantage over the rest of the 190 tripods is its greater extended height, which makes photographing at full height more comfortable for taller people and gives more positioning and framing flexibility to all users. The 190L isn’t just tall, however: with its independent 4 leg-angle settings, it can be set at any height between the maximum and almost ground level.

Like the shorter 190PROXB model on which it’s based, the 190L features the Manfrotto-patented Q90 system, which allows the centre column to be used vertically (as normal), or swung 90° so it becomes a horizontal arm that offsets your camera from the centre of the tripod for even more framing freedom and precision at any height. The specific advantage of the Q90 system is its speed and ease of use: simply extend the column fully, press the release button, and swing the column round to horizontal; no need to remove the head or disassemble the column itself. Switching between framing and positioning setups is quicker (and safer) than ever.

The 190L has our aluminum flip leg locks with adjustable tension: they can be loosened to suit your strength and preference, and tightened to counteract any effects of wear and aging, keeping the tripod fully functional throughout its long life.

Tubing for the 3 section legs and the centre column is in aluminium, as are all castings.. Two of the three legs also have long padded grips on the top section, to make carrying the tripod and using it in hot or cold weather more comfortable.

Like all our professional and semi-professional tripods, the 190L can be used with almost any standard photographic head: the aluminium top disc has an industry-standard 3/8” male thread, and three optional retaining screws that block Manfrotto heads in place and stop them loosening unintentionally.

The 190 Series is appreciated by keen hobby photographers worldwide, but the 190L takes everything to another level: while other tripods can be an obstacle to photographers’ creative vision, the 190L offers an amazing positioning versatility that help people frame unique points of view and capture truly stunning images.
