Manfrotto tripod receives prestigious TIPA Award - The Manfrotto 190xProb tripod has won the TIPA Award for Best Accessory in Europe 2007.
For the first time a tripod has been awarded the prestigious recognition of TIPA, Europe’s number one association of specialist magazines, which has awarded the Best Accessory in Europe 2007 prize to the 190XPROB mode.
The innovative design of the 190XProB allows photographers to quickly switch the tripod's centre column from a vertical to a horizontal position.
This is important for macro and nature photographers, and previous versions required the centre column to be unscrewed prior to horizontal placement – a time consuming process. This new model allows the switch to be completed in seconds, and there's also a refined leglock system to further improve use in the field.
