Manfrotto
has announced a new line of carbon fiber tripods, dubbed "CX. "
The new CX family is highlighted by redesigned locking levers, new leg angle
selectors, and re engineered magnesium and aluminum castings. The new ergonomic
locking levers are much easier for shooters to operate and thanks to their new
design, become a seamless element of all CX tripods. Much like the aluminum
190XPROB, the new CX PRO models feature Manfrotto's innovative Q90°
(Quick Center Column System). The Q90° system allows the center column to
be rotated to a horizontal position with one simple motion, all without removing
the head or disassembling the column itself, making switching between framing
and positioning setups easier. Additionally, Manfrotto has redesigned the top
plate on 190CXPRO4 and190CXPRO3 tripods. The magnesium top plate on the CX PRO
series now incorporates a bubble to help aid in leveling the camera and tripod,
and has also been refined for a more attractive look. The redesign of the plate
also yields a significant reduction in weight.



In order to reach high-quality standards and high levels of performance, rigidity
and lightness, the new Manfrotto CX tubes are made of 100 percent carbon fiber.
When it comes to the use of composite materials-- especially carbon fiber --
in the manufacture of photographic supports, the end result can vary and ultimately
depends on the production process and the ratio of carbon fiber material to
epoxy present in the tubes. For its CX carbon fiber tripods, Manfrotto utilized
nothing other than 100 percent carbon fiber and employed pultrusion, pull winding
technology to manufacture the tubes. Pultrusion is a production process that
allows for the manufacture of carbon fiber tubes that excel in both flexion
resistance and torsion rigidity; features that matter most for camera support
applications.



The 190CXPRO4 and 190CXPRO3 feature all carbon fiber tubes, including a tri-faceted
center column, while the simpler CX3 version features carbon fiber tubes paired
with an aluminum center column and aluminum top plate.
