New from Manfrotto - Bogen Imaging have announced the launch of the new Manfrotto 190CX range of carbon fibre tripods.
Bogen Imaging, leaders in photographic accessories for the professional and enthusiast photographer are pleased to announce the evolution of the award winning 190X Manfrotto tripod, with the 100% carbon fibre 190CX.
This new carbon model combines great stability with improved design and features such as a refined leg locking system, new angle adjustment levers, a levelling bubble (incorporated into head plate of the 190CXPRO3 and the 190CXPRO4) and highly designed levers and column components.
Thanks to innovative product design and100% carbon tube structures, the 190CX guarantees a higher load capacity and an increased height but with a lighter overall weight (-20%) thanks to a completely new design which has allowed Manfrotto to lighten the components.
Greg Cooney, Managing Director of Bogen Imaging UK Ltd said, “The Manfrotto 190 tripod was introduced in 1984 and since then it has continued to evolve in terms of its cutting-edge innovation and design.
“Last year the 190x received the prestigious TIPA award for Best Accessory and we are now building on that accolade by introducing the new carbon fibre family members to the successful 190 range."
“The 190 CX represents the core of what Manfrotto stands for by incorporating high quality materials and innovative new designs for improved performance and look.”
The 190CX family includes two PRO versions, the 3-sections 190CXPRO3 and 4-sections 190CXPRO4 and a more simplistic version for the keen enthusiast the 190CX3.
Among the 190CXPRO3 and 190CXPRO4 is the patented Manfrotto horizontal/vertical centre column system, carbon fibre tri-faceted centre column, magnesium top plate, lever lock and top spider die casting, levelling bubble and anti-rotation system.
The 190CX range is available now at an RRP of:
- 190CXPRO3 £239.95
- 190CXPRO4 £249.95
- 190CX3 £199.95
