Manfrotto has introduced a new line of carbon fiber tripods, the CX series, featuring redesigned locking levers, new leg angle selectors, and re-engineered magnesium and aluminum castings. The new CX Pro models include the 190CXPRO3, 190CXPRO4 and 190CX3 tripods.
Manfrotto said the new CX Pro models feature the companyâ€™s innovative and award-winning Q90Â° Quick Center Column System. The Q90Â° system allows the center column to be rotated to a horizontal position with one simple motion, without removing the head or disassembling the column itself, making it easy to switch between framing and positioning setups.
Manfrotto has redesigned the top plate on 190CXPRO4 and 190CXPRO3 tripods. The magnesium top plate on the CX PRO series now incorporates a bubble to aid in leveling the camera and tripod, and has also been refined for a more attractive look. The redesign of the plate also yields a significant reduction in weight.
The 190CXPRO4 and 190CXPRO3 feature all carbon fiber tubes, including a tri-faceted center column, while the simpler CX3 version features carbon fiber tubes paired with an aluminum center column and aluminum top plate.
