Manfrotto - Ball Head 496RC2 and 190DB Tripod

My first Manfrotto ... thanks BT :-)

My 496RC2 ;-) Beautifully built!
Medium size, light, with quick release - perfect for amaterus and professionals.
Weight: 0.42kg
Load Capacity: 6kg
Panoramic rotation: 360º
Colour: Black
Material: Aluminium

Works perfectly with my 190DB Tripodo ;-)

The 190DB ... Lightweight, compact and sturdy, tripod ideal for 35mm SLR cameras, especially when on the move outdoors. Key features include:
four leg angle settings
centre column with an innovative three faced design
low angle adapter built in the centre column for ground level shots
legs collars with double wing locking knob
Verdict? Incredible built quality, a wee bit heavy, but thats what I should expect for stability. Tested with a Nikon D80 with a Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 lens. Points in every conceivable direction including vertically downwards!
