"This Manfrotto's 190go! M-Series high-performance aluminum tripod kit with 3-way head is the ideal solution for professional photographers who want maximum performance and lightness combined with classic design for their most demanding projects, complete with one of Manfrotto's highly successful precision heads. This professional tripod is the lightest, most compact solution in the 190 range. It mounts the M-lock system, which is designed for photographers looking for a fast locking mechanism allowing the tripod to be setup in seconds, leaving the user free to concentrate on the shot they wish to capture.The M-lock can be engaged or disengaged with a single 90deg. rotation movement. Besides enabling immediate set up, the M-lock is highly ergonomic and ensures precise movements and high stability, even with heavy loads. Moreover, this mechanism has no protruding parts, which means the 190go! M series can slip into and out of its storage pocket effortlessly. The tripod also has a built-in 90deg. column mechanism in its top casting, which stays safely stored away until needed. When it's time to use it, just raise it with a single finger, letting the center column swing out into the horizontal position. Combined with the tripod's four leg angles, this mechanism gives perfect stability for shooting on uneven ground. The new 190go! Aluminum M-series enjoys professional tripod status because it features D-shaped aluminum tubes, usually available in the successful 190"
