manfrotto-winner-thumbnailThe Manfrotto 190 CXPRO3 Carbon Fibre tripod has just been awarded Gold by Digital Photo magazine. Digital Photo looked at six of the top carbon fibre tripods in the market, the Giottos MLT8351B, the Gitzo GT1531, the Manfrotto 190CXPRO3, the Slik Pro 713 CF II, the Swarovski Optik CT 101, and the Velbon Sherpa Pro CF-535.

After vigorous testing, they decided that the Manfrotto 190CXPRO3 made the best investment.

Writer Michael Topham concluded: “The one that stood out from the pack of six was the Manfrotto 190CXPRO3. This is the second Manfrotto tripod to pick up a Gold Award this year, following in the footsteps of its slightly heavier sister, the Manfrotto 190XPROB.

“If a light tripod is is just what you need the 190CXPRO3 is the way to go, offering all the rigiidity, strength and practicality you could want at a sensible price. Choose a good ball or 3-way head and you’ll have a top-notch tripoid that will last you for many years.

“The lightweight materials are solid without sacrificing strength and the 1.29kg weight is user friendly when loaded as part of your backpack. Not only is it nice and light, the ingeniously designed centre column arrangement that Manfrotto calls its ‘Quick Column System’ offers all the shooting angles you could ever wish for.”

So if you’re in the market for a great value, reliable tripod that exudes flexibility and ease of use, then why not check out the Manfrotto 190CXPRO3 tripod. Featuring 3-sections, an integrated levelling bubble and the Q90 degrees centre column mentioned above, it will prove to be a valuable addition to your kit.
