January 26th 2016

Manfrotto, the world leader in photography, imaging equipment and accessories industry, announces the extension of the 190go! range with a new lightweight and compact carbon-fibre tripod and two brand new kits, both in Aluminium and Carbon.

With the 190Go!, photographers can rely on a solid and stable tripod that ensures high image quality in all different positions.

Now available in Carbon Fibre, the 190Go! Carbon is 18% lighter than the current 190 range. New kits complete the 190 range, with the 496RC2 ball head and new 804 Mark II 3 way head with retractable levers kits, allowing you to choose the ideal head for your tripod.

The 190Go! twist locking system provides easier portability, greater compactness and fast access thanks to the One Hand Opening mechanism. The twist locking system allows for effortless opening of the leg locks in just one hand movement. The combination of practicality and speed of the 190Go! will help you to capture emotions and create great pictures that convey a story.

The 190Go! provides maximum compactness and easier portability. When the tripod is closed it measures only 45cm (17.7inches) and the 90° column mechanism is accessed only when needed and does not steal space from other gear. The Carbon Fibre 190Go! weighs just 1.67kg.

The 90° column and the leg angle selectors enable photographers to get low down to the ground, reaching a minimum height of 7 cm (2.75 inches), like no other tripod. The 4 leg angle selectors are ergonomic and allow for quick leg positioning.
The 190Go! also includes an Easy Link attachment in the top casting which enables instant connection between tripod and accessories, such as LED light, reflector, or other piece of equipment.
