Prize Details

Up for grabs are the following:

Manfrotto 190go! MS Carbon 4-Section photo Tripod with twist locks

Manfrotto 190go tripod
Manfrotto’s 190go! M series high-performance carbon fibre tripod is the ideal solution for professional photographers who want maximum performance and lightness combined with classic design for their most demanding projects.

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 set up 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 90° rotation movement. Besides enabling immediate setup, 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 90° 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 centre 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.


XPRO Geared Three-way pan/tilt tripod head

Manfrotto geared head
The highly portable XPRO Geared Three-way pan/tilt Head has the lightest and most precise body in the Manfrotto range. Rigid and strong, it features micrometric knobs so you can position your camera in the desired position in just seconds. With a payload of up to 4kg and a head weighing only 0.75kg, you benefit from a sturdy, stable tripod head that's incredibly light to carry.

Frame images with even greater precision thanks to the geared movement, which will enable you to compose your images one micro-step at a time on all three axes. To adjust the frame, just push the knob against the level to loosen the locking system.

The knobs have also been carefully designed to ensure ergonomic comfort, no matter how much you frame and shoot. With the standard 200PL plate included, you needn't worry about switching plates when using different Manfrotto heads. This is always attached to the camera, meaning you can get ready to shoot photos or videos in almost no time.
