I don’t know too much about tripods, but I do know that I’ll need one soon as my pictar taking abilities improve. I’m very twitchy for some reason. Anyway, Manfrotto announced a trio of carbon fiber tripods dubbed the CX-series. The low-end 190CX3 isn’t fully carbon fiber but its tubes are while the center column is aluminum as is the top plate. The 190CXPRO4 and PRO3 are fully rigged out and feature Manfrotto’s award-winning Q90º center column, which lets shooters effortlessly switch the column to a horizontal position all in one motion. That’s hot. In case you’re wondering, carbon fiber = lightweight. Full specs and prices can be found after the jump.
