    190pro allows the centre column to be removed while 190Xpro does not.

    190pro can go to super low angle @ 11cm (just by removing the centre column and leave its short column in place) You can also invert the column so that you can take in special scenario.

    Advantage of the 190xpro is that 1 button action to allow you to change from veritical position to horizontal.

    Disadvantage of 190xpro is that it does not come with a hook for you to counter weight the tripod. (both horizontal position and veritical position)

    Concise! Look like I still prefer 190Pro than the new model.
