PPE 2013: Hands-on with new Manfrotto 190 tripods

We're at the Photo Plus Expo in New York, and this morning we got an opportunity to look at Manfrotto's new 190-series tripods. The 190 series has been among Manfrotto's most popular products for a long time, and the recently announced updates take up less space when folded, and add some interesting and well-thought-out improvements to the design. The tripods come in either carbon fiber or aluminum, with a choice of three- or four-section legs. 

In this image, you can see the tripod positioned low to the ground, with the head in its horizontal position, and an LED light screwed into the accessory port on the 'shoulder' of the tripod.
